In 1945 Samuel Bronfman's vast Distillers Corporation Seagrams Ltd - set up Captain Morgan Rum Distillers in Jamaica. They began as blenders of spirit from various distilleries which they bottled and marketed as 'Captain Morgan Rum'; but obtained their own sources of the raw material when in 1953 they purchased the Long Pond sugar estate and rum distillery.

It's the flagship rum i Seagram's portfolio, the second bestselling rum brand in the world an the leading dark rum brand in the UK. Blending and bottling takes place a various Seagram sites around the worl which explains why the packaging is not entirely consistent.

The question of who will retain ultimate control of Seagram’s Captain Morgan dark rum–whether British drinks giant Diageo PLC or Puerto Rican distiller Destileria Serralles–is still up in the air.
