Pimms No. 1 Cup?

I vaguely remember having this drink during my stay in London. Now I have the opportunity to get a few bottles brought over to me in Cal. My question is,is it as good as I remembered (i.e. worth the hassel)? And two, what are some drinks to make with it?
I think you can find Pimm's #1 in most liquor stores in the U.S., so I'm not sure why it needs to be brought over. There may be other Pimm's formulas that are harder to find here. The classic Pimm's Cup drinks (eg mix with 7-Up, lemon, and a cucumber stick, or just with lemonade) are peerless hot-weather coolers.
It's available at BevMo, and although not entirely authentic, we've found that the Trader Joe's Italian Lemon Soda is a good mixer -- it adds some nice tartness.
