Expertly blended with spice and natural flavours, my Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold is the figurehead of my ship.
A secret recipe of adventurous spice & natural flavours that are expertly blended with fine Caribbean rum ¨C then aged in charred white oak barrels to create a taste and colour as rich as a pocketful of gold doubloons. For a smooth and refreshing tasting drink, Captain Morgan Original Spiced Gold is best served in a tankard over ice, with cola and a slice of lime.
Captain Morgan’s Rum is distilled from sugar cane. The combination of the type of yeasts employed for fermentation, distillation method, aging conditions, and blending determines the characteristic flavour of rum. Made with molasses, water, mash and yeast, Captain Morgan Original Spiced rum is distilled in a continuous still. Once distilled, the clear spirit is aged in oak barrels for up to a year, adding a golden colour and character to the rum before the flavours and spices are added. The brand’s taste is achieved through a proprietary recipe, which is blended into the rum mixture at the final stages of production, making use of spices indigenous to the Caribbean Islands.
