Alipus Mezcal Joven - San Baltazar Guelavila: Fermented in pine vats & distilled by Don Cosme Hernandez from Agave Espad??n grown at about 5700 feet in hilly, white, & rocky soil. Delicate and fruity, slightly sweet.
Alipus Mezcal offerings are 100% Agave produced in remote pueblos in Oaxaca's noted Mezcal region, via craft production from artisanal family distilleries. Agaves are wood-roasted in palenques (conical below-ground ovens), with juice extraction by slow stone-milling (tahona). Fermentation takes place with native yeasts in open wooden vats, and is completed by double-distillation in small wood-fired copper pot stills.
