  Vimto - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Vimto is a red soft drink in the United Kingdom.
Vimto was first formulated in 1908 by Manchester herb importer John Noel Nichols, who saw the market opening for soft drinks due to the temperance movement and the passage of the 1908 Licencing Act (which attempted to drastically reduce the number of licenced premises in England and Wales).
Vimto was, somewhat confusingly, also made under license in the United Kingdom by A.G. Barr until recently.

For those who are from the south of England and/or older than eight, the name Vimto might sound rather like an industrial kitchen cleaner, but it is, in fact, a sweet, fruity cordial that's big with the kids and even bigger in the North.
To our uninitiated group, for whom Vimto remains an unknown potion of juices, malt and sodium benzoate, it is something of an acquired taste.
Vimto may even be harking back to its roots: it was created as a healthy, non-alcoholic tonic to give grown-ups "vigour and vim" (hence Vim to-nic).

SALES of soft drink Vimto lost their fizz last year, restricting manufacturer JN Nichols (Vimto) to pre-tax profits of £9.7m, a 1pc increase.
Despite this, the flcurrant cordial variety of Vimto gained a few points of market shares, although sales of the carbonated version were flat.
Mr Nichols said he was confident that the drink would do well in the long-term due to its versatility: "You can drink it either hot or cold." But he said it was too early to tell whether sales would pick up this year as sales are weighted towards the summer months.
