  Details below...  


P.S. Wednesday was Talk like a Pirate Day- Maybe pick up some Roaring Dan's Rum and celebrate in style! 

Our Seasonal Pumpkin Spirit is Released! (but only for a limited time!)
The 2012 release is now available!

THE perfect spirit for the upcoming Autumn weather!

What is it, you may ask?
We start with Lakefront Brewery's Pumpkin Lager.  We distill it and age it in new & used Bourbon Barrels.  The aging mellows the spirit which is then bottled at 90 proof.
The Beverage Tasting institute awarded us a Silver Medal, rating it at 89 points - Highly Recommended!!

You'll find it at your favorite bars, restaurants and retailers.!

More info on our Pumpkin Spirit here, and be sure to see our recipe below.
