will give it a try!
Much nicer than LIDL's version, which I had the misfortune of buying the other week. It's absolutely foul. I prefer this to the original PIMM'S.
Always £5.99 and I'd suggest it's nicer than the original!

Hot.
They now do a strawberry version, spotted last week in Dover aldi. Have to admit having it side by side against pimms it's a poor competitor, but isn't bad enough to not drink. I think the key is what you mix it with which makes these taste so nice. Would be interested to try the strawberry version though as my pimms one is almost out!

The strawberry 1 is minging....I actually took it back for a refund, disgusting chemical type taste
Just for the record---- tastes nothing like original pimms. If you like the cheaper version, fine but if you're expecting the same thing you will be very disappointed. Whatever floats your boat!

Been this price for at least 3 years. Lidls one is ok but this ones nicer.
In a proper Pimms style punch you won't tell the difference to be honest with all the lemonade and fruit.

It's not even close to the real thing, I bought for my wife and after trying it she poored it down the sink.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll steer clear then haha. I usually put a strawberry daiquiri ice cocktail in my pimms for the ice and extra flavour. More alcohol content though so I can only manage a few
I don't think it's Aldis own brand. It's nice thou
hmm - not a patch on the real stuff, but with enough lemonade and fruit to disguise the flavour - it'll do..!

​With that logic a bottle of water should be about 50 quid.

I think it was a joke. Quite good really..
A street drinkers favourite. Cheap with a hint of chemical.

I haven't tried the Aldi strawberry version, but having made the mistake of buying strawberry Pimms recently, it sounds like they've accurately copied it.

(I do quite like the Aldi original compared with Pimms original. But with tonic water rather than lemonade. It's a matter of personal taste though.)

Lidl's "Jeeves" is 17.5%; Pimm's is 25%. If the only difference were the alcohol content, that would make a litre of Pimm's £8.30. The other ingredients are apparently not the same, but another difference is that you're not paying for the own-brands to be advertised on TV and everywhere else.
Does it have a name, or does it say “Aldi's version of Pimms" on the bottle?

What size?

Is it really 70cl? I only ask because Lidl's "Jeeves", at the same price, is 1l.

I know, I was being sarcastic.

I just find it odd that mods don't spam RRP deals, or at least change the title.
