Ellis Gin

Glasgow, Glasgow City, Scotland
Find your perfect gin

Ellis Gin was initially created in late 2016 by founder Carol Jackson as the base for the highly successful Gin&Mix cocktails. The gin evolved over a period of 18 months and Ellis Gin officially launched in September 2018 as two flavoured, coloured gins, which enchantingly change colour when mixer is added. The flavours are Scottish Bramble and Butterfly Pea.

Ellis Gin is discreetly distilled by Illicit Spirits in a hidden railway arch in Glasgow. Produced in a 100 litre copper still in small batches but with big flavours. Ellis is a real family affair, named affectionately after Carol’s daughter, each bottle is hand bottled, hand labelled, hand sealed and individually numbered by the family.
