Now I know you can visit plenty of wineries, breweries, and distilleries around the world. But my favourite alcoholic beverage is Kahlúa, a coffee liqueur from Mexico exported around the world.

Does anybody know if it's possible for any random person, or also only under some special circumstances if that's the case, to tour the place where they make Kahlúa?

The company site doesn't mention anything, in fact I can't even find where in Mexico it's distilled/manufactures/bottled other than on the label it just says its a product of Mexico.

I believe the distillery is in Mexico City... however, I have no information on tours. – Ginamin Oct 3 '11 at 1:16

@Ginamin: I had heard it was in Puebla but never managed to verify it. – hippietrail Oct 3 '11 at 8:10

Fake it till you make it. These days just saying you're a travel blogger can get you preferential treatment ;) – Mark Mayo Oct 3 '11 at 8:14

An e-mail to Kahlúa asking about tours was answered with:

Thanks for your email and your interest in Kahlúa.

Unfortunately we don't currently offer a tour of the Kahlúa facilities.

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

Best regards

Contacting Aaron Vanek who wrote an article with about a tour of the factory may give you a good start.
