A Captain’s Network Surprise All The Way From St. Croix

I just received a fun little gift in the mail, thanks to being one of the lucky few in “The Captain’s Network” of sports fans and bloggers. It seems that Captain Morgan recently opened up a new rum production facility, so they sent me one of the very first bottles ever produced there.

Surprisingly, I was able to keep the grubby mitts of the guys I work with off of the bottle and its delicious contents long enough to snap a picture of it:

This is in my office, where, as you can see, I have a little personal shrine to my favorite White Sox, Paul “The Captain” Konerko (Captain…”The Captain”…so appropriate!) and Mark Buehrle.

And no, I’m not going to put the Buehrle bobblehead away just because he’s in another uniform now. As weird as that is, whatever. He’ll always be a White Sox.

Anyway, I do appreciate the fine folks at Captain for sending the bottle my way and giving me something else to toast IU’s return to the NCAA Tournament with…unless I decide to keep it sealed and sell it later as a collector’s item. Decisions, decisions.

Here is more info on their new production facility:

In Nov. 2010, Captain Morgan opened a new rum production facility in St. Croix in the Virgin Islands.  Over the past year, the state of the art facility has been preparing to ship out its first batch of Captain Morgan Original Spiced Rum to its legions of loyal consumers and fans.  The new facility was quite the undertaking – requiring 300,000 man-hours of work to create the space including storage for up to 200,000 barrels (or 11 million gallons!) of spiced rum.

The liquid will stay the same, but the first bottles will become instant collectibles and pieces of spirits history.

Thank you Captain.

Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard.
