Pimm's is a brand of alcoholic beverages now owned by Diageo. Its most popular product is Pimm's No. 1 cup. There are six Pimm's products, only two of which remain in continuous production. The essential difference among them is the base alcohol used to produce them. Pimm's is most common in Britain, particularly Southern England. It is one of the two staple drinks at Wimbledon and also the standard cocktail at British and American polo matches. Over the years Pimm's extended their range, utilizing a number of other spirits as bases for new "cups". In 1851 Pimm's No. 2 Cup and Pimm's No. 3 Cup were introduced. After World War II, Pimm's No. 4 Cup was invented, followed by Pimm's No. 5 Cup and Pimm's No.6 Cup in the 1960s. In 2005, Pimm's reintroduced Pimm's Winter Cup, which consists of Pimms No. 3 Cup (the brandy variant) infused with spices and orange peel.
