Welcome to vimto international

Vimto is a soft drink with an indescribable flavour that brings unique refreshment to people around the world. It was invented in 1908 by John Noel Nichols in Manchester, England. Created as a healthy pick-me-up tonic it comprised a blend of fruits, herbs and spices to give ‘vim’ and ‘vigour’ to its consumers. Originally called Vimtonic, and now known as Vimto, its recipe still remains a secret today.

Vimto is part of the Nichols plc portfolio, which also includes our other brands such as Starslush, along with licensed brands including Sunkist, ICEE and SLUSH PUPPiE.

Served in 60 Countries

Created in Manchester, UK, back in 1908, Vimto is now enjoyed all around the world, with new markets constantly discovering its unique taste. Vimto can be served as a cordial, carbonated or still beverage, packaged in glass bottles, cans, PET, sports bottles and tetras.
