Tia Maria is giving away 10,000 Espresso Martinis

Tia Maria is celebrating International Coffee Day on Sunday October 1, 2023, by giving away 10,000 complimentary Espresso Martinis at selected bars across Australia.

The ‘Tia-Tini’ is Tia Maria’s take on Australia’s favourite cocktail, the Espresso Martini. The drink was created in 1983 by British barman Richard ‘Dick’ Bradsell, who used Tia Maria in his original recipe, mixing it with espresso, vodka and simple syrup.

Tia Maria features 100% Arabica coffee, Madagascar vanilla and Jamaican rum.

Australian ‘Maria’, Maria Thattil has joined with Tia Maria for the International Coffee Day celebration. The author, media personality, columnist, TedX speaker, ex-Miss Universe Australia and coffee lover is calling all Marias (and Marias at heart) to “get your Tia on us”.

“Tia Maria was on our shelves at home, I grew up seeing my folks enjoy it and I developed a taste for it,” Thattil said.

“And why wouldn’t I? It’s such a luxe yet accessible and familiar drink. Who hasn’t had a Tia! Today, I drink my Tia tipple classic style – the Espresso Martini is my go-to when I want a smooth coffee pick-me-up or when I’m hosting friends … it just feels like an instant party.”

Claim your Tia-Tini between 1-15 October 2023 by signing up at and searching for your nearest participating bar. Once you’ve enjoyed your cocktail, take a photo of the receipt and upload it to the website to receive your cash back.
