A popular Glasgow-based drinks company has just announced the launch of its latest release - a Pink Shimmer gin. 

The team behind Ellis Gin have added the latest gin, the third they’ve released, to their premium gin range.

Ellis Gin No.4 is a pink shimmer gin created using the same base botancials as No.1 by contract distiller Darren Edmond at Illicit Spirits, and is designed by Ellis founder Carol Jackson to be a gin for people who “need a bit of shimmer in their lives”.

Baby pink in colour and featuring a golden shimmer, the gin is made using juniper, citrus peel, coriander, angelica and orris root alongside a Strawberry syrup – which gives the gin its unique flavour and colouring.

The new gin joins Ellis No.2 – Scottish Bramble, and Ellis Gin No.3 – Butterfly Pea in the core range.

Bottled at 40% abv and priced at £29 for 500ml, Ellis Pink Shimmer is available from small independent retailers across Scotland or can be purchased online via the website www.Ellisgin.com
