Staff Review: So what is the Alipus label and what does it represent in the world of mezcal? Alipus is a series made from contracted mezcales, purchased and marketed by the Danzantes group in Oaxaca, and imported into California by Craft Distillers. Each label corresponds to a specific village where the producer is located. All of them are made entirely from Espadin agave (with the exception of the San Andres that has a smidge of something else thrown in during fermentation). The point is to show the geographical differences that terroir, fermentation, and water ultimately play in the flavor of each spirit. Other than the three main factors I just mentioned, they're all basically produced the same way-made from Espadin agave roasted in an open pit, fermented in used wood, and double-distilled in a wood-fired pot still. The producers in San Juan del Rio make a clean and focused mezcal with soft fruit and subtle smoke.

Tasting Notes: Fruity, rich, smokey, pleasantly sweet.
