Ilegal Mezcal, Reposado is an elegant, rounded, rich mezcal with rich spicy-fruity notes and nuances of smoke in taste and aroma. The process of creating mezcal is completely manual, traditionally handicraft. For the manufacture of mezcal, agave Espadine is taken, which is baked in conical earthen ovens, heated by eucalyptus and mesquite wood. Baked agave is crushed with millstones and placed in oak fermentation tanks. Alcohols undergo double distillation in small-sized copper cubes. Aged in American oak barrels with a volume of 200 liters of medium roast lasts 4 months. In the production of mescal, artificial dyes, yeast, flavors and other additives are not used. Only agave, sun and time.
In Mexico, mezcal (also known as mezcal de agave) is a distilled alcoholic beverage derived from the agave plant, a slow-growing succulent that is native to Mexico and parts of Texas and is used to make mezcal. Mezcal was first produced in the 16th century by the conquistadors, who, as invading armies are wont to do in hostile territory, made getting drunk a top priority and experimented with distilling whiskey from whatever they could find in the area they were occupying.
The history of mezcal-making evolved over time to become an essential element of Mexican culture, but it wasn't until Prohibition drove thirsty American visitors to Mexico in pursuit of a legal buzz that mezcal became widely known to drinkers in the United States and around the world.
Mezcal can be prepared from any of the more than 30 different types of agave. Tobalá, tobaziche, tepeztate, arroqueo, and espadn are the most frequent agave varieties used for mezcal production. Espadn is the most prevalent agave variety and accounts for up to 90 percent of all mezcal production.
