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.

The opening of a Captain Morgan branded bar on a tiny Bahamian island this last weekend signals Diageo GTME (Global Retail Middle East) division’s opening assault on the cruise line sector.

Diageo intends to grow Captain Morgan into a "global mega brand", according to Ed Pilkington, the group’s global category director for vodka, gin and rum.
