9. Captain Morgan

It is named after the 17th century Welsh pirate, Sir Henry Morgan, when the Seagram Company started producing rum under the name "Captain Morgan Rum Company," in 1944. Diageo became the owner of this Caribbean-born spiced rum brand in 2001.

Spiced rum initially came from adding medicinal herbs and spices to raw rum and then aging it.
