You left off the asterisks
** Certified by other agencies when bearing kashrus symbol.

They dont mention who certifies it, though. I guess it might be one of the Mexican hashgachas
It's under "Kashrut Maguen David" as moish said.  I don't think they put their logo on the bottles though.

On the same topic diff drink.

On the star list it shows that Cristal Aguardiente or as they spell it aguadriente is not kosher.

Does anyone know if that's only the Cristal brand? Does anyone know of a kosher aguardiente?
Its an anise flavored drink. Much diff then Arak. It is the official drink of Colombia. any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

BUMP

Anybody have any updated info on this topic? Is Kahlua sold in Mexico currently kosher? And if yes, does it need to have a specific kashrus logo on it to be kosher, or all Kahlua sold in Mexico is kosher regardless of the labeling?

It is kosher.
http://star-k.com/cons-appr-liquor.htm
Kahlua: Approved: Please note that Kahlua Liqueur, which states on the label, that it is “BOTTLED in Mexico” is now acceptable.
Labels which state “PRODUCT of Mexico” but are “Bottled in the USA” may not be used at the present time.

I know this was mentioned before  (back in 2011)- but according to the London Beis Din (http://www.kosherliquorlist.com/product_info.php?products_id=419) and I personally confirmed with higher ups in the OU that all Kahlua purchased outside the US is acceptable.  Kahlua manufactured in US is produced on the same lines as mudslides and has caramel coloring added.  I receive bottles of Kahlua from Europe from people who work in Kashrus.

My understanding is that it must say "original" on it to be kosher.

What about the Kahlua Turin chocolates, does anyone know if they are kosher?  How about If purchased outside the states?

kahlua's website currently says "The Kahlua bottle size produced in Mexico is a 980ml, and only this bottle size is Kosher."
can anyone who's bought this in mexico confirm that it was 980ml?
has anyone gotten a bottle that (they think or know) was bottled in mexico and i was a different size?

OT but does anybody know what the taxes will be if I bring a half dozen bottles of Kahlua over the border at the Nogales (AZ) crossing? I think only one bottle per person is tax-free.
