Bottled at 47.5%. (Bottle size 750ml)

Nose: Caramel, roasted maguey, citrus, spices and herbs.

Palate: Herbal and mineral notes. Light, rugged flavours.

Finish: Fresh acidity with medium lingering flavour.

Founded in 1999, Alipús started out as a ‘social impact project’ that sought to support traditional producers and their lands in a number of regions. Today they work with nine mezcal producers in Oaxaca, all of which contribute to the development of rural economies.
