Alipús is a social project that seeks to generate rural economy in Oaxaca through making and commercialising artisan Mezcal. These are Mezcales jóvenes (unaged), made by local farmers. Alipús San Andres is produced by Don Valente Angel, and his sons Raul, Angel, Adrian, and his very intelligent grandson Semei, who Alipús have been working with since 2009.
Tasting Note: "Fermented in cypress vats & distilled by Don Valente Angel from agave Espadín, grown at about 5000 feet on thin calciferous-soiled low hills and terraces. Complex, rich, intensely floral."
