Product of: United States
The Kraken is a dark spiced rum based on rums distilled from molasses at Angostura Distillery, Trinidad and aged between one and two years. This is then blended with spices, including cinnamon, ginger and cloves.
Kraken are legendary sea monsters, tales of which originated centuries ago with sightings of real giant squid. The Kraken proved not just the inspiration behind this rum brand's name and insignia but also for the sea monster in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. The brand is marketed with the apt strapline, "The Kraken puts a beast in your belly."
