Vimto® is a unique mixed fruit juice drink blended with a secret recipe of herbs and spices delivering a wonderful flavour sensation. The distinct blend of herbs and spices still remains a secret to this day.

Vimto® was created in 1908 in Manchester, England, by John Noel Nichols (1883 - 1966) and has since enjoyed over 100 years of success, celebrating its centenary in 2008. The brand was first developed as a tonic with health giving qualities originally selling under the name Vim Tonic (a health tonic that gives vim and vigour), and was later shortened to Vimto®. Since then Vimto® has enjoyed great success overseas and expanded its worldwide distribution into 70+ countries gaining a considerable market share in the Middle East, Far East and Africa.

Vimto® is available in a variety of flavours and formats from carbonate to still to cordial, in bottles, cans and tetra packs, Vimto® still has the same great taste all over the world.
