Rum Kraken: why choose it

Rum Kraken represents a novelty in the world of sugar cane distillates, in fact, it was only introduced on the market in 2010. The choice of the Proximo Spirits distillery rum producer prod Kraken, was that of create a rum that became part of the spiced rum typology, which in recent years is gaining a good space especially among the youngest. Il rum Kraken it is certainly a distillate with spicy notes that makes it very original, but very different from the traditional rums on the market and is characterized by a marked predisposition to be used in cocktails such as Cracking Cola, in which the spicy notes often represent an added value.

The Kraken is a giant squid, a legendary beast that according to the beautiful video on the web attacked a ship loaded with rum from the Caribbean bound for Norway, killing all the crew. Only a rum barrel stained with black ink from the squid survived, which came to the Queen of Norway, who in honor of the dead sailors decided to produce a rum with a black color.

Characteristics Rum Kraken
