Think Ink Pines with Kraken Rum

Rum brand Kraken Black Spiced is subverting the usual Christmas activation with its black Christmas tree pop-up shop, Think Ink Pines. The shop sells what it claims are the world’s first real black trees, alongside black mistletoe, wreaths, holly and Poinsettia.

A festive Kraken Black Spiced Rum Bar can be found nestled within the trees.
