About The Kraken
Kraken Black is a Caribbean black spiced Rum inspired by the Kraken, a giant mythical sea monster. Produced by US-based Proximo Spirits. According to the legend of the Kraken, years and years ago in the Caribbean Islands, a ship carrying a large amount of black spiced Rum disappeared quite mysteriously. Rumor has it that the ship carrying the black spiced rum was attacked by the Kraken.
This spirit of this spiced rum’s foundation is sourced from Trinidad. It is distilled from molasses crafted from locally-grown sugar cane. Kraken Black is aged for up to 2 years and blended with a mix of 11 spices, including cinnamon, ginger and clove. The bottle is inspired by a Victorian style, featuring two hoop handles. This is an age old tradition born from hanging bottled to prevent breakages.
Rum history allegedly started in the Carribiens in the 17th century when they started to ferment and distill molasses, a byproduct of sugar production. Most of the Rum is aged in oak or ex-wine casks, giving its color and flavor.
We distinguish between 4 different Rum categories, where white or unaged rum is mainly used in cocktails, while dark, spiced, and añejo (aged) rum are mostly enjoyed neat.
