Around 2004, Ilegal's founder John Rexer began bringing mezcal down from Oaxaca to Antigua to supply his bar, Café No Sé. The mezcal became popular very quickly. At the time, he was bringing down unbranded mezcal from a variety of villages in Oaxaca that included: Tlacolula, San Lorenzo, Sola De Vega, Santa Catarina Minas, Hierve el Agua, Santiago Matatlan and a few others.
In 2006, John created the brand Ilegal, originally just to supply his bar in Guatemala. On the back of each bottle of Ilegal you will find it says "Originally produced for: Café No Sé, Mezcal Bar."

Over the past 25 years, we've carried this same spirit in the way we brew our beer - shaking up classic styles, using unusual ingredients, and learning from experimentation. We push creativity beyond the brews. Each beer label is made by our in-house team who pull inspiration from design, photography, clay, paint, needlepoint, and even the occasional tattoo.
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is America’s Original Craft Vodka. In 1995, Bert “Tito” Beveridge obtained the first legal permit to distill in Texas and created Tito’s Handmade Vodka. We batch distill our corn-based vodka using old-fashioned pot stills and the vodka is naturally Gluten-Free. Tito’s Handmade Vodka is distilled and bottled by Fifth Generation Inc. in Austin, Texas on the very same land where the whole venture started.
Slane Irish Whiskey is a smooth spirit of natural character with untamed notes of oak and spice from our signature triple casked blend of virgin, seasoned, and sherry casks. Virgin and seasoned casks are raised by hand at the Brown-Forman Cooperages while Sherry casks are provided by way of Spain. The quality of barrels and mastery of aging and blending results in an exceptionally complex, smooth Irish whiskey worthy of the name.

San Juan Seltzer
The inspiration for San Juan Seltzer happened during a girl’s weekend at my family home in the San Juan Islands. That evening while sitting on the back deck, my girlfriends and I shared the beauty of the Pacific Northwest islands while sipping on, low calorie sparkling cocktails it hit me. At that moment, I knew I needed to create San Juan Seltzer and share our experience with the rest of the world.

For more than 40 years, VWC-CPA has had our heads down, working hard, helping our clients to succeed—however they define that. Of course we do all the basics right: tax returns, financial statements, estate planning.
