Product Description

Looking to introduce friends and loved ones to the superb flavors of mezcal? Then go the safe route and treat them to the lush agave flavors of Ilegal Mezcal Joven.

Founded by bar owner John Rexer, Ilegal traces its origins back to when Rexer began smuggling mezcal from Mexico to Guatemala to be enjoyed with his friends and patrons. Today, however, Rexer has put his smuggling days behind him and is the proud owner of a 100% legal enterprise that crafts superb hand-crafted mezcals for drinkers to enjoy.

Among them is the Ilegal Mezcal Joven, the brand’s take on the quintessential un-aged mezcal that serves as the perfect entry-level expression. Made from 100% Espadin agave, the mezcal begins with agave hearts which are roasted for up to 7 days in earthen pits, crushed with a tahona wheel, fermented, and then double-distilled in copper stills. The spirit is then brought to proof and bottled to retain its expressive and youthful character which works best whether it’s enjoyed neat, shot, or mixed into exquisite cocktails.

On the nose, the mezcal opens up with notes of roasted agave and eucalyptus accented by flowers, pipe tobacco, and an earthy minerality. This is complemented by a sweet and lively palate of fresh citrus, green apples, caramel, dried herbs, and touches of smoke, all wrapped up by a persistent finish of lemon zest, wet earth, and warming alcohol.

A delightful spirit with a wide appeal, you’ll never go wrong with giving a bottle of Ilegal Mezcal Joven as a gift. So send a one their way as a gesture of gratitude, a congratulatory present, or just a show of generosity and let friends and loved ones enjoy terrific taste of hand-crafted mezcal today!
