Hendricks Cucumber HourHendrick’s has partnered with bars across Dubai to accept a cucumber in exchange for a G&T on 17 May.

Participating outlets include Bridgewater Tavern, Copper Dog, Siddhartha, Rhodes W1, Geales, the Maine and Iris.

The bars will accept cucumbers of any species as currency in exchange for a Hendrick’s & Tonic during the world’s first dedicated ‘cucumber hour’ – a twist on ‘cocktail hour’.

Duncan McRae, Hendrick’s global ambassador comments, “For many years now Hendrick’s has sought to elevate the many enigmatic qualities of the unassuming cucumber, due to the role it plays in our most unusual gin alongside the Bulgarian rose.”
