View Detail
Originally created in 1823 by James Pimm of Kent to be served as a digestif, Pimm's Oringinal Gin Sling was the first "house cup" at London's popular Oyster Bar, thus the spirit's name: Pimm's No. 1 Cup. A special blend of herbs, liqueurs and quinine were steeped in gin and paired with oysters on the half shell. As the brand's reputation grew other Pimm's Cups were developed, each based on different spirits, including vodka and brandy, but only the gin-based cup is available in the US today. The iconic cocktail, appropriately named Pimm's Cup, has been a staple of British summertime drinking for nearly a century.
