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 Río Province, 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 tourists and cheaper than imported Coca-Cola products. TuKola has been exported outside of Cuba by third parties and sold online from suppliers mainly in Miami, Florida.

Product lines[edit]

The cola is sold in 355mL cans, 330mL bottles and 1.5L plastic bottles.[2]
