The Kraken Black Spiced Rum is a dark spiced Caribbean rum introduced to the UK in Spring 2010 and causing a 'perfect storm' in the rum category.

The brand takes its name from a legendary, mythical sea beast - a squid of monstrous size said to grow up to 100ft long - which attacks ships and devours their crews.

As it is told on Kraken's website, The Kraken Rum is an imported rum from the Caribbean blended with 13 secret spices. Named after the sea beast of myth and legend, The Kraken rum is strong, rich, black and smooth. It is said that a ship carrying one of the largest quantities of black spiced rum ever to be brought over from the Caribbean islands, for unexplained reasons, never reached its destination. Stories were plentiful, and while an attack by the Kraken is suspected, no stories were ever confirmed.

Barrels carrying this black spiced rum drifted off the ship into the sea and the rum was renamed after the Kraken as a tribute (some say as a “sacrifice”) to this beast’s unchallengable power and might. There are few first-hand accounts of encounters with the Kraken, as most who encounter the Kraken do not live to tell the tale. One seafarer’s diary that was discovered washed-up on one of the smaller Pacific islands holds an encounter with what scientists have deduced must have been the Kraken.

AS THEY SAY, “To not respect the power of the Kraken is to not respect the sea.” So drink with respect.
