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.
Producer Notes: Ilegal Mezcal
Ilegal Mezcal is a premium spirits producer that specializes in the production of mezcal, a traditional Mexican spirit made from the agave plant. The company was founded in 2006 by John Rexer, an American expat who fell in love with the culture and traditions of Oaxaca, Mexico.
Ilegal Mezcal is based in Oaxaca, which is known as the “mezcal capital” of Mexico. The company sources its agave from small, family-owned farms in the region, and uses traditional production methods to create its mezcal. The agave is roasted in underground pits, which gives the spirit its distinctive smoky flavor, and then distilled in copper stills.
Ilegal Mezcal offers a range of different mezcal varieties, each with its own unique flavor profile. The company’s flagship product is its Joven mezcal, which is unaged and has a smooth, smoky flavor. Ilegal also produces Reposado and Añejo mezcal, which are aged in oak barrels for varying lengths of time to give them a more complex flavor.
In addition to its mezcal, Ilegal also produces a range of other spirits, including gin and rum. The company’s gin is made with a blend of botanicals, including juniper, coriander, and cardamom, and has a crisp, refreshing flavor. Ilegal’s rum is made with sugar cane from Guatemala, and has a rich, caramel flavor.
Ilegal Mezcal has gained a reputation as one of the top mezcal producers in Mexico, and its products are now available in bars and restaurants around the world. The company has also been recognized for its commitment to sustainability and social responsibility, and works closely with local communities to support economic development and environmental conservation efforts.

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.
