Frequently Asked Questions

Welcome to Kahlúa FAQ. Here, you’ll find the top answers to the Internet’s most asked about Kahlúa.

What's the production date of my bottle?

To find out the production date of your bottle, just drop us an email below with the LOT code of the bottle, and we'll help you find out the production date. The LOT code is a combination of letters and numbers and usually lasered onto the glass or the label.

Does Kahlúa go bad?

For Kahlúa Original, we recommend a shelf life of 4 years.

Actually, the product will be good for many more years, but the coffee impact fades over time so it won't give you the full flavor impact. Also, if you were to receive an old bottle of Kahlúa, you have to make sure it has never been opened or tampered with.

What's the shelf life of the Kahlúa Flavors?

The Kahlúa Flavors have a recommended shelf life of 2 years.

What's the shelf life of the Kahlúa Ready-to-drink (RTD's)?

The Kahlúa RTD's have a recommended shelf life of 1 year.

Where can I find the Nutritional Info for Kahlúa?

Does Kahlúa contain nuts?

Nope! There are no nuts or tree nuts of any kind in Kahlúa Original.

Is Kahlúa Vegan?

Kahlúa Original and Kahlúa Flavors are NOT acceptable for a vegan diet.

Kahlúa Ready-To-Drink (RTD's) are also not vegan, since they contain milk and/or milk proteins.

Does Kahlúa contain allergens?

No, Kahlúa Original does not contain any allergens.

But the Kahlúa Flavors should be reviewed individually. For more information, just contact us below.

Is Kahlúa Gluten free?

The processes of distillation should eliminate cereal proteins from distilled spirits drinks and therefore distilled drinks are generally accepted for a gluten-free diet.

We do not add any known gluten ingredients in Kahlúa Original or the Kahlúa Flavors. Please note however, that we cannot offer specific advice, and recommend that you discuss these matters with your medical or dietetic advisors.

Does Kahlúa contain Caffeine?

Yep. Kahlúa contains about 100 ppm caffeine, which means about 100ml/ litre of product. So, for a standard 1.5 oz drink of Kahlúa there would be about 5 mg of caffeine.

Just to put it in perspective, an 8 oz brewed coffee can contain up to about 200mg of caffeine.
