Myers's Rum, Platinum White and Golden Rich were produced at Arecibo and labelled 'Puerto Rican Rum'.


There were always 65,000 forty-gallon barrels of rum at the Seagram UK processing plant at Speke, Liverpool, and the storage centre at Huyton. Their supplies came mainly from Guyana and Jamaica, but also in small amounts from Barbados, Hawaii, Mexico and Puerto Rico. The rum was diluted and made up into various blends, put into bottles on which labels were put with such names as 'Captain Morgan' (the most in demand), 'Woods', 'Myers', 'Old Charlie' and 'Tropicana'. A 'Myers' for the UK market differed from the 'Myers' sold in Germany. Different blends of each brand were made for Britain, Germany, Australia and Italy. 'Myers Confectionery' was bottled for the culinary market.
