Hendrick’s Gin Ministry of Marginally Superior Transport


– Hendrick’s Ministry of Marginally Superior Transport launches an unusual transport service to help the people of Edinburgh escape their travel gloom –

Inscribe Monday 8th August in your diary – the date Hendrick’s Gin will unveil the answer to Edinburgh’s travel woes in the form of a peculiar double-decker bus cunningly disguised as a giant cucumber.

And, of course bartenders will be on the bus to pour the perfect Hendrick’s Gin & Tonic with a slice of cucumber, serve cocktails and offer cucumber macaroons.

Hendrick’s Extraordinary Roving Bus for Exceptionally Refined Travel (H.E.R.B.E.R.T.) will be provided by Hendrick’s Ministry of Marginally Superior Transport; a bureau working endlessly to help remedy the ills associated with terrible etiquette across Edinburgh’s transport system.

The bus will provide much needed respite to Edinburgh’s travelers between 8th and 14th August, between the hours of 16.00 and 21.00*. Tickets for the curiously unconventional service are free, but subject to a £2.50 admin fee, and passengers can board at Hendrick’s stop on Queen Street, EH2 1JE.

Passengers can keep up to date with the Ministry’s quest for slightly better transport via the Hendrick’s UK Facebook and Twitter. Passengers are invited to share their travel woes (or triumphs) with a tweet to @HendricksGinUK using #HendricksMinistry. The best (or in some cases the worst) will receive a delightfully different Hendrick’s gift or personalised message from the Ministry.
