What is Kahlua? It is a coffee liqueur, which is prepared on the basis of rum. The drink came to us from Hawaii. According to historical sources, it has been prepared on the islands since the second half of the 19th century, but its popularity came later. In its modern form, the drink became known in 1936, when the Alvarez brothers, who lived in Veracruz, Mexico, prepared this beautiful liqueur from locally sourced ingredients.
In the 1940s, active exports to the U.S. began, where the liquor immediately found thousands of fans. Twenty years later, the liquor manufacturer began to pay more attention to advertising the drink, which played a huge role in its distribution. Already in the 1980s, it was Kahlua that became the best coffee alcoholic drink in the world, and its sales were steadily increasing!
- Kahlua ranks 6th in sales among the broad category of liqueurs. At last count, more than a million and a half cases of the drink were sold in 2002.
- In addition to liquor, the manufacturer produces its own chocolates filled with liquor.
- In the 1960s, the liquor company was run by six women, nicknamed the “Ladies of Kahlua. This peculiarity played into the hands of the drink’s popularity, since women in the field of alcohol production (especially in managerial positions) at the time were a rarity.
