This Online Game Gives You Discounts for Gin!

One of the biggest changes and hurdles I faced when quarantine started was the sudden loss of alcohol in my life. Drinking used to be my ultimate stress reliever, and going to bars was a weekly... okay, fine, nightly, thing. Add the liquor ban to that, and you can just imagine how shocked my body was by the lack of happiness in it.

2020 definitely took my alcohol-loving self by surprise and quickly cast a gloomy shadow for the days ahead. While alcohol is now available in my city, though, happier bar-hopping days are still months away. To spread some good cheer and uplift our spirits, though, Hendrick’s Gin has launched a fun augmented reality game called The Cucumber Horticulturist.

Now available on http://worldcucumberday.asia, you can earn money by cultivating cucumbers from the comfort of your own home. Plant the seeds of delightful peculiarity and the best part? You can get the chance to win discounts off of your next Hendrick’s Gin purchase! 

To win the game, simply grow the cucumber plant by collecting falling water droplets on the screen and avoiding the roses. A stray rose petal can bring the round to a thorny end. With enough water gathered in the pot, you’ll be able to grow a majestic vine with fruits ripe for the picking.

Upon proving your green thumb, you’ll get your cucumber currency over email presented as an e-ticket coupon for 15% off of Hendrick’s Gin capped at a limited number of coupons. The discount can then be redeemed at boozeshop.ph until July 31. You can only win a coupon once, but it's still hella fun!

Why cucumbers? Well, aside from June 14 having been World Cucumber Day, Charmaine Thio, Hendrick’s Southeast Asia ambassador, explains, “There would be no Hendrick’s Gin & Tonic without the cucumber!”

The cucumber plays a pivotal role in giving Hendrick’s Gin its delectably unusual flavor. The spirit’s distillation process includes infusions of rose and cucumber, which yields an extraordinarily inviting gin that is a rare union of lightness and complexity. The cucumber gives ample opportunity for expressive experimentation that pleases both the eye and the palate. Its remarkable versatility is the very reason that Cucumber Day was invented in 2011 by English horticulturists, paving the way for the yearly celebration by Hendrick’s Gin.
