Ilegal Reposado Mezcal is velvety throughout with a caramelised pear and bitter orange note and on the nose. It's an exceptional mezcal for those who like to drink theirs straight up.

Made in traditional way, the Espadin agave is roasted in earthen pits lined with river stones for a week, before being crushed by a horse drawn tahona. Once distilled, it's aged for four months in ex-bourbon barrels.

Key Flavours

"Although purists will assert that mezcal should not be oak-aged, I think Ilegal is a great example of a favourable outcome of aging mezcal. Enjoy it neat, or use it as a base in aromatic cocktail like the Sweet Manhattan or Old Fashioned. "

About this product

A truly special mezcal, Ilegal Reposado Mezcal is one to sip neat on a special occasion. The oak builds on the palate with vanilla and butterscotch - we like to use it in an Old Fashioned.

Ilegal Mezcal was founded in 2006 by John Rexer, who began by smuggling this product into his Bar, Cafe No Se, in Antigua, Guatemala. The brand is now part owned by Bacardi, with production headed up by Alvaro and Armando Hernandez

Ilegal Añejo Mezcal is created in Oaxaca, Mexico. Originally the founder brought down unbranded mezcal from a variety of villages in Oaxaca that included: Tlacolula, San Lorenzo, Sola De Vega, Santa Catarina Minas and a few others.
