Hendrick’s Gin is one of those spirits that needs little fanfare. You simply need to drink it and the smooth and crisp taste will make you remember it.

Hendrick’s Gin decided to play off the fact that their gin itself is infused with cucumber by creating “The Hendrick’s Grand Garnisher” to slice cucumbers. Hendrick's Gin Ambassador Mark Stoddard put it best by describing this as “an eye-popping, wondrously strange cucumber slicing device that will travel the U.S. with the sole purpose of offering the most beautifully garnished Hendrick’s Gin cocktails ever to grace a glass.”

“The Hendrick’s Grand Garnisher” can achieve road speeds of up to 25 mph, thanks to a hybrid powertrain combining a large diesel motor and a well-dressed gentleman pedaling a large-wheeled bicycle. The 38-foot-long device relies upon an elaborate system of pneumatic tubing, interlocking gears and rotating blades to slice up to 18 cucumbers per hour. “It’s not the most efficient way to garnish a cocktail,” explained Stoddard, “but we do believe it is the most spectacular.”

The Hendrick’s Grand Garnisher kicked things off in New York City on June 14th, World Cucumber Day. From their it ventured westward from city to city, pausing in select locations to offer citizens strikingly perfect garnishes, cucumber delights and other oddly refreshing activities. The Garnisher finished off the cross-country trip with a visit to the Hollywood Roosevelt where guests were treated to not only unique cocktails, but an equally unique evening. Everyone who has had the chance to experience “The Hendrick’s Grand Garnisher” agrees that you will never look at a cucumber the same way again.

About Hendrick’s Gin

Every drop of Hendrick’s Gin is created by a single stillman with the help of a lone apprentice working on two utterly dissimilar types of stills (a long-necked Carter-Head and plump-bellied Pot Still). Hendrick’s is infused with Rose and Cucumber and instilled with a supporting cast of 11 botanicals. It is overseen by its creator, Master Distiller, Lesley Gracie, who has always been consummately peculiar. Hendrick’s gained widespread acclaim and received numerous awards, including a Double Gold medal in the 2014 Fifty Best Gin Awards; ‘Gin of the Year’ at the Food and Wine Magazine Awards and voted ‘World’s Best Gin’ by the Wall Street Journal. Hendrick’s Gin has an ABV of 44%. Please enjoy the unusual responsibly. For further information, visit www.hendricksgin.com.
