A favorite worldwide, Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum is the taste that started it all. Mellow aged and enhanced with special fruit flavors, spices, and a delicate hint of vanilla for a unique essence all its own. Deliciously different and exceptionally smooth, Original Spiced Rum has a character as unforgettable as The Captain himself.
The secret of Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold is its recipe, obviously secret: the best rums in the Caribbean mixed with a selection of natural spices from Jamaica, then aged in white oak barrels. This alcoholic beverage combines traditional rum flavors such as vanilla, brown sugar, spices, and dried fruits and is available at an affordable price.
Captain Morgan, one of the largest spirit brands in the world, was founded in 1944 by Seagrams CEO Sam Bronfman, who named the brand after Welsh buccaneer Captain Henry Morgan.
When the company purchased the Long Pond distillery in Jamaica, they discovered that one of the buyers of their rum was the Levy Brothers, a pharmacy in Kingston that would combine the rum with spices and herbs.
Toast to the memory of Sir Henry Morgan, Welsh Admiral who later became a pirate, mixing your rum and cola.
It’s become fashionable to hate on the Captain, but the original in the spiced-rum category has a pronounced vanilla scent accented with clove and allspice notes. The sweet caramel flavor is one-dimensional, but it’s easy to see why it’s endured all these years: Mixed with Coke (or other mixers) and lots of ice, it blends right in and becomes easy sipping.
