Thoughts from category: our drinkers

think about the future


Sorry about the radio silence. We've just been spending a bit of time thinking about next year. There are lots of smart new ideas and drinks in the pipeline - I'd love to tell you what they are but I fear that I'd be struck down if I gave away our secrets. Anyway, it's nice to have surprises.

One thing I was wondering was what you'd like us to do in 2007. Any recipes you want us to have a go at, or different ingredients we should be using? Any new types of drinks you want us to make? Or any other stuff we should be thinking about?

If you've got a spare moment, don't hesitate to post a comment or two.

true love


We had a Flirting Tent at Fruitstock. Speed dating in the park. I went and spied on it for a bit and even got some video. Very funny watching people being coy.

Anyway, it seem like the Flirting Tent worked. A woman called Jenny mailed us - she's started a blog all about how she met a nice man there. And she's documenting their trials, tribulations and trembles. Like an online soap opera.

Needless to say, we are hooked.

This is how they met, and this is the blog, with many more posts about the burgeoning relationship. Please note, her blog contains some strong language. And kissing.

eco wallet

We'd just like to say thanks to James and Will. They made some wallets out of our cartons. A very smart bit of recycling.

welcome to copenhagen


We just had our first visitor at Viking Towers in Copenhagen. Jonathan (second from left) popped in last week - he's English but has lived in Denmark for a while. Best of all, he's the voice at Copenhagen airport who does the security announcements ("attention all passengers" and all of that), and when he's not doing that, he's a copywriter/PR sort of person.

Thanks for stopping by.

keith's yellow handbag


Those of you who have been following the story of the famous yellow handbag will be happy to hear that it finally sold for £40.03. A nice man called Keith bought it - he says it's for his girlfriend but we think it quite suits him. Maybe he should keep it.

Anyway, Keith's reward for this purchase is that we're inviting him and his "beautiful girlfriend" (Keith's words, not ours - we're not getting fresh or anything) to Fruitstock, as well as sending them some drinks and books and stuff. Sometimes it's worth making that impulse purchase.
