All about making whisky
Produced by Don Joel Antonion Cruz in the same palanquero as Los Danzantes, Alipus San Juan del Rio is distilled from 100% espadin agave. Sweet, fruity, rich and very delicately smoky on the nose (and even more so on the palate), it is by far the smokiest in the Alipus range. The result of a long fermentation, it is also extremely complex and progressive.

Alipus offers a small range of mezcals distilled in the Oaxaca region of Mexico, at three mezcalerias in the villages of San Juan del Rio, San Baltazar Guelvila and Xitlapehua. Once cooked, the agaves (100% espadin variety) are left in the open air to be fermented naturally by indigenous yeasts. A double distillation is carried out in small, wood-fired pot stills. Each master distiller has their own production methods: fermentation vats in oak, pine or cypress, stills of various shapes and sizes, not forgetting the expression of the terroir and climate through the agave. The result is three very different mezcals.
