In a world first, a FLORIST SELLING FLOWERS AS DARK AS THE KRAKEN’S INK, pops up in London this Valentine’s Day.
The pop-up florist forms part of The Kraken Rum’s KRAKEN VERSUS CUPID campaign, by macabre and infamous Miss Cakehead. Found in Kingley Court, just off Carnaby Street, London, the Think Ink florist is open for one day only – the 14th February 2014 – offering a range of black floral options in return for a voluntary donation to the Project Redsand charity.
There are no naturally black flowers – a truly black flower is as mysterious and alluring as a Kraken – with the endangered very dark crimson Turkish Halfeti roses the closest nature can offer. However the bouquets will also feature Calendula Lily Eclips and Queen of the Night Tulips, both darkest purple in colour looking visually black to the human eye.
Kept fresh in pools of black ink, the flowers all come with a miniature bottle of 5cl Kraken Rum, available in the UK from Summer 2014. Currently Kraken Rum is only available in 70cl bottles.
What’s more the London based The Diner group will be serving a one off Kraken Vs Cupid Valentine’s drink in all of their 7 venues, a perfect location in which to celebrate an alternative Valentine’s Day.
The Think Ink Florist will be open from 0800 until all the bouquets are sold, they are offered on a first come first served basis with one bouquet per customer. Due to the accompanying rum only those aged 18 or over may purchase a bouquet. It can be found in unit 1.16, Kingley Court, W1B 5PW.
