Named by bar proprietor, John Rexer, in reference to his efforts at smuggling the product to his Bohemian Tequila / Mezcal Bar, Cafe No Se, in Antigua, Guatemala (he was unable to import his product into the United States using the illegal name “Ilegal”). These mezcals are produced in a traditional manner using Agave Espadin, baked in a conical earth pit, using both mesquite and eucalyptus wood. The cooked Agave is then crushed by a millstone and fermented. Double distillation takes place in small, alembic copper stills. Some sediment may be apparent as a result of the handcrafted production process. Very Limited Stocks.
Clear, silvery appearance with some light sediment floating in the glass. Aromas include sweet, herbal, potpourri like scents with notes of smoldering green wood and vinyl also emerging. Semi sweet flavours of brine, eucalyptus leaf and lavender dominate. Oily, silky mouth feel. Finishes pleasantly dry with a delicate black pepper / green peppercorn fade. 40% Alc./Vol.
