The Kraken Sea Beast despises traditional romance, pink hearts and flowers and has been known to devour lovebirds in one swallow, washing them down with its Black Spiced Rum. This Valentine’s, The Kraken® Rum opened its doors to the ultimate in Anti-Valentine’s celebrations.

The Kraken Black Hearts event, which took place on Wednesday night at J.T. Pim’s was an alternative date night for couples, singles and friends who are fed up with clichéd Valentine’s traditions. The platitudes so anger the Beast that he is famous for consuming ill-fated sailors attempting to make it home to their loved ones from the dark seas, leaving behind many a hapless widow.

This unique and intimate event saw guests welcomed by the Kraken Widow, a lonely and heartbroken soul who lost her husband, a brave sea captain, to The Kraken. The Kraken Widow desperately searched for visitors to hear her tales of woe and help save her from her misery.

Guests were served the most delectable and delicious Kraken cocktails amidst black roses and candlelight. The Perfect Storm, with The Kraken, ginger beer and freshly squeezed lime wedges was served on arrival, followed by more devilish cocktail options once inside. Imported from the Caribbean and carefully blended with secret spices, The Kraken Black Spiced Rum is strong, rich, black, and smooth. It is not for the weak of spirit.

Mirroring the opaque heart of The Kraken Widow, a decadent all-black menu was created from black ingredients. Guests were kept on their toes with surprises and shocks from The Kraken throughout the dusky night.
