Captain Morgan is a brand of rum created by Diageo. It was named, after the 17th-century Welsh privateer of the tropical Caribbean Island, Sir Henry Morgan, who passed away on 26/8/1688. Since the year 2011, the label used the slogan "To Life, Love and Loot."
In 1944, the Seagram Company started producing rum under the name of Captain Morgan Rum Company.
Seagram CEO Samuel Bronfman purchased a distillery called Long Pond from the Jamaican government. Among the buyers of raw rum from the Long Pond Distillery was a Kingston pharmacy called Levy Brothers. The Levy family had been purchasing fresh rum, adding medicinal herbs and spices, then ageing, and bottling it up. Bronfman liked the rum he produced and bought the rights to it.
In the 1950s the governments of both the United States and its Puerto Rico commonwealth territory instituted many job creation schedules in Puerto Rico. Taxes on rum entering the contiguous 48 states from Puerto Rico was made lower than those on rum coming in from any foreign country.
