Looking to introduce friends and loved ones to the superb flavors of mezcal? Then go the safe route and treat them to the lush agave flavors of Ilegal Mezcal Joven. Ilegal Mezcal started as a spirit that was smuggled from Mexico to Guatemala by John Rexer and shared among friends at a tiny bar called Café No Sé. Among them is the Ilegal Mezcal Joven, Ilegal Anejo Mezcal, and the Ilegal Reposado Mezcal. Made from 100% Espadin agave, the mezcal begins with agave hearts which are roasted for up to 7 days in earthen pits, crushed with a tahona wheel, fermented, and then double-distilled in copper stills. Now available in both 375ml and 750ml, Ilegal Mezcal is a delightful spirit with a wide appeal, you’ll never go wrong with giving a bottle of Ilegal Mezcal as a gift this holiday season.


On the nose, the mezcal opens up with notes of roasted agave and eucalyptus accented by flowers, pipe tobacco, and an earthy minerality. This is complemented by a sweet and lively palate of fresh citrus, green apples, caramel, dried herbs, and touches of smoke, all wrapped up by a persistent finish of lemon zest, wet earth, and warming alcohol.

DEWAR’S 15, created by DEWAR’S master blender Stephanie Macleod, has been matured in sherry and bourbon casks and, once blended, put back into specially selected oak casks to marry for greater smoothness and a longer, lingering finish. The blend features tasting notes of h o n e y, g o l d e n t o f f e e , w a r m a n d c o m p l ex , a l o n g w i t h r i c h s u c c u l e n t exotic fruits with hints of coconut and vanilla aromas including citrus and green apple notes and lest we forget the delicate and exquisitely scented floral aromas with a smooth, well-round and long and warming finish.


Called “The Monarch”, DEWAR’S 15 was named after the famous 1851 painting “The Monarch of the Glen” by Sir Edwin Landseer, which was purchased in 1916 by John Dewar ’s and Sons. DEWAR’S 15 is the perfect gift this holiday season, rare and unique with specialty packaging for gifting, while the other marques are excellent ways to enjoy DEWAR’S all year long.

In addition to more traditional botanicals, we add a signature blend of black tea served at the Empress Hotel, and butterfly pea blossom, an exotic herb that balances the traditional citrus notes of gin with a warm herbal earthiness, and natural indigo colour.
