"Ilegal Mezcal is entirely handcrafted using Agave Espadin, roasted / baked in a conical earth pit, using both mesquite and eucalyptus wood. The cooked Agave is then crushed by a millstone, and fermented in oak vats. Ilegal Mezcal is then double distilled in small, alembic copper stills. This production is much more of an art than a science, which is the beauty of age-old traditions followed by Oaxaca palenques. Looking closely at the bottle and label, the colors of the Mexican flag are present, a green wax top and red numbers. Gold embossing was used to reflect the gold of Aztecs and the Spain conquest, and the crucifix was added as a symbol used by both the Aztecs and the conquering Spaniards. Mezcal is made from the agave plant. The agave is also used to make tequila but in a different process. While tequila is made exclusively in the northwestern state of Jalisco, mexcal is made at San Luis Potosi. Although tequila is most popular consumed in the margarita, mezcal is almost exclusively served as a shooter, with or without a lick of salt and bite of lime."
