About Tia Maria
Tia Maria dates back to the mid-17th century, when a beautiful young Spanish aristocrat fled the turmoil colonial war brought to the island of Jamaica. Her maid saved one family treasure, a small jewelry 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 lay dormant for many years before being rediscovered in the 1940s by Dr. Kenneth Leigh Evans, who began to produce and market it. From this day forward Tia Maria has been a favorite for coffee liqueurs lovers the world over and it was even used in the very first Espresso Martini recipe over forty years ago. Their newest launch, Tia Maria Matcha, which earned a gold medal at the 2021 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, aims to refresh the brand image of Tia Maria giving new excitement to the brand and targeting the contemporary drinkers with their premium cream liqueur and natural matcha tea extract.
