CUCUMBERS AS CURRENCY

Forget cash and cards: exchange a cucumber for a delectable Hendrick's & Tonic

In a move that will cause consternation in financial markets worldwide, on Wednesday 14th June, we will recognise the true value of the cucumber by transforming the humble green fruit into exchangeable monetary units in celebration of World Cucumber Day.

We have partnered with a following bars across the UK to facilitate the unorthodox transaction. The bars will accept bona fide cucumbers of any species as currency – or "bar tender" – in exchange for a refreshing Hendrick's & Tonic during the world's first dedicated 'Cucumber Hour'.

Participating locations

Timings of the ‘Cucumber Hour’ may vary dependent on location. Please see specific venue’s website to obtain a phone number and call ahead to avoid disappointment.
