Tia Maria

Tia Maria is a dark liqueur which originates from Jamaica.  Originally made using Jamaican coffee beans. The main ingredients are coffee beans, Jamaican rum, vanilla, and sugar.  ILLVA Saronno distributes this brand in over 60 countries.  Tia Maria can be consumed pure and with ice, but is also frequently used as an ingredient for cocktails (of which the Espresso Martini is popular), with coffee, or in desserts (such as the layered liqueur-whipped-cream-and-cookie confection known as Tia Maria Torte). It may also be mixed with milk and ice.  Popular Tia Maria cocktails are: Tia Espresso Martini, Dark Tia made with dark rum, Tia Maria and cola, or the Skinny Tia White Russian, made with skim milk and Tia Maria, with a splash of vodka.

Tia Maria and Disaronno are distributed by DGB in South Africa.
