With the rollout of Apple’s new iOS 10.2 update, the cucumber emoji is finally here!
After much patience and anticipation, Hendrick’s Gin is excited to celebrate the cucumber emoticon’s rightful presence in everyday texting language. Finally, the all-powerful cucumber can stand next to some of the iconic emojis that permanently reside in our pop culture and Gen Z vernacular.
As you may know, Hendrick’s is curiously infused with cucumber—it is the backbone of this most unusual gin and our garnish of choice in cocktail recipes.
Now you can raise a virtual and IRL glass to celebrate the digitalized version of the beloved cucumber — and what luck that this news comes right in time for the holidays, with a digital sliced cucumber to help garnish our bubbly Cucumber 75 sparkling cocktail!
