Hendrick's Gin Is Flying a Giant Cucumber-Shaped Dirigible Around the Country

Step inside for a fantasy blimp ride

In response to the mundane ease of modern travel, Hendrick's Gin has developed the world's only flying cucumber—a 130-foot dirigible that clips along at the civilized speed of 35 mph, just slow enough not to blow off your steampunk hat.

They are whipping out their big cucumber in 13 cities across the nation and giving a very small number of lucky gin lovers a brief yet glorious ride on the airship. They will be in New York on June 14, just in time to coincide with England's National Cucumber Day.

If you are wondering why a cucumber, Hendrick's Gin is flavored with both cucumber and rose—you know, a phallic symbol and a yonic symbol infused into one gin (it would be a lot harder to make a rose-shaped airship).
