Have you in your wildest dreams considered sipping Hendrick’s on a flying cucumber…well now you can literally take flight aboard Hendricks Air courtesy of Hendricks Gin. This new ambitious venture commenced in April 2015 with the company’s flagship air craft: a massive dirigible named The Flying Cucumber. Commenting on the new venture Hendrick’s National Brand Ambassador stated, “we have been continually surprised by the odd popularity of our unusual cucumber-infused gin, so taking on the challenge of air travel seemed like the next logical step.” In contrast to the route patterns of conventional airlines, all Hendrick’s Air flights will depart and arrive from the same point, flying in excess of 500 miles per hour equipped with on-board conveniences such as in-flight TV and noise-canceling headphones. The 130-foot long, 44-foot tall Flying Cucumber is adorned with a giant “eye in the sky” which is consistent with the brand’s whimsical brand personality. The carrier’s cucumber motif and insistence on dirigible flight were inspired by the gin’s most prominent note of flavor – namely its infusion of cucumber essence. The Flying Cucumber launched with coast-to-coast expeditions beginning in April and culminating in August, granting flights to consumers and brand enthusiasts in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, Dallas, South Florida, New Jersey, New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Ann Arbor, Indianapolis, and Chicago

About Hendrick’s Gin
HENDRICK’S is a super premium gin, made with a number of unusual twists. To deliver a most curious and delightfully unique flavor, Hendrick’s combines a distinct blend of eleven botanicals, as well as the signature infusions of cucumber and rose petals, producing a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully unique aroma. Hand crafted in Scotland in miniscule batches by William Grant & Sons, Hendrick’s is the only gin that uses a marriage of spirits from both a Carter-Head and Copper Pot Still, a combination that produces a divinely smooth gin that has both the required character and balance of subtle flavors. Since Hendrick’s was first introduced to America nearly 15 years ago, it has 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% and an SRP of $34.99. Please enjoy the unusual responsibly. For further information, visit www.hendricksgin.com.
