Make sure you have a cucumber in your pocket this Friday, because you’ll be able exchange it for a gin and tonic cocktail!
As part of its annual World Cucumber Day celebrations on June 14, Hendrick’s Gin has partnered with 20 bars across Klang Valley to offer free Hendrick’s Gin and tonic cocktails to customers who bring their own cucumbers to the outlets.
Yes, you read that right – just bring a cucumber (any species is fine) to any of the 20 outlets within the designated ‘Cucumber Hour’ to redeem your drink. Only one drink per person can be redeemed at each bar though (Hey, the bars can’t pay their bills with cucumbers).
In case you’re wondering why Hendrick’s is doing this, it’s because the gin itself is uniquely infused with rose and cucumber, and best served with a slice of cucumber. Therefore, it makes sense that the gin maker holds the humble cucumber in the highest regard, and what better way to rejoice in its wonder than by having its own celebration day?
The participating bars for World Cucumber Day cucumber swap are:
– Astor Bar @ St Regis KL
– Bar Trigona @ Four Seasons Hotel
– Beta KL
– Los Sombreros
– Mrs Jones’ Parlour
– Omakase + Appreciate
– Pawn Room
– Suzie Wong
– Saro Lounge
– The Vault
– Three X Co
– Woobar @ W Hotel
The ‘Cucumber Hour’ offer will run from 7 to 10pm on 14 June for most of the bars mentioned above, except for Lavo (7-10.30pm), Knowhere (8-10pm) and Soma (8 to 11pm).
