"Mezcal is the oldest spirit of Mexico. It dates back to the early 1500s when the Spanish Conquistadors applied fermentation and distillation techniques to the native drink, pulque. Tequila is mezcal’s younger brother. Technically, tequila is a kind of mezcal, one in which you can only use the blue agave, and that today is more of an industrial product. With tequila, typically the agaves are steam cooked in industrial autoclaves and the juice is distilled in large industrial stills. "Ilegal Mezcal Joven is a perfect balance of espadin agave and light smoke. Deep agave aroms, hints of baked apple and white pepper. Lingering heat and sweet agave throughout. Surprising elegance. Exceptional for sipping or in cocktails. A young mezcal double and triple distilled. Smoke, pungent Espadin agave, pepper, heat and long finish." -The Importer
