Product Description

Interested in trying the lush flavors of mezcal for the first time? Why not begin your adventure with a bottle of Ilegal Mezcal Joven.

Ilegal, as its name implies, got its start on the wrong side of the law. Founded by spirits enthusiast and bar owner John Rexer, the company traces its origins from his desire to enjoy exquisite agave spirits with his friends. Traveling to Mexico, he began smuggling mezcals back to Guatemala which he then served to friends as well as patrons of his bar, Café No Sé. Soon enough, people caught wind of his exploits and began visiting his bar with some even smuggling his spirits themselves back to their home countries, including the US.

Rexer has since moved on from his criminal ways and has since been legally producing mezcal under his own, albeit ironic, brand name. Among these is the Ilegal Mezcal Joven, an un-aged expression designed for first-time drinkers and cocktail connoisseurs. Made from 100% Espadin agave, the mezcal begins with the agave hearts being roasted in an earthen pit before being crushed using a traditional volcanic tahona stone, fermented, and then double-distilled. The distillate is then brought to proof using pure water and bottled, preserving its youthful and expressive flavor profile.

Each sip of this clear mezcal greets you with an invigorating nose bursting with notes of eucalyptus, roasted agave, tobacco, flowers, and an earthy minerality which pave the way for a sweet and vibrant palate of green apples, fresh citrus, red chiltepe, caramel, dried herbs, and light smoke, all culminating into a lingering finish of wet earth and lemon zest with a noticeable alcohol warmth.

Exceptional when mixed and perfect on its own, the Ilegal Mezcal Joven is the perfect way to get acquainted with tequila’s captivating cousin. So pick up a bottle or two today and get on with enjoying every drop of this fine Mexican spirit.
