Riddle me this… Stuart Hudson
Riddle gets up close with the Brand Ambassador for Hudson Whiskey
If you knew then what you know now… would you still do it?
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?
You know nothing, in fact you know less than nothing. If you knew you knew nothing that would be something, but you don’t.
What’s the weirdest rumour you’ve ever heard about yourself?
I was getting deported as a joke, but it was kinda scary as I was in the middle of getting a new visa and it was 50/50 at the time and no one knew that.
What was your biggest break?
Getting a job at Milk & Honey London, I worked there over a couple of years when we were constantly rated as the best bar on the planet and it totally changed how I approached drinks, the industry and above all service.
Do you consider yourself lucky?
What’s most important in your life?
My partner in crime and love of my life – Andrea Montague and my library.
What brands do you admire?
Dom Perignon – everything the brand does is beautifully thought out and executed perfectly. It effortlessly suggests luxury, which is what you want for a luxury brand and they do it without even appearing to try. Also it is fucking awesome liquid.
Do you have a guilty pleasure – if so what is it?
Describe your personal sense of style.
Guayabera Shirt, Dark Jeans, Converse – in a thousand different combinations.
