Is this story correct? Usually these things involve Bacardi :P

Usually when I find a story about a stupid criminal doing something stupid for/while-drunk-on rum, it invariably involves Bacardi. But this time it seems Captain Morgan (and Captain Morgan Private Stock) served as this master criminal’s boozy muse:

Deputies: Rum thief left barrel of clues after bar burglary

So, do we respect him more or less? Private Stock isn’t exactly top shelf, but depending on the bar it might have been the best available. Perhaps we have a connoisseur on our hands?

Captain Morgan Gives Rum to Archaeologists – and not just a bottle or two

Captain Morgan Spiced Rum isn’t exactly top shelf. But, they don’t really claim to be, either. They actually seem pretty comfortable in their skin as a staple frat-party mixer rum, and for that I respect them. Fun commercials now and then as well. And now this:

Captain Morgan Rewards Archaeologists With Rum For Ocean Floor Find

That’s right – as a reward for finding the historical Morgan’s ship, Captain Morgan Rum is giving each expedition member a BARREL of their OWN BLEND of rum.

!!!

Crikes, that’s an incredibly sweet reward – and PLUS they’re offering a bonus to the first diver to recover a bottle of actual “Captain Morgan’s” rum (meaning that which at one point belonged to the man himself.) Whoever knew that hunting for sunken pirate treasure could be so lucrative?
