Win a bottle of The Kraken Black Spiced rum, worth R400

Posted on 28 October 2019

Imported from the Caribbean and carefully blended with 13 different secret spices, The Kraken Black Spiced rum is strong, rich, black and smooth. It is also not for the weak of spirit, making it the perfect go-to drink for rambunctious South Africans looking for something to suit their story.

The legend

Th­e Kraken Black Spiced is named after the sea beast of myth and legend, said to have brought down the world’s largest shipment of Caribbean rum. The story involves a dark and stormy night on the deepest, blackest seas, and a monstrous, eight-armed squid with tentacles a mile long that attacks ships. Storms rage, ships are broken into pieces (eight pieces…coincidence?) Three eye-witnesses swear to have seen these terrifying attacks. Those people, of course, have never been seen again; they drowned, their last breaths filled with seawater and black ink as they were pulled beneath the surface of the sea.

Dredged from the blackest depths of the unrelenting north Atlantic and said to have been touched by the notorious sea beast, The Kraken Black Spiced is dark and dangerous, mysterious and nefarious. And undeniably delicious.

Distilled in the Caribbean from naturally sweet molasses, The Kraken Black Spiced is then blended with secret spices, notes of vanilla, cinnamon, citrus, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, peppercorn, and also danger – lots and lots of danger.

Enjoy a Kraken and Cola (mix 1 part Kraken with 3 parts cola and add a lime wedge) or mix yourself a Perfect Storm (1 part Kraken mixed with 3 parts ginger beer and add a lime wedge) and settle into an evening of story-telling with friends to see what it’s all about.

The Kraken Black Spiced is available at all good bottle stores at a recommended retail price of R399.
