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?

    Man, did I get on the wrong boat! The dig I did we only got grades. We had to *pay* for it!

    …barrel of rum… *grumble*

    Yeah, well, my archaeology degree only landed me a job in a library. No chance of being rewarded with a barrel of rum there. We do go out for Margarita Night once a month, though…

    Wow, that is incredibly generous for a million dollar corporation… I sense a new ad campaign is on the horizon. Possibly one to rival that of Jameson or Kraken, because lets face it, Captain Morgan is a bit more historical and I don’t know… real!

    Kraken will offer a reward to the first man who brings a live giant squid to shore.

    But the Capt. does know a thing about PR.
