In pictures: Kraken Rum takes black ice cream on the road

The Kraken Rum will be taking to the road with what it claims is the UK's first black ice cream.


The #Iscreamforkraken campaign will give consumers a taste of alcoholic pure black ice cream, with the concept of the traditional summertime ice cream van turned on its head.

The rock-inspired truck will play distorted versions of metal classics as it tours cities across the UK.

Revealed in Battersea Park today (1 June), The Kraken I Scream van will be appearing at Camden Rocks (4 June), Constellations in Liverpool (9 June), Slate NQ in Leeds (10 June), Three Sisters in Edinburgh (12 June) and Bloodstock in Derby (11-14 August).

In December The Kraken Rum hosted a black Christmas tree pop-up shop complete with black decorations.
