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 oak vats & distilled by Don Joel Cruz from nonirrigated agave Espadín, grown in sunny mountain-top plantings in ferriferous soil at 4600 feet. Fruity, rich, smokey, pleasantly sweet."
