Company email (August 2019)
"In answer to your query by EU law (Regulation 1169/2001, Annex II) we are required to tell consumers if any of the 14 listed allergens are present in our products.

Captain Morgan does not contain any of the 14 listed allergens.

"Captain Morgan Original Spiced only contains rum, sugar, flavourings and colourings. Whilst it is believed that there is nothing in the liquid that would make it unsuitable for vegans, Diageo can not make any specific claim that the product is suitable. Captain Morgans has not been officially certified as suitable for Vegans, and we do not certify any of our products as vegan friendly."

[These are the companies where I'd like to add a "probably vegan but being dorks about it" category. There are other rums that are more fothcoming, we recommend them...]

Company email (February 2019)
"We currently do not test our products to verify that they are Vegan, and therefore, cannot make any claims about its Vegan status. We also are unable to verify if the ingredients used are vegan, as the ingredients of our products are proprietary." [Normally we'd put them as unknown if they won't tell, but "we've got a secret way to make rum" is too ridiculous to deal with]
