About this product +

Producer >

Desperate for a good Mezcal to stock at his bar, Café No Sé, John Rexer began smuggling artisanal Mezcal from Oaxaca to Guatemala in 2004. Once in his bar, it didn't take long for word to get out about this smooth and smoky spirit that was only available from the backroom at Café No Sé. Soon, this Mezcal was being carried in the luggage of travellers passing from Guatemala to America and beyond. In late 2009, Ilegal Mezcal became legal and today is available in the USA, Australia, Europe and the Caribbean. Mezcal was named Vino de Mezcal by the Spanish as it was made under specific vintage conditions with characters relating to a particular harvest. Like the original Mezcals, Ilegal is produced and hand bottled in small batches, with each bottle receiving its own number within a specifically numbered lot. Unlike Tequila, Mezcal is not constrained to using only Blue Agave. Mezcal can use a much greater variety of agave species giving rise to the broader style and flavour profiles found within the mezcal category. Ilegal predominantly uses the Espadin Agave. There are three expressions in the Ilegal range: the unaged Joven, the four month aged Reposado, and the 13 month aged Añejo. All products in the range are bottled at 40% ABV. These are Mezcals are the best in the business.

Viticulture >

All Ilegal Mezcal bottles are made with 100% post-consumer recycled (PCR) glass that would otherwise remain in landfills.

Winemaking >

Unaged Full bodied agave flavor. Light smoke, lingering heat.
