Weird Wonderfulness from Hendrick’s Gin

Spread the love

As long as we’re talking about booze today, here’s a strange and marvelous thing:  the people at Hendrick’s Gin are injecting their usual madcap absurdity into London Cocktail Week, an event it pains me greatly to miss.  Anyway, they’ve created an Umbrella Emporium to pay tribute to the cocktail umbrella.  Check this one out–the Mumbrella:  ‘A miniature umbrella made out of iridescent feathers is shielding a chicken egg sat on a nest. Is it waiting for the egg to hatch, or is it just shielding it from the morning rain before it gets eaten for breakfast? Only the Mumbrella knows…’ 

Well. There you have it.

    Why is there a huge cucumber in the last photo?

    Well, Hendrick’s is all about the cucumbers–it’s one of the flavors in their gin.

    OK Ladies, we must ask that you do not consume alcoholic beverages with funny names or funny colors or that come with umbrellas. Violate these rules at your own risk.
