The six cocktail glasses have been designed with ‘modern mixology’ in mind

Savage and the glassware company have been working on the collection for nearly four years, after Nude first approached him when he was working at Little Red Door, Paris.

‘I’ve always seen glassware as an ingredient in the cocktail and so I was delighted to collaborate on this,’ Savage says.

The glasses hold less volume than a lot of cocktail glasses, in keeping with the trend for smaller serves and a ‘flare’ on the rim is inspired by sweet wine glasses and is intended to enhance the aromas and flavours of the cocktail.

They are all lead-free and have been made as thin as possible so that the ‘drinker can get as close as possible to the liquid,’ Savage says.

‘They are delicate but we made sure they were still robust enough to handle the rigours of a bar [Nude states the glasses are dishwasher safe for more than 2,000 cycles] and we worked a lot on the balance of the glasses too. Thinking about how the glass is moved about in service from tray to table, for example.’

The six glasses comprise the Coupetini (a 160ml Martini glass inspired by a Champagne coup); the Pony (holds 125ml, inspired by vintage glassware and named after the American unit of measure); the Coup (designed for disco drinks such as an Espresso Martini that need more volume); a Lowball; a Highball, and a water glass.
