Hendrick’s Gin Presents Camp Cucumber Bali 2021


In April 2021, Hendrick’s Gin invited a select group of bartenders from Bali to take a break from their regular routines and to step into the unconventional world of Hendrick’s at Camp Cucumber, a 2 days glamping experience at Lake Batur. Various curious cucumber activities awaited the bartenders at Camp Cucumber starting off with an educational “Introduction to Cucumber Cultivation” session hosted by an expert cucumber farmer extraordinaire. Campers then got to try their hand at cucumber crafting and what marvelous creations they crafted! Other activities included a kite flying competition, a Hendrick’s & Tonic relay race, a movie under the moonlight, a beautiful bonfire ritual and a glorious assortment of convivial games. Camp Cucumber drew to a close with a peculiar picnic featuring a delightful spread of picnic fare coupled with delicious Hendrick’s cocktails and a prize presentation to celebrate the grand cucumber champions of Camp Cucumber Bali 2021. Camp Cucumber was a splendid start to the week and the bartenders without a doubt left Camp Cucumber with their spirits raised and refreshed.


Defined as a ‘Distilled Gin’ by the European Union, super-premium HENDRICK’S is made with a number of unusual twists to deliver a most curious arrangement:
• Only HENDRICK’S is made with infusions of Cucumber and Rose petal essences. This produces a wonderfully refreshing gin with a delightfully floral aroma.
• Unlike ordinary gins, HENDRICK’S is distilled in Scotland in the tiny seaside village of Girvan, Ayrshire by the sixth generation of a family-owned company. This allows HENDRICK’S to draw upon centuries of distilling expertise and plentiful pure soft water, which they source from the local Penwhapple reservoir.
• HENDRICK’S is alone in using a marriage of spirits from both a Carter-Head and a Bennett Still (a type of copper pot still). By boiling the botanicals, the Bennett Still produces a spirit with great depth of flavour. Conversely, the Carter-Head Still gently bathes the botanicals in vapour, producing a supremely smooth spirit with subtle flavour characteristics. Combining the spirits from the two stills creates a divinely smooth gin that has both the required character and balance of subtle flavours.
• HENDRICK’S values the sublimely abnormal quality of its ingredients, sourcing the most delightful and least ordinary palette of 11 botanicals from flowers, roots, fruits and seeds from the four corners of the World.
• HENDRICK’S is handcrafted in miniscule batches of only 450 litres at a time – the smaller the batch, the more control can be exerted by Lesley Gracie, the master distiller, and Alan Rimmer, the stillman.
