Need advice on Lemonade in London

I'm a recent arrival in London and am hosting a party soon that will involve Pimms cups.
I'm sorted on sourcing good fruit and herbs, but as the only other ingredient besides Pimms is lemonade, I don't want to let my cocktails down with Sprite.
I'm rather hoping someone might be able to point me in the direction of a great quality lemonade to complete my cups.
Pimms needs the clear carbonated stuff skutty, not the lovely real thing, which would taste very odd in Pimms, I think.
R. Whites has always been standard issue in the UK, but I doubt if anyone could tell if supermarket own brand was used. FWIW for Pimms I cut my lemonade with about 25% tonic water to pull back the sweetness a little.
For Pimms you just need bog standard supermarket lemonade and it should be fizzy. Go to Waitrose if you want to be posh.
