We’ve just had World Gin Day and now we’re moving onto World Cucumber Day to almost complete the G&T (when is world tonic day?). To celebrate the better half of our favourite cocktail, Hendrick’s gin are exchanging cash for cucumbers as it becomes their currency for one special evening.
It might sound a bit bizarre but bear with us, we’re essentially talking a free G&T here… now we’ve got your attention. Everyone knows that cucumber is a key ingredient to a Hendrick’s and tonic and to celebrate their favourite vegetable’s day, they will be giving a free G&T to all fans with a cucumber in hand this Wednesday (14th June). A select number of bars around the UK will be joining in on this from Ealing to Newcastle to Manchester. The most amount of bars that will be hosting this will of course be in London so you’ll have no excuse to not pick up your free Hendrick’s and tonic in the special ‘cucumber hour’ (more like 3 hours, don’t worry!).
Duncan McRae, the Hendrick’s Global Ambassador, speaks highly of the cucumber, “The sensitive green fruit should be held in high esteem as a precious commodity and in observance of World Cucumber Day, we wholeheartedly encourage trading a mighty cucumber in exchange for the most palatable of libations, a Hendrick’s & Tonic.” So if you like your G&T in the right way make sure you head to one of the many bars around the country to exchange your cucumber for the cocktail.
This offer is available at all Young’s, Balls Brothers and Alchemist bars on 14th June from 5pm to 8pm and is limited to one drink per person.
