I knew you were middle class, but this is just ridiculous!
What next? Looking for a wooden bowl that you can eat salad from?

I already have that. With wooden spoons. I also make my own dressing.

I am more middle class than any of you.

Good to see irony is alive and well in the Nankan area. :lol:

I'm also secretly gay.

Back on topic - surely there's an expert on Taiwan who knows where to buy Pimm's? Lily?

In that case I'm going to get in touch with Pimm's with a view to becoming their Taiwanese distributor. Seriously, I reckon the Taiwanese would go mental for that stuff. It's just their cup of tea, as it were.

If you can't find Pimm's, just substitute PiPaGao for it. They're pretty much the same. :neutral:

I know that Pimm's used to be available in Taiwan... in the early 90s. Lots of other things, like Noilly Prat vermouth, sambuca and Angostura Bitters, were readily available back then.

Have you tried Drinks? (I don't remember seeing it there, but it's been a while, so maybe.) Also, Breeze Super is often a good bet for more obscure liquors.

Cheers, Chris. I've tried Drinks, but not the other place. I'll give it a try. It's got to be available somewhere, it's not like we're stuck in the wilds of Afghanistan.
