Purple Ronnie turns 25 on the beeb

Purple Ronnie, the nation's favourite romantic rhyming stick man, turns 25 this year - and so we were delighted to arrange for his creator, Giles Andreae, to appear on BBC Breakfast this week.

As well as talking about Purple Ronnie's history over the past quarter of a century, Giles created a poem to give the British Women's Football team some extra support and penned a few odes to presenters Charlie Stayt and Susanna Reid.

We hear that 200 people signed up to follow @iampurpleronnie on Twitter within minutes of Giles's interview. What a charismatic chap he is!

Fridays are for cocktails!

After a busy week in the office the team at GG like nothing better than to start the weekend in style with a delicious Buffalo Trace cocktail and today after a rather gloomy week in London we thought we’d take some bourbon flavoured cheer to our friends at My Daily, AOL and Huffington Post.

Along with a fabulous team from Hi-Spirits we set up a pop up bar in the Huffington Post offices and introduced the teams to some tasty Friday afternoon refreshments.

The firm favourite was the fresh tasting mint julep which is made from Buffalo Trace, Mint Leaves and simple syrup. DO try this at home!

The team also got to learn about Buffalo Trace’s heritage. Did you know that the name Buffalo Trace actually derives from the founders of the award winning distillery literally following a gang of Buffalos to a river crossing? #FridayFact!
