Information

The Pimm’s Cup, though relatively underappreciated in the United States, is sometimes considered the second most popular drink in the England, second to tea obviously, and is associated with many of the events attended by the well-to-do. Alongside champagne, it is the official drink of the Wimbledon tennis tournament, the Henley Royal Regatta, and the Glyndebourne Festival Opera. In addition, it is also the standard drink at polo matches and at summer garden parties. The closest analog that we have in the United States is the association of the Mint Julep with the Kentucky Derby, but that is a relatively limited association in comparison.
