Maguen david is the best mexican hashgacha, they have some mehadrin things as well. they have agood kosher list for mexican things
this is the link http://www.kosher.com.mx/

They are only recommended for their Mehadrin products, their level for non-mehadrin is very very lenient.

i'm in mexico, and see 2 types of kahlua 980ml bottles here, one looks more authentic and more expensive, the other is 2 for $27 (at a discount store), both say made in mexico.
anyone think people make fake kahlua in mexico (both stores in a reputable shopping mall (La Isla across from the Westin Lagunamar))?

you're probably just paying extra for the bottle of the more expensive one...
the ones purchased in the US are not fake, it's just that somewhere along the processing between the vats in mexico and the bottling in the US they're stored in non-kosher barrels or s/t.
Does the label say “BOTTLED in Mexico” Can you bring me back a bottle or 2?

both say made in mexico, but one has a nice kahlua K seal on front other doesnt. i will err on the side of caution.
cheap one looks like this: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/STICKER-Kahlua-Coffee-Liqueur-Bottle-for-Bar-car-window-Fridge-28cm-/170997557043?pt=AU_BarwareCollectables&hash=item27d03fa733&_uhb=1

more expensive looks like this: http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/GoodDrop-Kahlua-Mexican-Coffee-Liqueur-Twin-Pack-2-x-1-Litre-/251401058598

both 980ml, just one without the K seal.

The one my Mexican cousins bring us is the one that you are saying is more expensive (with the k seal). The other might be kosher, but I don't have any info on it.

I was there yesterday and also saw both. I asked the salesperson the difference and she said they are same thing, just one is from 2011 and one 2012 ( and you could actually see that on the monogram barcode sticker that every alcohol bottle in that country have). So I got one of each  :D

to be clear, i didnt look at those links closely, the bottles just resembled the 2 types of 980ml bottles i saw on the street here. both bottles i saw in cancun say made in mexico and are 980ml, just one looks fancier and is indeed more expensive.

to be clear... all kahlua is made in mexico... the bottles should either say "bottled in mexico" or "product of mexico"
the kosher people only recommend the bottles that are labeled "bottled in mexico"
the bottles that are labeled "product of mexico" (but are not bottled in mexico) are not recommended.

Kahlua.com claims "The Kahlua bottle size produced in Mexico is a 980ml, and only this bottle size is Kosher."
but they dont clarify if all 980ml bottles are kosher, or only the ones that are labeled 'bottled in mexico'...
 

If anyone can bring me back a kosher bottle, plz PM. thanks

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.

I don't know, but seeing as how the whole bottle only costs like 15 bucks, I doubt it'll be much. :P

From Kahlua's website forums - answered by Kahlua staff: http://contact.kahlua.com/org/kahlua/d/finding-kosher-kahlua/

Thank you for your email.

Kahlua bottles that have labelled " Hecho en Mexico" are produced in Mexico and they are Kosher certified. You can find these bottles in the US Duty free borders stores or in Mexico.Kahlua bottles in USA retail stores have labelled "Product of Mexico " & are not Kosher certified.

I hope this helps.

What is the Kosher status of Kahlua purchased at the James Richardson duty-free shop in the Ben-Gurion airport in Israel? It does not say "Hecho en Mexico" but it does say "Product of Mexico". It also says: Distributed by "Pernod Ricard Europe PR Europe, etc.". Please advise. Thank you.

I forgot to mention that the bottle has a label on it that says: "Estd. Veracruz, IMPORTED, 1936". Does this mean that the contents of this bottle are from Mexico and thus would be Kosher or is it being bottled somewhere else and due to the location of the bottling plant, not being in Mexico, the product might not be considered Kosher?

Dear Eli,

The way to know if the bottle is Kosher is the size. Mexico produces and bottles "980ml". This is the only size bottle Mexico produces and it is Kosher. Front label should say "Hecho en Mexico", the back label is in Spanish.

If the bottle states Product of Mexico, means that the concentrate is from Mexico , and it is bottled and packaged in the USA. These bottles are not Kosher certified.

I hope this helps.

Best regards,
Isabel
