Captain Morgan is a brand of rum founded, owned and distributed by Seagrams. According to the company's website, Captain Morgan was introduced in 1945 by then-President and CEO Sam Bronfman. After founding the Captain Morgan Rum Company, Bronfman purchased the Long Pond Distillery in Jamaica and a recipe from two Jamaican pharmacists named the Levy Brothers. That recipe was produced and marketed as the company's first branded drink, Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum. Captain Morgan gift sets can be assembled with bottles of liquor or other merchandise, such as T-shirts.
