Hendrick’s Gin and the giant cucumber

Hendrick’s Gin celebrated the unusual at the Champagne Bar at Sofitel Sydney Darling Harbour on Thursday 21 March 2019.

Hendrick’s Gin and cucumbers make the perfect combination. The gin is actually made by infusing the essence of roses and cucumber and 11 botanicals from the four corners of the world.

It is not surprising then, that Hendrick’s Gin created an inflatable 40-metre-long, 8-metre-high and 25-metre-wide cucumber that would float around Sydney Harbour and promote the brand.

However, at a media event designed to celebrate this giant cucumber, Hendrick’s Gin announced that they have lost the giant cucumber while in transit to Sydney Harbour and whoever finds it gets a lifetime supply of Hendricks Gin and cucumbers.

To assist in the search they launched ‘Cucumber Currency’, a gin exchange platform in which consumers can swap a cucumber for a free gin and tonic on the weekend of the 24th to 25th of March 2019 down at participating venues in Darling Harbour.

Further, the iconic Green Park Hotel (at 360 Victoria Street Darlinghurst) have launched ‘Gin in the Park’ every Thursday, in partnership with Hendrick’s Gin. There will be interactive gin events, from masterclasses of the most educational nature, to oddly immersive experiences involving martinis, blindfolds and other secrets.

However, reports in the media state that the giant cucumber deflated soon after setting sail and sunk in Sydney Harbour.
