Release the Kraken!
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, a legendary sea monster known for its deadly tentacles, razor sharp teeth, and insatiable appetite. Probably no legendary creature was as horrifying as the Kraken. According to the stories this huge, many armed creature looked like an island when motionless and could reach as high as the top of a sailing ship's main mast with its arms deployed.
Kraken Black Spiced Rum is distilled in pot stills on the Virgin Islands and fermented from molasses made from sugar cane grown on nearby riverbanks. Natural yeasts are used to ferment the water thinned molasses, which is converted directly into alcohol. Kraken Rum is then aged in oak barrels for 12 to 24 months before being blended with a range of spices, including cinnamon, ginger and clove.
When faced with a bottle of spiced Rum, the most obvious thing to do is mix it with Coke. If you’re feeling more adventurous, go for spiced Rum with Ginger Beer or Root Beer.
