The Kraken

The Oddbins Take

They Say

As it is told, The Kraken Rum is an imported rum from the Caribbean blended with secret spices. Named for the sea beast of myth and legend, The Kraken Rum is strong, rich, black and smooth. It is said that a ship carrying one of the largest quantities of black spiced rum ever to be brought over from the Caribbean islands, for unexplained reasons, never reached its destination. Stories were plentiful, and while an attack by the Kraken is suspected, no stories were ever confirmed. Barrels carrying this black spiced rum drifted off the ship into the sea and the rum was renamed after the Kraken as a tribute (some say as a “sacrifice”) to this beast’s unchallengeable power and might. There are few first-hand accounts of encounters with the Kraken, as most who encounter the Kraken do not live to tell the tale.

We Say

Very few people have lived to tell the tale of an encounter with the Kraken, even fewer have sought to control the beast. Legend tells us that if ever you find yourself sailing the Caribbean Sea and hear a sound similar to a submerged explosion, followed by an unexplained ripple as far as the eye can see, we implore you to hide. We're not sure where, as seas tend to be fairly void of good hiding spots, perhaps just stand very still and pray the Krakens vision is dependent upon movement. Fleeing is pointless; the Kraken is all powerful, uncompromising, fierce and dark as pitch. It is clear this rum is not for the faint-hearted but for those with spirit it is well worth releasing the Kraken!
