The Vimto® flavour was created in 1908 in Manchester,
England, by John Noel Nichols (1883 - 1966) as a drink
and has since enjoyed over 100 years of success,
celebrating its centenary in 2008. Vimto® is primarily a
range of drinks that includes ready to drink, cordial
and carbonated variations and is sold in over 70
countries. Vimto® International has responsibility for
the licensing, manufacture, distribution and promotion
of Vimto® branded products worldwide.

Vimto® has fast become a popular choice due to its
unique flavour. Fruit juice (Grape, Raspberry and
Blackcurrant) is blended with a secret recipe of herbs
and spices to deliver a wonderful taste sensation. This
distinct blend of herbs and spices still remains a
secret to this day.
We pride ourselves in only using the finest ingredients,
always checking that taste and quality meet the highest
of standards. All products that carry the Vimto® name
have met the strict criteria to qualify to ensure the
Vimto® name is only present on the best of products.
Vimto® first entered the confectionary market in 2002
launching the Vimto® ice lolly. Following the success of
the ice lolly, Vimto® then launched a hard boiled lolly,
both of which are still enjoyed today. With today’s
consumer not only watching what they spend but also
becoming more health conscious, Vimto® offers a
confectionary snack suitable for everyone. Vimto® have
