Just as the young Henry Morgan came of age in the Caribbean, so too does the rum that bears his name. We take American white oak bourbon barrels, char them, and fill them with triple distilled rum. Then we leave them to rest and mature.
The charred barrels play a huge part in shaping the rum's flavour, helping release the vanillin, tannins and caramelizing sugars. Ageing in these barrels also mellows the spirit and helps create the rich golden colour that is characteristic of Captain Morgan ® Original Spiced.
