You can give up your meat for Lent on Fridays, but I would strongly recommend you jump on some hum. No, it's not a compact version of the 90s gas-guzzler, but rather, the latest spirit to hit the shelves, compliments of local boy Adam Seger. At night, Seger is GM at Nacional 27, and doubles as the restaurant's Mixologist/Bar Chef (he's also working on a new book about cocktails). But during the day, he's an alchemist; a guy who spends almost every waking hour thinking about how he can put more joy into your glass. He's done it, frankly, with something called hum.
If five years ago you were trying to explain what an iPhone was it would be extremely difficult," Seger told me.
