Mezcal Alipús San Juan del Rio
Mezcal Alipús // Oaxaca, Mexico
Alipús is made from contracted mezcal particularly distilled to express the geographical differences that terroir, fermentation, water source, and distillation play in the decisive flavor of single village distillates. They use almost exclusively the agave species espadín.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
"The aroma begins with raw fruit forward agave with floral notes of rose water and young mint. The first sip is a bit muddled although distinct notes of overripe lemon and dried parsley and sweet basil are pronounced. The finish is very enjoyable with a medium body and a low alcohol burn which concludes with a just enough smoke and black pepper to keep you coming back for another pour."
