UAE Cucumber Day is Back! Exchange a Curious Cucumber for a Fabulous Beverage on the 13th October

Hendrick’s, also known as @thecuriouscucumber paints the town green this fall in honour of the UAE’s fifth official Cucumber Day. The extraordinary brand is currently celebrating the humble fruit across 36 venues in Dubai and Abu Dhabi creating a splendid medley of premium gin cocktails, all available at just AED 40 per drink. Cucumber enthusiasts can visit various participating venues at any time during the festival to delight in the peculiar libations, throughout the month of October. 

In addition, Hendrick’s has collaborated with all partner venues for an exclusive one-day exchange extravaganza on 13th October 2021, inviting all for a quirky complimentary drink when presenting a curious cucumber companion. On the day, the brand will also be hosting a Curious Carnival at Dubai hotspot, Bla Bla, where a delightfully bewildering day of merriment await. 

Embrace the unusual with bespoke gin-mixed beverage menus at every destination and fulfil all the tantalising cravings. Guests can revel in the aromatic flavours of fascinatingly bizarre drinks such as the Floral Spritz, Spiced Cucumber Iced Tea, The Hendrick’s GNT, Pinky, and many more unusual usuals.  

The decades-old gin brand calls out to all of the ordinary – and unordinary – individuals to join the festivities by bearing a curious mind and a drink in hand.
