The Kraken Rum Searches For Cocktails ‘As Dark As A Kraken’s Ink’


This October The Kraken Rum is opening the world’s most bizarre pop-up bar, which can be found on board The Redsand Sea Forts located 9 miles off the coast of Kent.

The Kraken Rum is offering bartenders the chance to be part of a unique, if terrifying, experience. The brand’s Think Ink cocktail competition is seeking to find a Kraken Rum cocktail as a dark as the Kraken’s ink, a drink worthy of being served in the Black Ink Society’s one-day-only pop-up bar on the historic forts.

Open to interpretation, bartenders taking part in the competition are invited to interpret the ‘dark’ brief either literally or figuratively. Kraken hunting can be a maverick game and the only rule is that Kraken Rum must be the primary ingredient with at least 35ml included.

Not only does the winner have the chance serve their cocktail to press and VIP’s at the pop-up bar on board the forts, they also win a coveted prize given to only the most fearsome of Kraken hunters…

The Kraken Rum Edible Autopsy will also be held on the forts and will see invited guests feasting on the remains of a Kraken corpse as it is dissected in front of their eyes. Following this, a film of the autopsy, and remains of the corpse, will be displayed at The Kraken Rum supported event ‘Feed The Beast’ – a rum-based extreme cake pop-up from with the infamous Eat Your Heart Out food artists’ network.
The competition will take place at Happiness Forgets, Hoxton Square, London on Tuesday 8th October – anyone interested in taking part should email, for full details and competition T&C’s.
