El Jolgorio Mezcal

El Jolgorio Mezcal

Traditional, artisanal mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies and festivities - known as "Jolgorios" - in villages in our native homeland of Oaxaca, México. Our nine unique El Jolgorio Mezcals are made exclusively from different species and varieties of wild-harvested agave by Master Distillers in local indigenous Zapotec 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 Master Distiller, and the batch and lot number so as to truly transport and connect the drinker with the land, people, and plants at the heart and soul of our mezcal. Salud y Dixebe!

Awards: Distiller.com – 88 points "The nose here is unusually spicy and savory with bready notes of caraway, cumin, curry, mustard and a subtle herbal backbone. The flavors follow suit for the most part but does veer off a little just to keep things interesting. There is even more bread and caraway along with oregano, bergamot, an interesting saké-like note followed by a burst of pure smoke on finish. The body is fairly rich and while quite enjoyable, it is more of an intellectual study in mezcal than a weekday quaffer."
