Aldi have got 'Austins' in stock at £4.99 for a 70cl bottle. It is identical to Pimms -- we ran a blind taste test and not a single person could tell the difference.

With Pimms normally coming in at over £10 for the same bottle, this is a great deal. Ideal for parties etc.

Shame the summer has sucked, but still time!

It isn't a deal, it is a budget supermarket product at it's standard price.

I've had this a few times before and its not a bad clone, though I'm no Pimm's expert. It'll probably be even cheaper in a few weeks as its one of Aldi's seasonal products and they usually knock a quid off in autumn to clear remaining stocks.

I agree with you, but you know fine well that if they had dropped the price to 4p a CASE, some would be voting it down just because it's Aldi! :whistling:

i'm a bit aldi fan, but a bigger pimm's fan - your pals must have been well gone when they took the taste test. it's close but definitely inferior.

blindfold me and pour these down me all day long and i'll pick between them 9 times out of 10.

yer pays yer money....

why are you showing a bottle of pimms and not the aldi c=== ?

I don't think it tastes anything like Pimms!
It's just a fruity alcohol mixer from a budget supermarket.

Wel, I'm a big Aldi fan (see my toolkit) and a middling PIMM's fan, and I agree that this is inferior. I know it's not how you drink it, but if you drink them neat, side by side, when you're sober, like I did, to compare them, then you CAN tell the difference. Easily. But if you wanna get mellow amidst fruit and mint and sweet lemonade and at half the price, then this does a good job.

When i went to the Motor Show last month - they were selling pimms at £25 per jug!!!!!!!!! why is it so expensive

Pimms is very nice, but the Austins is fine too.
I have bought it in the past, and ok, you can tell the difference, but so can your wallet considering it is half the price.

I must say I prefer winter Pimms anyway to the Summer version.

I wouldn't buy cheap lemonade to mix it with though. It will make it horrid!
I'm going hot for this one, because Aldi is marvellous!

This is OK, it is fruity with alcohol.

However it isn't the same as Pimms, although reminiscent!

Pimms has however had a varied history - there were previously many versions.

Also like many Vodkas and Gins brands, Pimms used to be stronger in retail formulation, but the strength was reduced to make it cheaper/more profitable.

It is an aspirational brand, drop the price too far and it loses it's appeal, and they make less money even if they are selling shiploads more. Put the price UP, and some people are driven even more to want it.

Oddly, you would think people on this suite would be able to sniff this sort of thing out at a thousand yards, but the threads on this site reveal more suckers than there are on an average street - the writhing, thrusting and grinding over aspirational brands like iPhone, Pimms, Sony, Police sunglasses, several Champagne houses etc. is sometimes entertaining to behold!

Doesn't mean "no-brands" are always best, and in this case they probably aren't, "cheapest" is rarely the best value anyway, but this is an example of accepting a slight inferiority which offers 95% satisfaction, low enough so that barely anyone will notice, but at 50% price - now that sort of thing is incandescently hot to me, but probably is a complete mystery to those driven by the pull of the designer brand!
