A Brief History of Kahlúa, Mexico’s Most Famous Liqueur

Kahlúa is a staple bottle behind any bar and the world’s best-selling coffee liqueur but very few people realise that this creamy drink, a key ingredient in the White Russian cocktail, originates from Mexico. Here’s a brief history of this popular coffee drink, including some fun facts that you might not know.

What is Kahlúa?

Made from an expert combination of coffee, rum, corn syrup and vanilla bean (which is another traditional Mexican ingredient), Kahlúa is a sweet and rich coffee-flavoured liqueur that adds a kick to any cocktail and is the perfect after-dinner tipple. However, it’s this combination of several typically Mexican ingredients that means, from start to finish, a bottle of Kahlúa takes up to seven years to produce, principally due to the growing and harvesting of the coffee beans used to give it that signature coffee kick.
