The story of the Le Gurk

Le Gurk – The first Cocktail with Cucumber by Axel Klubescheidt.
The idea to create a drink around cucumber was once absolutely innovative in 2009. Cucumber otherwise came into its own as an infusion in Hendrick’s Gin and acted as a decoration in the Moscow Mule. So Le Gurk was the first known drink to offer the cucumber such a showcase.

This „Highball“ impresses with its balanced mix of sweetness and tartness from lemon and elderflower in combination with gin and cucumber. The added apple juice blends in smoothly and provides a refreshing drinking experience.

For many gin collectors this longdrink should also be interesting. Just try different gin styles. Especially floral New Western Style Gin give interesting results.
