It’s been a year of what can only be described as the most unusual month on record, and Hendrick’s Gin wants to share in its own brand of unusual with Hendrick’s Week of Wonders. 

To kick off the week, Hendrick’s Gin will attempt to complete a feat that has never been seen in Australia, launching the Most Unusual Balloon Flight—a circus of large hot air balloons which will fly together and circle Sydney, requiring careful poise, resilience, choreography—and unique weather patterns.

Although for the balloons to take flight, it will need to be clear skies, so you can also look up and see the mighty balloon. Take a snap of the balloon for a free Hendrick’s Gin and Tonic at participating venues across the city and Parramatta. These include Potts Point Hotel, Frisco Hotel, The Tilbury, Hotel Palisade, Glenmore Hotel, Orient Hotel, Nick & Nora’s and Heritage Lounge

The balloon flight path will see it make its way across Sydney, taking off from the heart of the iconic city, Parramatta.

Should Hendrick’s Gin achieve its unique feat, the Most Unusual Balloon Flight will soar 1,300 cucumbers high in the sky which is higher than the city’s tallest building, Crown Sydney—enabling all Sydneysiders to stop, seek and snap this most ambitious event.  

As part of the Week of Wonder, those who snooze and miss out on the Most Unusual Balloon Flight, can still relinquish their boredom and enlighten their happy hour with a free tipple at participating bars. 

From Wednesday, 17 to Saturday, 20 March between 4 pm to 7 pm, peculiar penny-farthings will roam the Sydney CBD to bring an afternoon delight to the masses. Sydneysiders can collect a cucumber from curious Victoriana characters frolicking the streets and swap Hendrick’s beloved green garnish, for a complimentary cocktail at participating venues including PS40 and The Barbershop

Capping off the Week of Wonder will be Hendrick’s Peculiar Gin Garden situated at Campbells Cove, The Rocks, which will offer free cucumber sandwiches and gin and tonic’s from 2 pm to 8 pm, Thursday to Saturday.
