Ilegal Mezcal is a beautifully balanced spirit with a legendary history that includes smuggling and weeklong parties in Café No Sé, a clandestine bar and music hub in Antigua, Guatemala. Ilegal is delicious, approachable, and perfect for drinking neat or in cocktails and is made ‘Sin Prisa,’ without rush or hurry, and using artesanal methods. Ilegal’s taste profile is a mouthful of sweet agave with a hint of smoke. It is available in Joven, Reposado and Anejo expressions nationally across the U.S.
