Diageo, the world’s largest premium drinks company has launched a pan-European online campaign ‘Think How You Drink’ to remind young people that drinking to excess can lead to shame and embarrassment.

Diageo’s Captain Morgan reached the milestone of 10 million 9-litre case sales during the year ending November 30.

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

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.
