Captain Morgan Rum Price List 2021

Introduction to Captain Morgan

Originated in 1944 in Canada, Captain Morgan Rum is one of the cheaper and more popular brands of rum today. It’s one of the most common rums that’s being used for cocktails since the company developed it to really be a mixing rum.

Captain Morgan Trivia

The pirate on the bottle? That is Captain Morgan and he really did exist, and he really was a captain! Welsh-born, Captain Henry Morgan was known to be a ruthless pirate. Well, not really. He’s technically called a privateer because his pirate activities were all sanctioned by the government. Captain Morgan attacked Spanish interests in the name of Her Majesty the Queen.

The Captain isn’t exactly the best role model since he wasn’t probably a good person to begin with. Thankfully, the real Captain Morgan doesn’t have any connection with the beloved rum brand that we know today. He was just the inspiration used by the cartoonist who was commissioned to draw the logo for the rum. The pirate on the label is most famous for his swashbuckling stance, which has been fairly recognized in social media and pop culture in general.

Captain Morgan Rum Prices

Captain Morgan Rum Price

Captain Morgan is pretty affordable as far as liquor goes. This is one of the reasons why it’s such a popular choice.

In general, the price of rum products, including Captain Morgan, varies, depending on the variant. Rum cost is likewise driven by various factors, some of which are not production-related. These include available supply, consumer demand, as well as other external factors.

Captain Morgan Rum is mainly available to the public through the primary retail market. Rum prices in this market usually follow the manufacturer’s suggested retail price. The price will start to vary widely when the product sold originally at retail gets into the secondary market or the resale market.

To better understand the price point difference in various sellers, including primary and secondary markets, as well as specialist retailers, it would be best to know the various drivers that dictate rum prices.

  • Aging – The rum’s age has a say on the final product’s price point. There is a limited production of well-aged variants; hence, they are more expensive.
  • Branding – Rum manufacturers try to make their products stand out from other brands to gain a competitive edge. Captain Morgan, for instance, promotes its products as great for mixing, and this is one factor that places the rum always on the top shelf. You’ll never find a bottle of Captain Morgan Rum on the bottom shelf.
  • Inflation and Cost of Production – When the cost of materials and ingredients used in rum manufacturing goes up, you can expect a corresponding rise in the finished product’s price. Inflation also contributes to the rising rum prices.
  • Consumer Demand & the Secondary Market – Over the years, consumer demand for rum has consistently increased. Many have shifted to rum consumption. Some even buy stocks for future resale.

Even with the current economic slowdown, Captain Morgan has maintained its share of the rum market with its high quality and affordable price.
