Description

Captain Morgan "Black Label" is a rum which was marketed in the 1980s and imported to Italy by the René Briand company (based in Milan).

This rum is made from Jamaican rum, but also rums from Guyana and Barbados.

We owe the Captain Morgan brand - created in 1944 - to Samuel Bronfman (then president of Seagram) who then bought the recipe for a rum with spices and herbs from a pharmacy in Kingston.

Named after Sir Henry Morgan, a 17th-century Welsh buccaneer who was knighted and appointed governor of Jamaica at the end of his life, the brand was sold in 2001 to Diageo.
