A fan of Michigan or/and spiced Rum? This one was MADE for YOU.

Proximo Spirits does a great job developing Spirits brands. Proximo was founded in 2007 by the Beckman family — owners of José Cuervo. Their portfolio now includes ten brands across a wide range of Spirits from Whiskey to Vodka, Gin, and Mezcal and back again. The Kraken Rum line of spiced Rums was introduced in 2010 and has seen exponential growth, especially in Australia where it has a dominant market position.

They devised The Kraken Attacks series as a brilliant promotion to support local bars during the pandemic with free cocktails and by issuing a series of limited edition bottles to support the project. It also will help them get more penetration in the US market, so everybody wins (except the competition). The Kraken Attacks Michigan is as dark as the U.P. in December, sweeping through the Great Lakes Waterway, stopping in a lovely town with a lovely name – Hell. We’re trying to say that this flavorful Rum is pitch black. Blended with natural flavors and caramel color, it’s bottled at 94 proof.

Appearance / Color
Dark Walnut

Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma leads with notes of cinnamon-raisin bread, followed by butter toffee, tart apple, and a hint of menthol.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The palate is all about vanilla and rich baking spices and they are all there — from allspice and cassia to clove and nutmeg… even a hint of something citrusy.

Finish
The finish is long and wet with the rich spices hanging out for the after-party.

Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
You might find Rum masquerading itself under other nom de plumes, like Ron, Rom and Rhum.
Next time you have a tipple of Rum you can say that you're tapping the Admiral. This intriguing phrase comes from the great Admiral Nelson who was killed in the battle of Trafalgar off of Spain. The story is that his body was preserved in Rum to be shipped back to England but, when the barrel arrived, some of the Rum was missing and said to have been siphoned off by some desperate or unknowing sailors. It's a great story but most likely false.
Mount Gay Rum is the oldest existing Rum company in the World dating back to 1705. This is also the year Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Britain’s Parliament.
Rum used to be accepted as a form of currency in Europe and Australia, a practice we should probably bring back into fashion.
Rum is a sugar cane based spirit, primarily made in the Caribbean and Latin America, but you can really find Rum in many corners of the world.
