What Is the Alcoholic Content of Pimms?


Pimm’s No. 1 Cup is 25 percent alcohol by volume. Pimm’s No. 1 is a gin-based fruit cup that is generally served with English-style lemonade, ginger ale or champagne.

Pimm’s also produces other alcoholic beverages, though not all of them are as widely available as Pimm’s No. 1 Cup. Pimm’s No. 3 Cup, a brandy-based drink seasonally available as Pimm’s Winter Cup, also has a 25 percent alcohol content by volume. The vodka-based Pimm’s No. 6 Cup is also 25 percent alcohol by volume, but Pimm’s Blackberry & Elderflower Special Edition is 20 percent alcohol by volume. Pimms has been owned by Diageo since 1997.
