Great Mezcal isn’t illegal anymore… it’s Ilegal.
One of the leading artisanal mezcals in the world, Ilegal Mezcal is crafted in Oaxaca, Mexico from sustainably sourced espadín agave with artisanal methods and ‘sin prisa’, which means without rush or hurry. A small batch Spirit, each bottle of Ilegal is hand corked, labeled, and numbered. it is smooth, approachable and ultra premium. The brand's name refers to the trips the owner John Rexer used to make when he was smuggling mezcal from Mexico to Guatemala for his bar, Café No Sé. Today, Ilegal is very much legal and focuses on providing a smooth, approachable, and ultra-premium Mezcal to share on adventures and create great stories and truth wilder than fiction.
Ilegal Mezcal Añejo is made from espadín agave that has been roasted in underground ovens in small batches and lightly smoked. The smoke is just enough to bring a complexity and richer aroma to the Spirit. It is aged for thirteen months in a combination of medium-charred American oak, medium-charred French oak and ex-Bourbon casks. The combination works really well together, bringing a deeper flavor profile than you get in some lesser Mezcals with flavors of dark chocolate, sweet agave, and a long-like-a-Monday finish.
