Alipus San Juan Del Rio, 750ML

Alipus San Juan del Rio uses agave Espadin from non-irrigated mountain-top plantings at 4600 feet.  Alius started working with Joel Antonio Cruz. Two years ago, he made 30,000 bottles of Alipús. Rather than try to further increase production, the Cruz family decided to focus on the Mexican market and turned over distillation for export to Joel’s younger cousin Rodolfo Juan Juarez.  This Mezcal is distinguished by the conditions of the plants location in reddish and white soils, and long fermentation periods, which will mark the mineral and fruity tones in the taste.
