The original Pimm’s No.1 Cup is a gin-based spirit with a fruity flavour, made from a secret recipe infusing gin with a delicate combination of herbal botanicals, caramelised orange and warm spices. Established in 1840 by James Pimm in his famous Oyster Bar in London, Pimm’s and the accompanying phrase ‘Pimm’s O’Clock’ have become icons of British summertime.
