These are four 1954 magazine advertisements for Kahlua Liqueur produced in Mexico. -- Kahlúa is a Mexican coffee-flavored rum-based liqueur. It is dense and sweet, with the distinct taste of coffee, from which it is made. Kahlúa also contains sugar, corn syrup and vanilla bean. Pedro Domecq began producing Kahlúa in 1936. Its name, meaning "House of the Acolhua people" in the Veracruz Nahuatl language spoken before the Spanish Conquest. Such a name choice was presumably chosen to provide a Veracruzan identity to the product and feature its originality. The company merged in 1994 with Allied Lyons to become Allied Domecq. In turn, that company was partially acquired in 2005 by Pernod Ricard, now the largest spirits distributor in the world since its merger with the Swedish Vin & Sprit in March 2008.
