Booze of the Month (June) – The Kraken Black Spiced Rum
Booze of the Month – The Kraken Black Spiced Rum
The Kraken Black Spiced Rum is a black Caribbean rum infused with 13 secret spices to give it a distinct bold but smooth flavor profile. Black rums are different than dark rums in that they get their dark coffee color from adding caramel and molasses instead of barrel aging.
The Kraken packs a lot of different ingredients but they harmoniously blend into a mouth filling rum with flavors of Black Strap Molasses and Christmas spices (cinnamon, clove and ginger). This is a pretty high in alcohol spiced rum, 94%, that works well in a variety of cocktails. It’s perfect in a “Dark and Stormy” with ginger beer and a lime wedge, or with Coke in a “Krak ’n Coke”.
The Kraken has a great story to tell all served in a Victorian style jug. Legend has it The Kraken, a fifty foot long giant octopod, brought down a ship with a cargo of black rum and the ship was never seen again. Hence, this black spiced rum was named The Kraken as a tribute or sacrifice to this powerful sea monster.
Now that you know the story, give this strong but smooth elixir a try next time you visit Seville Quarter. The Kraken is available in all bars from your favorite
