Ilegal Mezcal Añejo
About the Ilegal
Around 2004, Ilegal’s founder John Rexer began bringing mezcal down from Oaxaca to Antigua, Guatemala to supply his bar, Café No Sé. Sourcing unbranded mezcal from a variety of villages in Oaxaca including: Tlacolula, San Lorenzo, Sola De Vega, Santa Catarina Minas, Hierve el Agua, Santiago Matatlan and a few others, Ilegal mezcal was born.
Ilegal mezcal, named for its illicit beginnings, is made in Oaxaca and certified Artisanal by the CRM. They are one of the few mezcals that ages their expressions, and takes pride in their reposado and añejo profiles. You’ll find hints of smoke right behind a mouthful of sweet agave.
