The Captain Morgan Rum Company has offered each adult member of the expedition team a barrel of their very own blend of rum, and plans to immortalize the team by renaming a section of the Captain Morgan distillery in St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands in their honor.
"We cannot thank these brave archaeologists enough for recovering Captain Morgan's lost cannons and returning them to us, as we all feared they were lost to the seven seas forever," said a spokesperson for the Captain Morgan Society for the Preservation of Life, Love & Loot.
The company believes that there may be bottles of Morgan's spiced rum that were aboard the Satisfaction and his other ships off the coast of Panama remain on the ocean's floor waiting to be recovered. It has offered a reward as well as a role in a future advertising campaign to whoever who recovers them with the proviso that they do so responsibly and without damaging anything natural to environment.
