    KAHLÚA HISTORY

    In the 17th century, a family recipe for a coffee liqueur was created. Rum-based, it was spiced with vanilla.

    It wasn’t until the 1950s that the family decided to commercialized the recipe, and the Tia Maria brand was born [source].

    But before Tia Maria was launched to the public, Kahlúa was launched in Veracruz, Mexico, when the Alvarez brothers, local coffee roasters, and a local businessman, Señor Blanco, decided to combine efforts.

    The Alvarez brothers suggested adding coffee flavor to a liquor Blanco was in the process of developing. The spirit developed by Blanco in 1930, was changed by a chemist, Montalvo Lara, and has been manufactured since 1936.

    The Black Russian cocktail was invented in Belgium in 1948 or 1949. The White Russian Cocktail wass invented in Oakland, California in 1955 [source].
    How is Kahlúa made?

  • Coffee beans are dried, de-husked and aged for half a year, then roasted, ground and brewed.
  • Sugar cane spirit is produced from the harvested sugar cane; then crushed, juiced and reduced to molasses.
  • Water and yeast are added to ferment the mixture into alcohol. The cane spirit is combined with the brewed coffee extract, plus caramel and vanilla flavors.
  • After resting for eight weeks, the Kahlua is filtered, bottled and ready to distribute.

    What does “Kahlúa” mean?

    As homage to coffee’s Arabic origins, the name Kahlúa” derives from the word “kahwa,” which is Arabic slang for coffee.

    The brand, which is now owned by Pernod Ricard, sold 160 million cases worldwide in 2018 [source]. It is #1 coffee liqueur.
