Toast Club’s Success with Limited Edition Captain ‘Wes’ Morgan

Leicester City supporters looking to toast the Club’s Barclays Premier league title can do so with a limited edition Captain Morgan bottle, which goes on sale in the City Fanstore at King Power Stadium this Saturday, along with in a number of supermarkets throughout Leicester.

Following Leicester City being crowned Barclays Premier League champions at the beginning of May, drink company Captain Morgan produced limited edition Captain ‘Wes’ Morgan bottles of the spirit, replacing their famous buccaneer on the label with an image of Leicester City’s captain Wes Morgan.

The label on the limited edition bottles sees Leicester City’s captain, Wes Morgan, sport royal blue and white robes, while his signature and a medallion inscribed with 2016 to mark the Club’s achievements this season, also feature.

Rhys Love, Senior Brand Manager of Captain Morgan, said: “Captains lead by example and we ae thrilled to have one of the greatest captains of recent times, who coincidentally shares our name, become the centre of a historic sporting moment. We have created a limited edition Captain ‘Wes’ Morgan bottle to celebrate his incredible title win triumph as the Club’s skipper. We salute Leicester City and their own Captain Morgan.”

Limited edition bottles of Captain Morgan flowed into production at the beginning of May, following a twitter exchange between the drink company and Wes Morgan – which came about after Leicester City were crowned Barclays Premier League champions.

Following an unprecedented number of request from fans, Captain Morgan have announced they will be releasing a further 11,000 commemorative bottles of Captain ‘Wes’ Morgan.

Rhys Love added: “We had an incredible response from Leicester City fans when we unveiled the commemorative ‘Wes Morgan’ bottle earlier in May to celebrate the club’s historic triumph with Wes Morgan at the helm. We’ve been working hard to respond to this demand, and are excited that fans will have the chance to buy one of 11,000 limited edition bottles in the Leicester City Football Club store and selected retailers around the city.”

The bottles will be made available from a number of Asda, Morrisons, Waitrose and Tesco stores throughout Leicester and Leicestershire from next week, while Leicester City fans will also be able to buy bottles from the City Fanstore at King Power Stadium from Saturday 28 May

Proceeds from the limited edition Captain Morgan bottles sold at the City Fanstore will go towards the LCFC Foxes Foundation’s 2015/16 ‘Second Million’ campaign, which supports a number of Leicester based charities.
