Kraken Black is a Caribbean black spiced Rum distributed in by US-based Proximo Spirits. It is named after the Kraken, a giant mythical sea monster.
Legend has it that many years ago in the Caribbean Islands a ship carrying a large quantity of black spiced Rum mysteriously disappeared. It is rumored that the ship was attacked by the Kraken.
The base for Kraken Rum is sourced from Trinidad, distilled from molasses crafted from locally-grown sugar cane.
Kraken Black is aged 1–2 years and blended with a mix of 11 spices, including cinnamon, ginger and clove. The liquid is black, and the bottle inspired by a Victorian Rum bottle, designed with two hoop handles. A tradition born from hanging bottled to prevent breakages.
