If your go-to tipple is a G&T then you’ll be looking forward to Friday, 14 June 2024. It’s World Cucumber Day, during which Hendrick’s Gin will bring back their tradition of the ‘Cucumber Currency Exchange’ allowing patrons to literally trade-in a cucumber for a drink at selected Hendrick’s Gin outlets in Jakarta and other regions in Indonesia.

Infused with thirst quenching cucumber and delicate Bulgarian rose, Hendrick’s Gin’s flavour profile is one that certainly stands out, making for a perfectly refreshing Hendrick’s and Tonic. All good drinkers will know that this particular drink is elevated by a few slices of cucumber, as such, the Scottish-born gin brand encourages fans to come together in paying homage to this humble fruit (yes, fruit) on World Cucumber Day.

Partnering with 150 outlets across Jakarta, Bali, Semarang, Surabaya and Bandung, on World Cucumber Day (14 June 2024), Hendrick’s Gin invites patrons to not only exchange a cucumber for a refreshing Hendrick’s & Tonic, but also enjoy special experiences and pop-ups at selected venues, like the ‘Cucumber Concierge’ and ‘DIY Cocktail Corner’.

Two venues have been chosen as exclusive primary bars and will be bedecked in full Hendrick’s decoration and will offer the unique DIY Cocktail Corners, these venues are: Artesian Bar in Jakarta and Finns Beach Club in Bali. The ‘Cucumber Concierge’ will be available in all 150 outlets, providing cucumbers to those who didn’t bring their own — because everyone needs to celebrate World Cucumber Day!
