The Kraken Black Spiced Rum is imported black rum from the Caribbean and blended with over 11 secret spices. The rum takes its name from the mythical sea beast which is said to have wreaked havoc with tall ships and rum running vessels throughout history. While the smooth taste of The Kraken lends itself to be enjoyed as a sipping rum, it can also be enjoyed as a key ingredient in traditional cocktails like the Kraken & cola. For an interesting and new taste experience, try The Kraken with your favorite energy drink. The rich black color takes its hue from the mysterious ink that, as legend has, the Kraken covered its prey with during fierce battles at sea. The Kraken’s proprietary bottle is a replica of a Victorian Rum bottle and features two handles allowing for easy portability (as well as potability). Named for a sea beast of myth and legend, The Kraken is strong, rich, black and smooth.
