Captain Morgan Launches Shot-Inspired Canon Blast In Orlando

By Rob Lee  |  10/20/2015

Captain Morgan launched its new, shot-inspired Canon Blast Rum this weekend... in the biggest way possible.

BallerStatus traveled to Orlando, Florida with Captain Morgan for the debut what they refer to as the "shot to end all shots," via its first-ever Cannon Blast Bar Crawl. The spectacle took over the Wall Street Plaza in Downtown Orlando, with human cannonball Brian Miser being shot from multiple cannons between various bars.

We documented the experience, speaking to both Captain Morgan himself and Miser about the new Canon Blast drink and the event celebrating its launch.

Captain Morgan Cannon Blast features a blend of Caribbean rum and unique bold spices, which gives drinkers a blast of citrus sweet flavor, followed by a spark of unexpected heat. It also comes in a cannonball shaped bottle that glows in the dark when featured with a black light.
