Captain Morgan moving to the VI

Great News! Diageo is moving the Captain Morgan plant to the Virgin Islands! I am a huge Captain fan but I've been migrating more towards Cruzan since it's the local rum, but now I'll have two local rums to choose from. WooHoo!!

Here are the articles in St. Thomas source:

I tried to pull up the article, no joy. Are they going to be made under contract by Cruzan?

Cheers, RickG

That's weird that you can't get to the article. Try just going to the St. Thomas source main page ( and scroll down until you see the stories about the new distillery. Captain Morgan is owned by Diageo and Cruzan is owned by Pernod Ricard, two totally different corporations, so two different distilleries.

Here is the article where Pernod Ricard made the commitment to purchase Cruzan. I guess the deal is not final, but should close this summer sometime.
