Gin-Branded Cucumber Restoration

Gin-Branded Cucumber Restoration

Hendrick’s Gin, the gin famously infused with rose and cucumber, recently announced a new initiative that aims to bring some of the rarest and most peculiar cucumbers from around the globe back from the brink of extinction.

Several rare cucumbers native to far-flung places, from vast African plains to mist-shrouded foothills of Asia, have been identified by Hendrick’s Master Distiller, Ms. Lesley Gracie, and Professor Lenore Newman, one of North America’s foremost experts in agriculture. In partnership with The Chef’s Garden and under the guidance of the James Beard award winner, Farmer Lee Jones, these uncommon cucumbers have been secretly planted, tediously cared for, curiously studied, and flourishing. Some notable cucumbers cultivated include the African Horned, the Hmong Red, the Muromsky, and the Cucamelon — to name a few.

“As someone who has devoted my career to the discovery and preservation of rare fruits and vegetables, I can say with conviction that what Hendrick’s has done for these cucumbers is a tremendous scientific accomplishment,” said Newman, PhD & Director of the Food and Agriculture Institute at the University of the Fraser Valley.Hendrick’s Gin, the gin famously infused with rose and cucumber, recently announced a new initiative that aims to bring some of the rarest and most peculiar cucumbers from around the globe back from the brink of extinction.
