Alipus San Luis Del Rio, 750ML

Alipus Destilado en Barro is a very special Mezcal.  It is a small batch, rare variety that uses clay pot distillation and the rare Arroqueno agave.  There are three different mezcaleros who make this Mezcal, and the sticker on the neck of the bottle will tell you which mezcalero made that specific bottle. There are three possibilities for the mezcalero: Tio Leonardo (made by Leonardo Rojas), Tio Jesus (made by Jesus Rios), or Tio Felix (made by Felix Garcia). All three of them make their Mezcal in a similar fashion and all of the agave that is used displays a similar terrior as it is grown on a remote country hillside. This Mezcal is distilled in clay pots, which gives the Mezcal a very unique mouth feel in comparison to copper distillation.
