All Hail The Humble Cucumber! Exchange One Cucumber For A Hendrick’s & Tonic This World Cucumber Day

Who knew that the unassuming cucumber actually has its own day? While most of us will just blithely ignore this green fruit’s special day, Hendrick’s Gin decided to add a whole lot of value to the cucumber on June 14, World Cucumber Day.

Here’s how it goes. This Thursday, June 14, bring a cucumber of any species to any one of Hendrick’s Gin’s participating bars in Manila, namely, 12/10, 59C, ABV, Curator, Nokal, Oto, RM16, Run Rabbit Run, Shrine of Satisfaction, and WokBy. Hand your cucumber over to the bartender as “bar tender” and in exchange, get one refreshing Hendrick’s & Tonic during “Cucumber Hour,” 6 to 11 pm.


Why did Hendrick’s decide to celebrate the cucumber? Duncan McRae, Hendrick’s Global Ambassador, comments, “There is simply no better way to cap off a Hendrick’s cocktail than with a little green garnish cut from the same fruit that gives the gin its delightfully unusual flavor. Whether it’s a classic slice, peculiar spears, a bold wedge or an unusual tongue, the cucumber gives ample opportunity for expressive experimentation in shape and size that is sure to please the eye as well as the palate. We welcome those with a shared disposition to join us in the wondrous possibilities World Cucumber Day has to offer. Unfortunately, counterfeit cucumbers will not be accepted.”
