James Pimm is usually credited with creating this quintessentially English summertime thirst-quencher. He began trading as a shellfish-monger in 1823-4 on London's Lombard Street, before moving to nearby number 3 Poultry, also in the heart of the City. There he established Pimm's Oyster Warehouse.

Review and Tasting


Sampled on 23/06/2017

Appearance:

Clear, dark reddy-brown amber.

Aroma:

Watered down and spiced (cinnamon) cola with orange zest, freshly roasted coffee and complex herbal aromas.

Taste:

Bittersweet, orangey, herbal and mildly bitter with camomile, cinnamon, star anise, dark liquorice, chocolate and rootyness.

Aftertaste:

Slightly bitter with lingering liquorice, rooty and herbal notes. Long lingering cola and rooty bitterness.

Overall:

Reminiscent of an Italian amaro. Mix with lemonade or ginger ale to make a classic Pimm's Cup but also consider as a bittersweet cocktail ingredient.
