We are a family run business based in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The three of us all play a part: Kieren and Steph run the business with the support of our amazing colleagues

Kieren set up the business in 2019 after falling in love with the science of making alcohol. It had always been a dream to run his own business. After a number of months of getting the correct licences and insurances, we were able to sell our first bottle of liqueur in December 2019 at the Thainstone Christmas market.

Kieren’s background is in retail so although he had sold large volumes of alcohol, there were many things to learn. Now the business has grown to the level that we have a number of brand Ambassador, colleagues in the production team and online/admin team.

 

Products

Creating products that are pure has always been our clear vision. From the moment we began, the key to our success has been using the highest premium gin/vodka and the best quality fruit we can source. It is with pride that we produce liqueurs with no chemicals, additives, preservatives or nasties. Absolutely packed full of flavour, we are confident, in a busy marketplace, that the purity, quality and flavour of our liqueurs speak for themselves and ensure our customers continue to fall in love with them.

Our current products:

  • Strawberry Liqueur
  • Raspberry Liqueur
  • Rhubarb & Lemon Liqueur
  • Blueberry Liqueur
  • Blackberry Liqueur

With a number of new products coming out this year.

You will be responsible for sales at all direct to customer events, selling Ellon Spirits products at the current recommended retail price. (Current RRP of Ellon Spirits is £22 per bottle). High levels of customer service and engagement skills are essential to achieving success within this role.

During the course of events you will be able to offer product samples (10ml) to potential customers and utilise your knowledge and passion of the brand to inform customers of how best to accompany and serve each product.

At the end of the each event you will be responsible for packing down and ensuring you leave the area as found. Including removal and appropriate disposal of any rubbish and recycling.
