TORONTO, July 10, 2019 /CNW/ - Hendrick's Gin will elevate the glorious bursts of brilliance of the Honda Celebration of Light, as it awes audiences by debuting A.W.E.V.A.N.A.I.R., its 65-foot hot air balloon from its peculiar family of elevating, voyaging, towering, ascending mobiles!

A.W.E.V.A.N.A.I.R. (affectionately known by the curious crowd as the Amazing, Whimsical, Enchanting, Voyaging, Astounding, Nocturnal, Ascending, Interstellar, Roamer) is a towering hot air balloon adorned in cucumbers and roses, that will gather groups of four to curiously cruise at an altitude of 44 ¼ cucumbers into the skies of Vancouver.

Voyaging above the steps of the iconic Vancouver Art Gallery, one of North America's most respected and innovative visual arts institutions, A.W.E.V.A.N.A.I.R.'s inaugural flight marks the first time the Honda Celebration of Light extends its festivities from English Bay to the streets of Downtown Vancouver.

"Hendrick's is a gin that cultivates the unusual," comments Jessica Mieczkowska, Canadian Brand Manager, Hendrick's Gin. "Debuting A.W.E.V.A.N.A.I.R. at the inaugural Honda Celebration of Light Downtown, allows the over 1.3 million attendees of the festival, a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to delight in the whimsical world of Hendrick's Gin."

For those Golden Ticket guests waiting forbearingly to fly, the Hendrick's Gin Air Departure Lounge shall set down on the steps of the grand gallery, curiously carrying guests into the Portal of Peculiarity where they shall imbibe in libations that include the world's smallest Hendrick's teacup gin and tonics, garnished ever so delicately with the world's most curiously odd cucumbers.

The magical world of whimsy that is Hendrick's Gin shall not conclude there! Renowned Intuitive Specialist Terri-Lynn Decker travels from the coasts of the East to give Golden Ticket guests the opportunity to glimpse into their past, present and future.

As guests delight in the spectacular sight of a wall adorned with one of the most delectable Hendrick's Gin botanicals, the rose, sonnets of sound will enchant them as Theadora Feu Follet plays the Theremin, a most mysterious musical mechanism that produces sound without the touch of even a finger.

For the first-time in Vancouver history, Golden Ticket guests will be amazed by the wondrous auditory pleasure of the world's only C.O.R.G.A.N. (Cucumber Organ of Remarkably Glorious Auditory Nirvana), a one-of-a-kind musical instrument which consists of 49 real, whole cucumber keys that create a cucumberous musical tone when touched.
