PHOENIX - For the last three months, Hendricks Gin has had an ambassador drive a quirky, cucumber-slicing contraption, known as the "Hendrick's Grand Garnisher," across the United States.
The 38-foot machine is scheduled to drive through the Valley Sept. 21-24 with a few stops at cocktail bars. A spokesperson said the vehicle will be seen on freeways and surface streets throughout the day.
