Vow to keep your Head bold and your Cucumber cool this World Cucumber Day

14 June is World Cucumber Day – the day on which we humbly pay homage to the cucumber; that illustrious fruit that for centuries has been celebrated for its exceptional versatility.

This year Hendrick’s Gin, in partnership with three leading venues in South Africa, will be presenting the fruit in a Victorian greenhouse inspired chamber fit for the cucumber’s prestigious position – the Hendrick’s Gin Cucumber Chiller.

From 17 May to 17 June, the three chosen partners will all offer Hendrick’s Gin cocktail specials including a glorious list of Hendrick’s tipples all featuring cucumber that has been housed within the Cucumber Chiller – which will be on display at:

  • Cin Cin Bar in Bedfordview

The English Cucumber is of particular importance to Hendrick’s Gin as it is one of the two infusions that provide the world’s most unusual gin with its unique flavour. Without the English Cucumber, we would not have Hendrick’s Gin, hence the extremity of our adoration.

In celebration of World Cucumber Day on 14 June, Hendrick’s Gin invites all gin connoisseurs to enjoy a gloriously unusual Hendrick’s Gin cocktail join them in exclaiming, “I vow to keep my head bold, and my cucumber cool”.

Facts about the cucumber

Hendrick’s Gin is an unusual, small batch, premium gin from Scotland, infused with English cucumber and Bulgarian rose. In addition to being vital in the creation of the World’s most unusual gin, cucumbers are also said to:

  • ward off hangovers,
  • aid in weight loss,
  • freshen breathe,
  • act as a pest repellent against vipers, mice, wood lice, fish-moths, grubs and slugs,
  • and have been variously recommended as shoe polish, mirror defogger, pen/marker eraser, and sink, drain and stainless steel cleaner.
