Hendrick’s Gin saves the Rarest Cucumbers

Hendrick’s, The Gin Famously Infused with Rose and Cucumber, has Scoured the Planet to Find and Cultivate Some of the World’s Most Unusual Cucumbers

Hendrick’s, the world’s most unusual gin, has brought some of the rarest and peculiar cucumbers from around the globe back from the brink of extinction and made them available for the masses. An unprecedented delight to the senses, this noble endeavor will invite lovers of food and drink to satisfy their curiosity and taste a bounty of otherworldly cucumbers via the exclusive Hendrick’s Curious Cucumber Collection from Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef’s Garden, available now for pre-order delivery nationwide at Farmerjonesfarm.com

Hendrick’s Gin and cucumbers have always been and will always be inextricably bound. Since its inception, Hendrick’s has championed all that is curious, unexpected and unique. In fact, the gin began as a rarity itself due to its unusual but delightful infusions of rose, and of course, cucumber. “You could say I have a healthy obsession with cucumbers, they truly are quite fascinating fruits,” said Hendrick’s Master Distiller Ms. Lesley Gracie. “When we were first developing Hendrick’s, experimenting with cucumbers and figuring out how to get that curious cooling sensation into a gin was a big moment in
my career. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing so many diverse and wonderful varieties of cucumber in different parts of the world. The chance to cultivate some of the more peculiar styles on the brink of extinction has been an extremely fun and welcomed challenge.”

Ms. Lesley Gracie worked with Professor Lenore Newman, one of North America’s foremost experts in agriculture, to identify multiple varieties of rare cucumber species scattered across the globe, from the vast African plains to the mist-shrouded foothills of Asia. Through no small effort on the part of Hendrick’s Gin and renowned farm partners, The Chefs Garden (Huron, OH) and MX Morningstar Farm (Hudson, NY), these glorious fruits have been saved from extinction and are ready to share with the world in their freshest, most imbebible forms. “As someone who has devoted my career to the discovery and preservation of rare fruits and vegetables, I can say with conviction that what Hendrick’s has done for these cucumbers is a tremendous scientific accomplishment,” said Newman, PhD & Director of the Food and Agriculture Institute at the University of the Fraser Valley. The author of three books on food, Lenore advises the British Columbia government on
agricultural policy and the impact of climate change on food security. “These seeds represent a microscopic amount of the global cucumber population and without this project, they remained in danger. It’s remarkable to see them restored to such great scale, and it’s such a joy for people to now be able to taste these marvelous fruits.”

The various seeds were sourced from across the globe after months of academic research and meticulously
cultivated in greenhouses across North America and Europe.

The Six Rare Cucumbers

  • The highly curious Cucamelon (Melothria scabra) is cultivated as a minor crop in Mexico and
    Central America, and very rarely experienced elsewhere. Flavors are similar to a cucumber, yet
    sweeter and citrus-like, with an uncanny exterior resemblance to a mini-watermelon.
  • Particularly unusual in appearance donning a peculiar mix of bright orange & green with
    horn-like spikes, the African Horned (Cucumis metuliferus) is a close relative of our beloved
    cucumber that primarily grows wild and in local gardens across southern Africa, carrying
    delightful notes of melon, kiwi, banana and citrus.
  • The Hmong Red (Cucumis sativus) is grown by the Hmong people in intimate gardens
    adorning the mountains of Northern Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Myanmar, where upon
    maturation, this miraculous fruit transitions in color from a pale green to a golden orange, and
    offers a tart flavor.
  • The Aonaga Jibai (Cucumis sativus), a treasured family gem from the island of Kyushu, Japan,
    can only be found in the quaint town of Beppu, where it’s known for its unusually long and
    narrow shape and splendidly sweet taste.
  • Only found tucked away in the country of Bhutan, the Gagon Cucumber (Cucumis sativus) is
    quite distinct – as it matures, it shifts from containing the characteristics of a common cucumber
    to marvelous honeydew.
  • Generally unknown outside of Eastern Europe, the ancient Muromsky Cucumber (Cucumis
    sativus) is oddly covered in black spikes and prized for its pleasant scent, crunchy texture, and
    punchy flavor.

Thousands of these peculiar cucumbers have been cultivated globally and are available in the United States via an exclusive Curious Cucumber Collection from Farmer Jones Farm at The Chef’s Garden. With a plethora of culinary and cocktail uses, these atypical yet delicious cucumbers come in a farm-fresh variety pack for $48, with no one box the same based on harvest at the time of order.

Among the first to experiment with these extraordinary fruits, Hendrick’s National Ambassador, Vance Henderson, tasted and tested to his delight in order to create a cocktail experience unlike any on earth. “Experimenting with these rare cucumbers was not only a pleasure, but an exploration in itself and a welcomed creative challenge,” says Henderson. “One of our favorite creations, The Cutecumber Lemonade, is an ode to our popular Hendrick’s Cucumber Lemonade with one-of-a-kind notes of citrus from the Cucamelon that beautifully compliment our delicious and refreshing gin and mixes well with the unusual.”

The Cutecumber Lemonade – Ingredients

  • 1.5 parts Hendrick’s Gin
  • .75 part Fresh Cucamelon Juice, Strained
  • .75 part Fresh Lemon Juice
  • .75 part Simple Syrup
  • Top with Premium Soda Water
  • 1 Cucamelon and 1 Lemon Wheel to Garnish

Method: Combine all ingredients in a highball glass filled with cubed ice and lightly stir. Garnish with 1 whole Cucamelon speared between 1 lemon wheel and serve.

ABOUT MS. LESLEY GRACIE

Ms. Lesley Gracie, who heralds from Yorkshire, is the Master Distiller at Hendrick’s Gin. With a background in chemistry, Lesley’s genius lies in her fascination with flavors and how they work together. She visualizes flavors as shapes and strikes to create a round, balanced flavor in all of her elixirs. In 1999, Ms. Gracie was approached by the great grandson of William Grant, Charles Gordon, to create an ‘ultra-premium’ gin which was to become Hendrick’s. She was appointed as the Master Distiller and went on to spearhead the development of this most unusual gin and is responsible for the creation of all of
Hendrick’s liquid innovations.

Over the past two decades, Gracie has been responsible for countless pioneering Hendrick’s releases and has amassed an array of botanicals, distillates, and experimental liquids, which are housed in a locked cabinet in her laboratory, the Cabinet of Curiosities at the Hendrick’s Gin Palace. Ms Lesley Gracie has a strong history of pushing boundaries from her experiments and venturing far and wide in search of new flavors – even as far as the Venezuelan rainforest. Lesley is enchanted by animals and keeps two tortoises and loves to walk her dog, Jock. She also has a penchant for salmon fishing and exploring the rugged Scottish countryside in her motorhome, affectionately named Ted.

Scholarships via 360 magazine by 360 Magazine

Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Foundation Awards $1 Million to 100 Black College students

Travis Scott’s Waymon Webster Scholarships, Now in Their Second Year, Ensures Black Students Experiencing Last-Minute Financial Adversity Graduated From College – A Foundational Component of Scott’s Project HEAL Effort, Announced Earlier This Year.

Family Effort: Scholarship is Named for Travis Scott’s Grandfather, an HBCU Educator, and Spearheaded by Scott’s Sister, Jordan Webster – Who Graduated From Howard University Herself This Past Week.

Travis Scott’s Cactus Jack Foundation announced that it has awarded $1 million in scholarships for students at Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to 100 members of the graduating class of 2022. With Scott’s support, the Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund granted $10,000 scholarships to seniors who have reached academic excellence (averaging 3.5 or higher GPA) but have faced the all-too-common last-minute challenge of financial adversity in the second semester of their senior year. The scholarships will bring 100 students over the finish line, diploma in hand. This is the second year that Scott has supported HBCUs and represents a tenfold increase.  

The scholarship is named after Waymon Webster to honor his lifetime of dedication to academic excellence for Black students. This year’s recipients include graduating seniors from 38 HBCUs, including Alabama A&M University, Central State University, Florida A&M University, Jackson State University, Morehouse College, Texas Southern University, Grambling State University, Xavier University of Louisiana, and Prairie View A&M University – Scott’s grandfather’s alma mater where he also served as an educator. Standout recipients include:

  1. Nisha Encarnacion, a graduate from Florida A&M University from St. Croix, US Virgin Islands, received a degree in Pharmacy. While supporting her mother and caring for her daughter throughout college, Nisha paid her own way to achieve her dream. View her thank you here.
  2. Chisom Okwor, a computer science graduate from Fisk University passionate about the technology industry, specifically the inclusive and improvement of representation in the tech space. Chisom’s goal is to use technology to transform developing countries in Africa. View her thank you here.
  3. Jordan Massey, a mass communications graduate with a concentration in broadcast journalism from North Carolina Central University, has incurred personal debt to achieve his goal of graduating college and entering the field of communications. View his thank you here.

Travis Scott said: “Excellence abounds in every Black household, but too often opportunity does not – and Black students are left behind or counted out. So that’s what my family and I set out to change. We congratulate all 100 scholarship recipients this year. I know we will see great things from them – and we are already looking forward to increasing our work next year.” 

Jordan Webster, Project Manager for the Cactus Jack Foundation’s Waymon Webster Scholarship Fund, a recent Howard University graduate, and sister to Travis Scott, said: “Last week, I received my own diploma from Howard University. I know personally how deeply important my grandfather’s academic legacy at HBCUs is to my entire family – to Travis, as well as my twin brother Josh who is at Prairie View A&M University – and now, to 100 people that Travis has been able to help out at a tough time. It means the world to me to be able to work with my brother as he creates hope and makes a real difference for our peers and their families.” 

Marc Morial, President and CEO of the National Urban League, said: “Black students are less than half as likely to graduate from college as white students, and financial pressure is the primary reason. We applaud Travis Scott and the Cactus Jack Foundation for investing in the next generation and congratulate the 100 Waymon Webster Scholarship recipients on their graduation.”

Daniel Moss, Executive Director of the HBCU Foundation, said: “In a warm and tremendously thoughtful gesture, Mr. Scott has made a lifelong impact on the 100 Waymon Webster Scholarship recipients. To have now eased, even slightly, the financial burden on these deserving HBCU graduates, Mr. Scott has set into motion a kind of investment that will pay infinite dividends into our communities for decades to come.”
