Alipus Santa Ana Del Rio Mezcal 750ML
The Alipus Santa Ana Del Rio Mezcal, presented in a 750ml bottle, is a testament to Santa Ana, Oaxaca's traditional mezcal production methods. This mezcal is exclusively made with agave Espadin, carefully cultivated in the region. The mezcal production is overseen by Mezcalero Hernandez Melchor, a skilled artisan dedicated to preserving the authenticity of the craft.
To create the Alipus Santa Ana Mezcal, the agave piñas are cooked using an underground stone oven, a traditional technique that imparts unique flavors to the final product. The slow and controlled cooking process ensures that the agave's natural sugars are extracted and transformed during fermentation.
Fermentation uses wild, naturally occurring yeasts, adding depth and complexity to the mezcal's flavor profile. Wild yeasts are a traditional approach that allows for the expression of the local environment and terroir in the mezcal.
The distillation process of Alipus Santa Ana Del Rio Mezcal takes place in copper stills, a classic method that enables the separation of alcohol and impurities. Copper stills are known for producing a clean and smooth spirit while preserving the unique characteristics of the agave.
The result is a mezcal that embodies Santa Ana, Oaxaca's rich heritage and traditions. Alipus Santa Ana Del Rio Mezcal showcases the skill and expertise of Mezcalero Hernandez Melchor and the dedication to preserving authentic mezcal production methods. With every sip, you can experience the distinctive flavors and aromas from the underground stone oven cooking, wild yeast fermentation, and copper still distillation.

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.
