  • To find out when your bottle of Kahlúa was produced please read the Lot code which is printed on the bottom edge of the label on the backside of the bottle. You will find a code consisting of numbers and letter e.g. L3043FJ 12:01. The code in this example stands 12th of February 2013. The second character in the example “3” indicates the last digit of the year it was produced. The following 3 digits indicate the day in the year (Julian date) and the last 4 digits indicate the time of day.

  • There is no lot code printed on the back label of my bottle of Kahlua. There is a code printed near the neck of the bottle L110900 with 1208 underneath it. What does that mean? So is the production date April 19, 2001 at 12:08 AM? Or is it April 19, 2011 12:08 PM? I believe it was purchased at Aldi in Indianapolis, Indiana.

    Hi Ggivensjr,

    Most lot codes for the Kahlua plant is stated like this:


    What size is it on the bottle and can you describe the bottle? For example does it have a red ribbon on front of bottle with a little wax button?

    Best,
    Natalie - Team Kahlua"

    Bottle size is 375ML(12.7Fl. OZ.) The bottle dark brown.
    There is red ribbon that starts under the seal just below the screw off cap and goes down front of bottle under the "Imported" red label and under the main Kahlua label (yellow with red KAHLUA). And yes there is brown wax button letter K. On back label there is instructions for making a Kahlua Mudslide and Kahlua White Russian and raised Kahlua is near top of bottle. On underside (bottom) of bottle there is what looks like an anchor but could be double J one flipped right to left and number 40 to right of anchor, 15, 30, 00 the 30 is lower than 15 and 00.

  • Hi,

    The last production of this type of bottle was back in 2012/2013. Shelf life for Kahlua is 4 years for best optimal flavor.

    I do not know the exact production date without the lot code.

    Best Regards, Team Kahlua

  • Here are pictures of front and back of bottle. The only code I can find is on the back on left shoulder of bottle. It reads L110900 and under it is 1208 in very faint dot matrix type print.

  • Hi,

    This may be a bottle from 2001. Is the product is 53proof? Then I will guess that this is 2001. We stopped producing 53proof (26.5%ABV) in the early 2000’s.

    Best Regards,
    Natalie - Team Kahlua
    Natalie
  • Can I assume it has gone bad or has at least lost its potency by now?
    George
  • Yes it is 53 proof and 26.5 ABV.
    George
  • Hi,

  • Thank you I have discarded it.
    I bought new bottle yesterday.
    Lot # L9252FJ2313. What is best by date?


    George
  • Hi George,

    Kahlua does not have a “Best Buy“ date. Shelf life is 4 years.
