Ellis Gin was created and launched in December 2016 and since then the original Ellis No. 1 Gin has been used as the base for the ready to drink Gin & Mix gin cocktail range. Carol, the founder of Ellis Gin, was looking to grow the Ellis Gin range and in September 2018 she launched two new colour-changing gins including a Scottish Bramble Gin and a Butterfly Pea Gin. Since then a pink gin has been added to the range with further additions in the pipeline. The gins are all made in Glasgow with bottling and labelling being done by hand. Each bottle is individually numbered with the batch and bottle number.
