The Kraken is a black spiced rum produced in Trinidad and Tobago. The Kraken takes its name from a legendary sea monster of gigantic proportions. A Kraken was known to feed on whales, ships and men.
It is said that a ship carrying a large consignment of black spiced Caribbean rum was attacked and taken down by a Kraken. Barrels of dark rum drifted from the ship and were renamed ‘The Kraken’ as a tribute to the beast’s power and might.
