Adam Seger

Mixologist

Chicago

Adam Seger has a little bit of everything mixed into his career — much like a well-concocted cocktail. He is a Certified Culinary Professional, an advanced sommelier and a wine and spirits judge for the Beverage Tasting Institute, but after spending time in some of the most renowned restaurants, like The French Laundry and Tru (both in the kitchen and front of house), Seger found his true passion: mixology. The Chicagoan has created a few spirit companies — Hum Botanical Spirits, Bar Keep Swedish Herb Bitters and Truffle Amere by Rare Botanical Bitters Company — and acts as sommelier and mixologist for iPic Entertainment, a luxury movie-theater concept. He’s also penning his first book, Drink Like You Eat: The Seasonal Cocktail Cookbook, and continuing to expand his line of bitters.
