Wikipedia Article About Pimm's Cup on Wikipedia
Pimm's is a brand of alcoholic beverages now owned by Diageo. Its most popular product is Pimm's N°1, a gin-based beverage that can be served both on ice or in cocktails. The recipe of Pimm's N°1 is secret; it has a dark tea color with a reddish tint, and tastes subtly of spice and citrus fruit. A close approximation to Pimm's N°1 can be prepared by mixing one measure of gin with one measure of red vermouth and half a measure of triple sec, although this will lack the spices that give Pimm's its distinctive flavour.
There are five other Pimm's products besides N°1. The essential difference between them is the base alcohol used to produce them: N°1 is based on gin, N°2 on whisky, N°3 on brandy, N°4 on rum, N°5 on rye and N°6 on vodka. At present the only variants aside from N°1 still in production are N°s 6 and 3 (recently marketed as "Pimm's Winter"), both of which are made in much smaller quantities than N°1.
