We’ve had Bitcoin, Litecoin and now, PotCoin. But nothing prepared us for the day a humble green vegetable (fruit?) would be used as currency. And it’s happening tomorrow. In possibly the best way to celebrate World Cucumber Day (which is a completely real thing), Hendrick’s Gin is allowing you to use cucumbers as monetary units in exchange for a Hendrick’s & Tonic.
You read that right. If you’re curious about the relation between the two, it involves the spirit’s unusual distillation process. The infusion of rose and cucumber yields a smooth gin that’s comes out both light and complex. And it’s a no-brainer how many benefits the cucumber brings. Now who said drinking isn’t healthy?
‘Cucumber Hour’ will run from 6 to 11 pm on 14 June at Antidote, Artemis, Aura, Birds Of A Feather, Bitters & Love, Emerald Hill (No.5), Employees Only, Fat Prince, Highball, Horse’s Mouth, Loof, Mitzo, Mona Lounge, Nutmeg & Clove, Oxwell & Co, Potato Head, PS Café Ann Siang, Smoke & Mirrors, Southbridge, Tess Bar, The Mad Men, The White Rabbit and The Wall.
