ILEGAL MEZCAL

OLD ENOUGH TO KNOW BETTER,

YOUNG ENOUGH TO DO IT AGAIN.

THE STORY

A beautifully balanced mezcal with a notorious history that includes smuggling and weeklong parties

in a clandestine bar and music hub in Antigua, Guatemala.

THREE DISTINCT PRODUCTS

JOVEN Un-aged. Full bodied agave flavor. Eucalyptus and mineral aromas compliment hints of green apple, fresh citrus, and red chiltepe. Light smoke. Lingering heat. Ideal for cocktails or perfect on its own.

REPOSADO Aged for 4 months in medium-charred American Oak. Caramelized pear and bitter orange on the nose. Clove, butterscotch, and hints of vanilla on the palate. Velvety throughout. An exceptional drinking mezcal.

AÑEJO Aged for thirteen months in American Oak, French Oak, and used bourbon casks. A gorgeous spirit rivaling the world’s finest scotches and cognacs. Maple, clove, and bitter orange aromas. Dark chocolate and sweet agave on the palate. Rounded. Full. Rich. Yet still untamed.


THE CRAFT

INGREDIENTS: OAXACAN SUN, AGAVE, TIME

Commitment to quality is apparent in every step of our process, from harvest to first sip. Our artisanal mezcal is produced in small lots - each bottle is hand corked, labeled, and numbered. Our fourth-generation mezcaleros use only perfectly ripe Espadín agave, double distilled in the Tlacolula Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico.
