First introduced in 2010, Kraken Rum is a Caribbean black spiced Rum, produced by US-based Proximo Spirits. The base rum is a molasses-base rum from Trinidad where it’s made with locally grown sugar cane. Kraken Rum is inspired by the Kraken, a giant mythical sea monster. According to the legend of the Kraken, once upon a time in the Caribbean Islands, a ship carrying a large amount of black spiced Rum disappeared mysteriously – and with it all the sailors. Rumor has it that the ship carrying the black spiced rum was attacked by the Kraken as the monster resided in the blackest depths of the sea, emerging only to destroy and devour entire ships. Only one barrel of rum survived, stained by the squid's black ink – it was named “The Kraken Rum”.
