Ilegal Añejo

70cl - 40% ABV

Ilegal Añejo is an artisanal mezcal produced in the Oaxaca region of Mexico from 100% Espadín agave. To make Ilegal Añejo, agaves are cooked in earthen pits, then crushed with a tahona and naturally fermented. After distillation, the spirit is aged for 13 months in American oak casks, resulting in a perfect balance of agave, smoke, and wood. Ilegal Añejo is excellent for sipping neat or for mixing in a rich and complex Mezcal Old Fashioned.

Tasting Notes


Oak comes to fore immediately; sweet vanilla and warming nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. However, the spirit itself is not hidden, with espadin-agave sweetness and soft wood smoke poking out from behind the cask influence.


Big, thick and rich; dried figs, currants and spiced caramel. As your palate becomes used to the flavours, gentle smoke and fruity dark chocolate notes appear, along with gently spicy white pepper.


Long and changing, with fruit, spice and leathery notes.


An excellently balanced mezcal, showing off the quality of the casks used to age it as well as the character of the spirit. Complex and easy-drinking: one to sip and contemplate.
