On September 26 and 27, Hendrick's Gin hosted “Voyages Into the Unusual” at Chicago's Salvage One. Designed to showcase the gin and its atypical properties—the drink contains a blend of 11 botanical ingredients, for instance, as well as infusions of cucumber and rose petals—the event offered unusual methods of drink service.

When guests approached the curtain, the beastly hand poked through holding a drink. Several cocktails were on offer at the bar, so the particular concoction that each guest received was a surprise.
