This Alipus San Juan del Rio mezcal is an espadin mezcal owned by the Cruz family. The Cruz distilery has four copper pots. It’s a co-op: the whole clan makes use of them, and so do several outsiders.

This mezcal is distinguished by the conditions of the plants location in reddish and white soils, and long fermentation periods, which will mark the mineral and chalky tones.

Alipus mezcal first began in 1999 as a "social impact project" with the aim of supporting traditional mezcal producers and their lands in several regions in Oaxaca, Mexico. That has now grown to an amazing 9 independent producers in the state, all of which contribute to the development of their respective rural economies.

AROMA: Caramel, roasted maguey, citrus, spices and herbs.
TASTE: Herbal and mineral notes. Light, rugged flavors. Fresh acidity with medium lingering flavour.
ENJOY: Sipping mezcal is enjoyed slowly and with friends. Enchiladas mineras, scrambled eggs, aged cheese, garnachas istmeñas (meat pies).
