Kraken is offered in an old fashioned jug handle bottle, reminiscent of Victorian era rum bottles, with an intricately-designed label to go with its tall tale from the olden days about a mythical sea creature called the Kraken, that downed a galleon crossing the Caribbean filled with barrels of rum. True to the name and tale, Kraken is a strong, rich black rum. The base rum used in Kraken is from Trinidad and Tobago. It is distilled from molasses made from local sugar cane and aged for 12-24 months and then blended with over 11 spices, including cinnamon, ginger and clover. 94 Proof Caribbean rum.
