National Kahlua Day 2023: Date, History, Facts about Kahlua

National Kahlua Day is observed annually on February 27 as a tribute to one of the finest rich, creamy, alcoholic coffee dessert beverages — Kahlua, of course! Did you know that Kahlua is the most popular coffee liqueur in the world? People adore this coffee-flavored liqueur made with rum.


A glass of Kahlua is perhaps the best example of a moderately immoral beverage that is favoured by many people. Kahlua is a liqueur with a coffee flavour that originated in Hawaii. It is composed of sugar cane, rum, and coffee. Some people interpret the Hawaiian word ‘Kahlua’ as ‘lemonade,’ which makes sense given that it tastes like a combination of espresso and lemonade.

Since 1869, to be precise, Kahlua has reportedly been produced. The origins of Kahlua, however, can be traced back to its creation in 1936. Senior Blanco and Montalvo Lara, also referred to as the Alvarez brothers, were the inventors. One was a culinary inventor who conceived the concept of flavorful Arabica coffee, while the other was a chemist. Together, they crafted Kahlua from the finest ingredients that thrive adjacently in rural Veracruz.

In 1940, Kahlua was exported to the United States, where it quickly gained popularity. In the 1960s, the Kahlua corporation pioneered a female leadership position and a creative advertising campaign. This received media coverage.

Later in the 1980s, Kahlua rose in prominence and became the world’s most popular coffee liqueur. Today, Kahlua is a brand with a remarkable and unique history. It is adored by numerous individuals around the globe. Kahlua is the most well-known of all Hawaiian alcoholic beverages, and there are numerous methods to enjoy it. However, remember to drink and celebrate in moderation.


In the Veracruz Nahuatl language, the term ‘Kahlua’ means ‘House of the Acolhua people’

Seven years are required to produce one bottle of Kahlua.

Contrary to popular belief, Kahlua was first produced in Veracruz, Mexico, not the United States.

Current versions of Kahlua contain approximately 20% alcohol, whereas earlier versions had 26%.

The Black Russian, the most popular Kahlua drink in the world, was introduced in 1949.
