Kraken Black Cherry & Madagascan Vanilla Black Spiced Rum – RRP: £26
Retailer: Tesco https://www.tesco.com/groceries/en-GB/products/313736751
The Kraken Black Cherry and Madagascan Vanilla promises a fearsomely fruity and flavourful fusion of the signature black spiced Caribbean rum with rich cherries and an undercurrent of Madagascan vanilla, for a wildly delicious and refreshingly smooth finish. It is a seasonable and versatile flavour that is most refreshing when served simply with cola over ice, garnished with a lime wedge.
The Kraken Roast Coffee – RRP: £26
Retailer: Amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/Kraken-Black-Spiced-Roast-Coffee/dp/B07HMX6YR6
A rich fusion of Spiced Caribbean Rum and fine Arabica Bean coffee, this flavour tastes every bit as devilishly intense as one might suspect – craftily balancing the rich, dark, smooth taste of coffee with the spices of the original Kraken Black Spiced Rum. The Kraken Roast Coffee is best being enjoyed as an Espresso Rumtini, vigorously shaken.
