Captain Morgan

In 1654 a young Henry Morgan left his native Wales for the West Indies. He never looked back. A born leader, he quickly made Captain and became famous as a legal pirate or Buccaneer, defending British interests and generally rocking the Caribbean. His awesome exploits on the high seas earned him a knighthood and by 1680 Sir Henry Morgan was a plantation owner and Governor of Jamaica. There he lived out his final days until his death in 1688.

When Sam Bronfman, President and CEO of Seagram's drinks company, arrived in the Caribbean in the 1940s, he was mesmerized by the opportunities presented by spiced rum. He founded the Captain Morgan Rum Company in 1945.

Captain Morgan ® Black rum has serious depth of flavour, recalling the navy "rum rations" which went down so well with sailors, swashbuckling adventurers and connoisseurs alike.

It is a blend of pot and continuous still rums from Jamaica, Guyana & Barbados and is aged in oak and has a dark, full-bodied colour and distinctive rich taste that are unmistakable.
