Celebrate World Cucumber Day - June 14th 2019 Celebrate World Cucumber Day - June 14th 2019

Join us in Jubilant Celebration of World Cucumber Day

Hendrick’s Gin has always held the cucumber in the highest regard.  The spirit’s unusual distillation process includes an infusion of rose and cucumber, which yields an extraordinarily smooth gin that is a rare union of lightness and complexity.  Not only that, but 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 Hendrick’s its pleasingly unusual flavour. 

Cucumber Day was invented by cucumber growers, in England in 2011, to extol the virtues of the gallant cucumber. For several years now we celebrate this day to hero this remarkable fruit. We wish to spread love, understanding and appreciation for cucumbers everywhere and every year invite all those with a curious mind to celebrate World Cucumber Day on June 14 to cultivate and embrace their very own unusual side.

A Sumptuous Summer Cocktail in Honour of the Noble Cucumber

World Cucumber Day takes place in the Summer, so Hendrick’s Cucumber Lemonade — an unusually seasonal concoction — is just the thing. You cannot control the behaviour of wasps at a picnic; you can however ensure you have a summer drink as azure in flavour as the summer evening is long. Cucumber Lemonade brims with naughty thoughts for summers — and cucumber days and nights — yet to be.

'GARNISH' comes from garnish, an old French term meaning 'to equip', which itself comes from an exceedingly old Germanic word, warnjan, associated with the concept of 'being cautious or warned'.
