Created in 1908 at 19 Granby Row in the centre of Manchester England, by (John) Noel Nichols of Blackburn, Lancashire (1883–1966), a wholesaler of herbs, spices and medicines. He saw the market opening for soft drinks due to the temperance movement and the passage of the 1908 Licensing Act. Originally sold under the name Vim Tonic, which Nichols shortened to Vimto in 1912. Registered as a health tonic or medicine the  soft drink  was then re-registered in 1913 as a cordial. In 1910, because the Granby Row premises had become too small, they moved to a warehouse at Chapel Street, Salford, then to Old Trafford (1927) and finally (1971) to a state of the art plant in Wythenshawe, Manchester.

Made up of three fruit juices – grape, raspberry and blackcurrant, they are blended with herbs and spices and then carbonated to give you that lovely flavour. Just add water to get the perfect cordial to suit your taste buds.

A soft drink originating from England. It was first manufactured as a health tonic in cordial form, then decades later as a carbonated drink. It contains the juice of grapes, raspberries and blackcurrants (in a 3% concentration), flavoured with herbs and spices. The original recipe was invented in 1908 by (John) Noel Nichols.

Vimto has also been made into a sweet and an ice lolly. It is available both as ‘packaged goods’—i.e., in cans and bottles via retail outlets—or as a dispensed soft drink—i.e., a draught drink in pubs, clubs and restaurants.
