The Kraken rum is named after a legendary sea monster similar to a giant scary squid with huge frightening tentacles, that the old sailors believed to have spread fear and terror through the world’s seas and oceans in 18th and 19th centuries. So this mythical creature is very originally represented on the bottle label in black and white. It’s interesting to know that the bottle style is in a way a vintage design, because the inspiration for it was a Victorian rum bottle, with two handles that were used by sailors to hang the bottle so it wouldn’t break.
