Exchange a cucumber for a G&T with Hendrick’s Gin!

In an act of generosity and cucumber appreciation, Hendrick’s Gin will be accepting cucumbers as payment for their delicious, cucumbery G&Ts! 

World Cumber Day is coming up folks, and as the humble cucumber is not only a notable infusion in Hendricks Gin but also the classic G&T garnish, Hendrick’s Gin have decided to celebrate with an extraordinary gesture.

At selected establishments in Cape Town, Joburg and Durban, you can get yourself a G&T by handing the bartender a cucumber from the 15th of May until the 14th of June. This cucumber currency will only last for the first 30 patrons after 6pm and will be available at Life Grand V & A, HQ/Roast n Co, The One & Only, Cause and Effect and Orphanage.

This ode to the cucumber is a way for Hendrick’s Gin to pay tribute to the flavour that makes it truly unique! Don’t miss the chance to have a bit of fun and enjoy a delectable Hendrick’s G&T for the lowly price of a cucumber.

Visit one of the aforementioned establishments with the cucumber of your choice and leave the unique exchange sipping on a refreshing Rose & Cucumber infused Gin & Tonic.

For a Gin & Tonic you can enjoy at home, here is a cocktail recipe courtesy of Hendrick’s Gin:
