Food & Wine | A holiday must from the depths

“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.”

I love the above ad and everything about the brand. For those of you looking for the perfect gift, there is a well kept secret that has emerged from the depths just in time for holiday shopping. The Kraken Rum  has released a special edition ceramic bottle for the collector in you or for those who enjoy the mystery of its origins. This very limited edition bottle may have been found at the bottom of the sea, but it can now live in your home if you are quick enough to get yours before they are all gone.

“Imported from the Caribbean and carefully spiced with a top-secret blend, The Kraken Black Spiced Rum is strong, rich, black, and smooth. It is not for the weak of spirit.”

I’ve been sipping the dark elixir that Kraken Rum produces for years and can’t wait to get my hands on a Kraken Special Edition bottle or two. Make sure to check your local LCBO or liquor store to ensure you get yours.

Remember that sometimes the best gift you can give the ones you love always has some intrigue. And what is more intriguing than the Kraken?
