Many years ago in the Caribbean islands, a ship carrying a large quantity of black spiced rum mysteriously disappeared. It is rumored that the ship was attacked by the Kraken, a legendary sea monster known for its deadly tentacles, razor sharp teeth, and insatiable appetite. Even though this story can’t be proven, the stories still remain, along with a respectful fear of the sea. The lost barrels of rum were renamed after the Kraken, to both honor and appease him.
The rich black color takes its hue from the mysterious ink with which, as legend has it, the Kraken, a squid of epic proportions, covered its prey.
