Cucumber currency: 4 Keswick bars invite guests to exchange a cucumber for a G&T!

As the summer unfolds, Lake District Hotels is excited to bring back a beloved tradition that adds a refreshing twist to your day. On Friday 14th June, from 4pm to 5pm, three of our Keswick-based hotels will be celebrating World Cucumber Day with a unique and delightful offer: exchange a fresh cucumber for an ice-cold Hendrick’s Gin and Fever-Tree tonic.

Following the enthusiastic response from last year, this event has become a highly anticipated highlight in Keswick. The excitement was so contagious that local supermarkets ran out of cucumbers! Dani Hope, Director of Lake District Hotels shares her excitement: “We’re thrilled to celebrate World Cucumber Day once again by offering guests the opportunity to indulge in the refreshing combination of Hendrick’s Gin and Fever-Tree tonic. The exchange of a cucumber for a G&T adds a delightful aspect to the festivities, embodying the enjoyment that defines our hospitality here in Keswick.”

The Hendrick’s happy hour will be hosted across three charming venues on Keswick Main Street:

The cucumber holds a special place in the world of Hendrick’s Gin, integral to its unique distillation process. A slice of cucumber brings out the distinct flavour notes of the gin, making it a quintessential element of a Hendrick’s G&T. We can’t think of a better way to celebrate World Cucumber Day!

Craig Moody, North West Business Development Executive at William Grant & Sons UK, expressed his enthusiasm: “This delightful promotion is made possible through a collaborative effort between Lake District Hotels, Hendrick’s Gin, and Fever-Tree. By uniting three iconic brands, we aim to offer our guests a truly enjoyable and light-hearted experience to remember.”

We invite you to join us at your favourite bar, or if you’re up for it, explore all four participating venues within the hour. Come be a part of this fun and refreshing celebration – just don’t forget to bring a cucumber!
