BIO:

Notorious on the Chicago scene as a wild brandisher of swords, a thrower of fullly adorned Christmas trees, and the instigator behind many feasts comprised of the ultimate pairing of vintage Champagne and fried chicken, Adam Seger is a mover and shaker (of cocktails). At Nacional 27, Mr. Seger approaches mixology and wine pairing as a chef, focused on the elements of each cocktail playing in tandem with each ingredient to create a culinary-mixology fusion, seamlessly intertwining components of the bar and the kitchen. If you care for accolades and achievements, Mr. Seger is also a Certified Culinary Professional (CCP) and has passed the Advanced Exam of the Court of Master Sommeliers. No surprise that he tinkers in the kitchen to hand-craft custom liqueurs and uses primarily boutique, authentic, hard to track down spirits…he has a serious ingredient obsession. He makes his own maraschino cherries! Mr. Seger is dabbling in boldness of flavor that is deftly balanced and elegant to boot, while wowing the palate.
