The Kraken is imported rum from the Caribbean blended with natural flavours. Named for a sea beast of myth and legend, The Kraken rum is strong, rich, black and smooth. This rum is distilled in pot stills on the Virgin Islands and fermented from naturally sweet mollasses made from sugar cane grown on nearby riverbanks. Natural yeasts are used to ferment the water-thinned mollasses, which is converted directly into alcohol. The rum is distilled to 97.5% alcohol and is then aged in oak barrels for between 12 and 24 months - before being blended with a range of spices including cinnamon, ginger and clove. Best served over ice, or as a component in any number of exotic cocktails.

"STOLEN is proud to introduce the World’s First Smoked Rum… the result of an artisanal approach fueled by the desire to reinvent the rum category. We start with a column-distilled rum from Trinidad, made from locally sourced sugar cane and molasses. The rum is then aged for up to 2 years in used American oak whiskey barrels. Capturing the essence of a fresh brewed cup of joe, we infuse the rum using re-fractionated Colombian Arabica coffee, wholly distilled from same-day roasted beans. The warm, roasted flavour is complemented by the creamy sweetness and velvety texture of premium Madagascan vanilla beans and Moroccan fenugreek. The rum is rounded off with notes of American hardwood, acquired through a smoking process called pyrolysis-the burning of hardwood in the absence of oxygen. The finished product is a smooth, medium body rum with a generous bouquet. On the palate, the deep profile of coffee, vanilla, warm caramel and dark chocolate mix with lingering notes of charred oak for a long, smooth, smoky finish."
Premium Caribbean Rum aged in American Oak barrels for 2 years in a tropical climate and infused with the perfect balance of natural spice and subtle flavours.Smooth cloaks of caramel, vanilla and clove paired with orange and cinnamon mean it’s sweet on the nose but with a smooth, dry taste.
