Alipus San Baltazar is a great espadin mezcal that is produced by Don Cosme Hernandez and his son Cirilo. They ferment their mezcal in very old pine vats. Alipus San Baltazar is soft, well-fruited with good minerality. The San Baltazar is the most popular Alipus mezcal in Mexico, making it more rare to come by here in Australia.

San Baltazar has an altitude of 4100 feet and is rolling hilly countryside. The soils are light (calciferous) and shaly/rocky.

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: Hints of lime, pineapple, orange and guava. Herbal notes such as Mexican tarragon, with floral overtones of Mexican marigold.
TASTE: Citrus, with heavy emphasis on roasted maguey and banana. Medium acidity with strong lingering flavour.
ENJOY: Sipping mezcal is enjoyed slowly and with friends.
