Captain Morgan is a brand of rum produced by Diageo. It is named after the 17th-century Caribbean privateer from Wales, Sir Henry Morgan. Captain Morgan's slogan is "Got a little Captain in You?"
In 1944, the Seagram Company started producing rum under the name Captain Morgan Rum Company.
Captain Morgan's Rum is distilled from sugar cane. The combination of the type of yeasts employed for fermentation, distillation method, aging conditions, and blending determines the characteristic flavor of rum. Made with molasses, water, mash and yeast, Captain Morgan Original Spiced rum is distilled in a continuous still. Once distilled, the clear spirit is aged in oak barrels for up to a year, adding a golden color and character to the rum before the flavors and spices are added. The brand’s taste is achieved through a proprietary recipe, which is blended into the rum mixture at the final stages of production, making use of spices indigenous to the Caribbean Islands.
CAPITAN MORGAN PRIVATE STOCK
Private Stock is made from the finest of Captain Morgan’s reserves, married with a richer blend of mellow island spices. Aged in oak for at least 2 years, it's perfect for sipping and savouring on the rocks with a twist of lime.
CAPITAN MORGAN BLACK SPICED
Captain Morgan® Black Spiced Rum is inspired by the true story of Captain Henry Morgan’s burial on the shores of Port Royal Harbour, Jamaica in 1688. Shortly after his burial, an earthquake rocked the shores of Jamaica, washing the Captain’s casket out to sea, never to be seen again. Legend has it that his restless spirit lives on to this day, sailing the Caribbean seas in search of his mortal remains. Captain Morgan® Black Spiced Rum is crafted from only the finest Caribbean Blackstrap rum and select ingredients, including rich clove spice and premium cassia bark, and is finished with double charred blackened oak for a taste as legendary as the Captain himself. The bold, dark spiced rum is best enjoyed on the rocks.
