In 1936, this coffee-flavored, rum-based liqueur began to be produced by Pedro Domecq in Mexico. The name "Kahlua" was chosen to commemorate the people native to the Valley of Mexico. In the ancient language, spoken long before the Spanish Conquest, it means "House of the Acohlua people." Rich and sweet, this distinct liqueur perfectly lends its flavors to our creamy, smooth cheesecakes. And, as if the taste wasn't decadent enough, we've topped it with lightly toasted fresh pecans. Kahlua may be named after the ancients, but it will be remembered for this cheesecake's taste.
