From the distillery; Legendary Kahlúa was born in Mexico
We've all had those evenings when your friend Steve enthusiastically cries out 'let's open a bar!'. The day after though, you return to your day job. The story of Kahlúa begins in 1936 when two dudes, Senior Blanco, Montalvo Lara and the Alvarez brothers, decided to go with their gut feeling. One of the guys had a great idea, two of them forked out rich and tasteful Arabica coffee, the second was a chemist who turned the idea into reality. Kahlúa is crafted from the finest ingredients that grow side by side in rural Veracruz, Mexico. The actual word Kahlúa has ties to ancient Arabic languages and is said to be slang for coffee. Yes, there was already street lingo in the 30's.
In the 60's, Kahlúa received a different kind of attention, not from our ads, but rather the all female leadership. Apparently this was quite unique in the 60's
If you weren't drinking a liqueur cocktail in the 80's, you probably weren't there. In 1980, Kahlúa became the number one selling coffee liqueur in the world. While copycat brands were trying to figure out how we did it, our famous Kahlúa ladies were hosting coffee breaks with live music. Livin' it up.
