Alipus San Luis Del Rio, 750ML
Alipus San Luis uses agave Espadin that is grown in sandy soil at 4100 feet along the spreading sides of the canyon. The soils are sandy with lots of rocks, and the climate is hot, meaning lots of flavor. Don Baltazar ferments in 1500-liter pine vats. His Mezcals are rich, full-bodied, and fruity. This is not Don Baltazar’s only Mezcal on the market, and they all carry his signature flavors.
