Sales of Captain Morgan rum will one day catch up with Bacardi, according to Diageo.

Diageo has opened a US$5m Captain Morgan visitors’ centre as part of of its new distillery in the US Virgin Islands.

Diageo has launched a global, multi-media marketing campaign for its Captain Morgan rum-based brand.
