ALIPUS

You think that you know what traditional craft distillation looks like? So did I… until I was introduced to the real artisans of Los Danzantes from Oaxaca, Mexico. Holy frijole these guys are rockin’ it “old school” using methods that put others to shame. In the desert mountains of Oaxaca they hand-harvest a blend of 12-year old agave’ plants by machete and roast it for three days in wood-fired pits to caramelize the natural sugars. They press grind the agave’ hearts under a mule-turned stone mill to extract the golden juices and pulp-ferment it in wooden barrels with natural, local, Oaxaca yeasts. They even transfer the yeast from batch to batch—just like making fine sourdough bread—so that the best yeast from the best batches is the one that is used again and again.

What does Alipus taste like?

The Flavour Spiral™ shows the most common flavours that you'll taste in Alipus mezcal and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavour Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
