The Alipus Ensamble Mezcal, presented in a 750ml bottle, offers a captivating blend of flavors derived from agave Espadin and semi-wild agave Bicuishe. In addition, this mezcal showcases the evolving landscape of artisanal mezcal production, where small copper potstills have replaced traditional clay stills. These potstills are set within a masonry base, often made of clay, rock, or brick, with a wood-fired oven underneath.

The Alipus Ensamble Mezcal is a harmonious blend of 80% agave Espadin and 20% semi-wild agave Bicuishe. This combination results in a mezcal with distinct characteristics. The mezcal is known for its vibrant and floral notes that brighten the overall profile. Additionally, the blend offers a rich and textured experience, providing depth and complexity to the palate.

Alipus has created a mezcal that embodies the essence of its craft by carefully selecting and blending these agave varietals. The evolution from traditional clay stills to copper potstills reflects the commitment to innovation while staying true to the artisanal roots of mezcal production.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
