Alipus San Luis uses agave Espadin that is grown in sandy soil at about 4100 feet above sea level. The soils are sandy with lots of rocks, and the climate is hot. Mezcalero Don Baltazar ferments the cooked agave in 1500-liter pine vats. He distills in copper. His mezcals are rich, full-bodied, and often fruity.
Mezcal Alipus is a line of spirits produced by family-run, artisanal distilleries in the Oaxaca region of Mexico. This particular mezcal is distilled by Don Baltazar Cruz Gomez using agave espadín grown at 4000 feet, in steep and sandy soil.
The piñas are roasted in cone-shaped pit ovens dug in the ground called palenques, and the juices are pressed using stone mills. After fermentation with natural yeast in open pine vats, the juice is double-distilled in copper pot stills heated by wood fires. It is bottled unaged.
Alipus San Luis Del Rio Mezcal is spicy, round, and soft.
Cheers, and enjoy this tequila!
