A great looking bottle of Pimm's No. 6 Cup, based on vodka rather than the more common No. 4's gin. This bottle was originally sold in the NAAFI, the store found on British military bases, and will, according to the label, make 16 half pints (or 32 'Pimmlets') of fruit cup when lemonade is added.
A 1960s bottling of the classic English summer drink, Pimm's No. 1. There were originally 6 cups, each with a different base spirit, but only 3 remain in production and of these, no.1 is the best selling and is based on gin.
An old bottle of Pimm's No.3 (Brandy Sling) which was bottled sometime in the 1960s. The bottle itself is embossed with measures down the side, each measure being a sufficient amount to make a pint of their recommended drink.
An old litre bottling of Elixir di China from Martini & Rossi, not named after the country, but after Cinchona bark, one of the ingredients and a source of quinine, essential in the fight against malaria. We estimate this was bottled in the 1960s.
Please note this bottle has a torn label as shown in the photograph.
