Mezcal Bottle share #3: Los Danzantes and Alipus

Ladies and Gentlemen, I’m doing another bottle share.

I keep finding Mezcal a hugely interesting drink. And while not even all bottles from the previous share have been reviewed yet (my to-review queue is about a mile long by now) I want to get on with sharing more.

A while ago on the spirits blog of K&L Wines in California there were a lot of posts about their trip to Oaxaca and visiting Los Danzantes distillery (distillery/palenque/whatchamaycallit). Los Danzantes seems to be awesome, and true to the ‘craft’ description.

Los Danzantes has two brands:

Los Danzantes (all made of Agave Espadin  at their distillery in Santiago Matatlan) which comes in Joven, Reposado and Anejo. So, cask aging for mezcal!
Alipus (which is a range of single village mezcals, all made from Agave Espadin, much like the ones shared from Del Maguey)

From the importer in Germany I can get three of the Los Danzantes mezcals (joven, reposado and anejo) and 5 different editions from Alipus.

If you want in on the share, (which I think you should, the stuff is awesome) it’s going to cost you € 40 for 5cl of each (40cl in total) or € 75 for 10cl (80cl in total). This is including bottles (food-grade plastic), but excluding shipping.

There might be some delay in getting the mezcals to The Netherlands, as Germany is officially not allowed to send stuff here and I have to use a ‘mule’ to get things done. Expect stuff to actually take place in about a month.

There’s 13 x 5cl available, or any combination of amounts up to 65cl. Please let me know before Monday night if you like to be in. Contrary to before, this will only happen if I sell 60cl (yes, I’m willing to go up to 10cl)

After addressing my regular cronies for sharing this stuff, there’s 20cl left.
