Top 10 St George’s Day drinks23rd April, 2013 by Andy Young
Pimm was a farmer’s son from Kent, who became the owner of an oyster bar in the City of London. Pimm offered a tonic at his bar, which was said to be an aid to digestion and was served in a special tankard, known as the “No. 1 Cup.” This name is still shown on the Pimm’s bottle today.
The brand has been a regular feature of many English (and indeed British) celebrations over the years and a Union flag bottle was produced for last year’s diamond jubilee.
Pimm’s recently introduced a blackberry and elderflower variation and you can expect to see many people raising a Pimm’s to St George today.
