HUM has arrived.

The newest local spirit to debut, HUM is the brilliant beverage concocted by Mr. Adam Seger. This spirit is incredibly versatile and extra delicious, bursting with flavor and quite tasty herbs, flowers, and fruits. HUM is essentially a botanical spirit, or, rather, a mingling of a strapping base of rum infused with hibiscus, cardamom, ginger, and kaffir lime. A spirit and a liqueur, HUM is lovely as a twist on classic cocktails, or can pump up your favorites with a burst of flavor. Or, if you like to be told what to do, Mr. Seger has developed an extensive list of tried and true tasty cocktails. Sip it neat, stir, shake, or share. Elegant, balanced, and vibrantly pink!
