Who was Roaring Dan?


All rums need a pirate. Our's is no exception. Our pirate is Roaring Dan Seavey. Unlike some of those other rum pirates Dan didn't wear feathers and knee britches. He didn't have a boat load of thugs to do his dirty work and he sure doesn't have an expensive marketing company plastering his face in every bar and liquor store in the free world. No Madison Avenue types have ever even heard of Dan, but you can be sure Dan was all more
