tuKola is a cola brand produced and marketed in Cuba by the Los Portales SA (a joint venture with Nestle Group) at their facilities in Guane, Pinar del Rio since the 1980s (then made by Empresa de Bebidas y Licores de Pinar del Río).[1]

The drink is available in many resorts catering to foreign tourist and cheaper than import Coca Cola products. TuKola has been exported outside of Cuba by third parties and sold online from suppliers mainly in Miami, Florida.
