World Cucumber Day 2018 | Hendrick's Gin

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.

What is World Cucumber Day?

World Cucumber Day is the one day of the year when the cucumber receives the attention it deserves. On this day we wish to spread love, understanding and appreciation for cucumbers everywhere.

the all IMPORTANT GARNISH

'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'.

Continue thinking along these lines lines and one soon discovers that a HENDRICK’S & TONIC is the equivalent of that same orchestra, now playing a room that takes on its full sensory potential upon the addition of a SLICE OF CUCUMBER
