The Kraken Black Roast Coffee Rum is available for a
limited time and upgrades the spiced rum with a coffee bean essence and natural
flavors. Bottled at an ominous 66.6 proof, it's a bold, rich, dark, and smooth
drink that is delicious chilled on its own and works well with various cocktails.
Kraken Black is a Caribbean black spiced Rum inspired by
the Kraken, the giant mythical sea monster. It's 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 tentacled Kraken.
The spirit that is 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.
