History of rum

Discover the history of rum with the Captain

Starting out as sugar cane, the thrill seeking Caribbean locals squeezed out the sweet juices inside before fermenting, distilling and aging to create the very first rum. It was a secret kept to those shores until 1493 when a privateer named Columbus and his crew landed in the sun-soaked Caribbean. Others followed and traded tea cups for sugar cane.

Secret blends of herbs, spices and fruits were added and before long, the sweet spiced nectar was the tipple of choice in all the taverns in the region.

But for all privateers, buccaneers and landlubbers alike the thing that matters today is the taste of Captain Morgan’s sumptuous secret recipes.
