To celebrate the Hepburn Collection, designed by Brad Ascalon, we connect this collection to our very first inaugural NUDE Mixologist Competition. Out of dozens of applicants, we have selected 8 finalists. These finalists all have created their NUDE recipe based on NUDE's ethos and inspired by the Hepburn Collection.
We are pleased to introduce you the 8 finalists...

With it’s beautiful golden-yellow hue, sitting perfectly still in the bowl of the Hepburn Coupe, as a small maple leaf floats around the surface like a fallen leaf atop a puddle, it is simultaneously modest and stunning.

Inspired by her favourite autumn flavours of pear, apple, and cinnamon, Autumn Pear is the perfect cocktail for those cold autumnal days.
Mark Addison / @mark_addison - Cranberry Sauce Punch
Based on a jammy swirl of cranberries, spices and orange juice, Cranberry Sauce Punch is reminiscent of everyone’s favorite holiday condiment; topped off with good champagne, the gratitude will definitely be flowing!
