For World Cucumber Day 2021, Hendrick’s Gin wants you to celebrate the humble vegetable in all its garnishable glory.
14 June is World Cucumber Day, but we don’t quite expect anyone to know that fact. Indeed we wouldn’t quite know such a day existed if Hendrick’s Gin hadn’t adopted that date as its own back in 2016 and proceeded to remind us of the fact every year since. But that’s no real surprise – Hendrick’s Gin has always held the humble cucumber in high regard; after all the cucumber is one of the key botanicals used it the making of Hendrick’s Gin.
In previous years Hendrick’s Gin celebrated World Cucumber Day in style with special cocktails across different bars in town; in these pandemic days the celebrations are rightfully a lot more muted. Instead this year Hendrick’s Gin is inviting all cocktail lovers to commemorate the fruit in all its glory, but particularly as an important garnish as you make your own cocktails at home. And since social management measures during this period dictate that we do all of our drinking at home, the leading gin brand is launching a special World Cucumber Day bundle – comprising a 700ml bottle of Hendrick’s Gin, complimentary tonic water, recipe cards on how to create your gin-based cocktails, and maybe even a packet of cucumber seeds for you to express that green thumb of yours – conveniently delivered to your home.
And to garnish your cocktails, such as your gin and tonic, with a creative cucumber flair! Whether you’re carving up a classic curl, cutting up the perfect slices, slicing out an unusual tongue, or digging out elegant cucumber spheres, Hendrick’s Gin is encouraging us all to explore how we can incorporate the cucumber into our favourite gin-based drinks with the help of these special World Cucumber Day Hendrick’s Gin bundles.
“Each year, we dedicate World Cucumber Day to this noble fruit and give it all the attention it deserves. This year, Hendrick’s Gin turns the mighty cucumber into a key to unlock a much-needed escape from the unconventional – whether it’s searching for a special cucumber in a virtual Hendrick’s world or getting creative with cucumber garnishes,” explains Charmaine Thio, Southeast Asia Brand Ambassador for Hendrick’s Gin.
“All that’s left is for curious minds to join us in the wondrous possibilities World Cucumber Day has to offer. I can’t wait to see how gin lovers embrace the unusual in their cucumber-fuelled celebrations this year,” Thio adds.
