Traditional, artisanal Mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies and festivities – known as “Jolgorios” – in villages in Oaxaca, México. El Jolgorio Mezcals are made exclusively from different species and varieties of wild and semi-wild harvested agave by Maestro Mezcaleros in local villages in Oaxaca, and are twice distilled in copper pot stills. On every bottle is inscribed the species of agave, the age at harvest, the village of production, the name of the Maestro Mezcalero, and the batch and lot number so as to truly connect the drinker with the land, people, and plants at the heart and soul of our Mezcal.
Like many Espadín Mezcals, the El Jolgorio is approachable, starting with an herbaceous bouquet of roasted agave and mint. The bright, savoury palate has notes of citrus, basil, oregano and rosemary. The warm and lingering finish continues with smoke, agave and minerality.
