James Pimm, a farmer's son from Kent, became the owner of an oyster barin the City of London, near the Bank of England. He offered a gin-based tonic containing a secret mixture of herbs and liqueurs.

Pimm's began large-scale production in 1851. The distillery began selling it commercially in 1859 using hawkers on bicycles. In 1865, Pimm sold the business and the right to use his name to Frederick Sawyer. In 1880, the business was acquired by future Lord Mayor of London Horatio Davies, and a chain of Pimm's Oyster Houses appeared. The brand fell on hard times in the 1970s and 1980s. The Oyster House chain was sold. Pimm’s most popular cup and our drink of the month is Pimm’s No 1.

Our recipe for a jug of Pimm’s

300mls Pimm’s no1
1.5 litres Lemonade (Add lemonade to taste)
Half a Cucumber (Sliced thinly)
1 Orange
20g Mint (Add more to taste)
100g Strawberries (Cut in half)
