The Oddbins Take

They Say

This fruity, gin-based liqueur was first produced in London by oyster bar owner and farmer’s son James Pimm, as a more palatable alternative to the gin that his dandy customers, had with their oysters.

The business went from strength to strength, gaining in popularity as a classic summer drink, served with lemonade and freshly chopped ingredients including strawberries and mint. It is now a staple at events like Wimbledon, the Chelsea Flower Show and the Henley Royal Regatta.

We Say

With its bright hue, inviting, fruity aromas and much-contended serving style, Pimm’s No. 1 is the drink of the summer.

Alter Ego: Billie Holiday; famed for its inimitable interpretation of Summertime, as soon as you hear its sweet, dulcet tones, you know it’s time to down tools, grab a picnic rug and start livin’ easy.

Oliver Thring in The Guardian, 18/05/2010 "Pimm's is fabulous: glorious and cloying and tawny, as rich and fruity as a Tatler deb. God knows what's in it. The recipe is a secret, and only the 'Pimm's Six', whoever they might be, are privy to it."
