A gorgeous spirit rivaling the world’s finest scotches and cognacs. Rounded. Full. Rich. Yet untamed.
Our practices reflect our dedication to sustainability and biodiversity in the Oaxaca region. 100% natural, Ilegal uses no artificial colors, yeasts, flavors, or additives. Just agave, sun, and 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 Santiago Matatlan Valley of Oaxaca, Mexico.
Full bodied agave flavor. Light smoke, lingering heat. Ideal for cocktails or perfect on its own.
Velvety throughout. An exceptional drinking mezcal.
The fourth-generation mezcaleros who craft Ilegal use only perfectly ripe Espadín agave, double distilled in Oaxaca, Mexico.
Deforestation is a problem in the Oaxacan Region — one of the reasons all the wood we use is from certified wood farmers.
This process takes approximately 7-10 days.
Our Joven is then bottled, or put in barrels to make our Reposado & Añejo. Each bottle is hand corked, labeled, and numbered.
Our barrels are sourced from Kelvin Cooperage, a family-run business since 1963.
