Tia Maria is a cold-brew coffee liqueur with a complex aromatic structure.
Tia Maria's origins date back to the mid-17th century, when a beautiful young Spanish aristocrat called Mafe fled the turmoil that the colonial war brought to the island of Jamaica. Her maid saved one family treasure, a small jewellery box with black pearl earrings and an ancient manuscript with the recipe for a mysterious liqueur. The recipe was named after the courageous woman. Tia Maria was born. The recipe laid dormant for many years before being rediscovered in the 1940s by Dr. Kenneth Leigh Evans, who began to produce and market it.
Nowadays, by using cold brew extraction, Tia Maria can always ensure that its coffee liqueur has a distinct taste, thanks to a unique combination of three core elements:
100% Arabica coffee - Giving that distinctive roasted, full-bodied, rich taste.
Madagascar Vanilla - Adding softness and giving everything a unique roundness, uniting flavours and providing persistency.
Jamaican rum - lending Tia Maria its body, depth and structure.
