The back story of Captain Morgan- The Man: He was the 17th Century Welsh-Born buccaneer, governor of Jamaica.​ Being a well-loved rogue who lived a life full of mischievous and true passion for rum-seeking fun.​ ​When he spoke, people listened, whether frolicking through a bar or priming his men on a raid, his ability to inspire those around him was legendary.​ ​Over 3 ½ centuries later- his legend lives on through our rum that bears his name.

The Captain Morgan Timeline

  • 1944– Seagram Company started producing rum under the name ‘CAPTAIN MORGAN RUM COMPANY’ at Long Pond distillery in Jamaica.​
  • 1953– Sam Bronfman (CEO of Seagrams) observed that one of its key customers, Levy Brothers Pharmacy, would purchase the raw rum and add medicinal herbs and spices – aging it and then bottling it. Bronfman liked the product so much he bough rights to this “spiced” rum recipe with intention of developing it further.​
  • 1984– The idea lay dormant for nearly 30 years until it was re-launched in the US in 1984 as Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum.
  • 2001- Seagram sold the “Captain Morgan” brand to Diageo​
  • 2008– Distillery moved to St. Croix.​
