In Zapotec (pre-hispanic culture from central Mexico) "Jolgorios" are moments of joy, celebration and remembrance. El Jolgrio Mezcal has created a range of artisanal Mezcales which reflect Mexican culture and tradition. This El Jolgorio expression is produced from 100% wild-harvest Agave Cuixe; a rare varietal known to be difficult to work with. The Agave used in this production is harvested on average at 13 years but can take up to 14 to real full maturity. Extensive experience is required to handle and produce an exemplary batch of Cuixe Mezcal. Closely related to Madrecuixe and Barril Agaves, Cuixe grows a cylindrical, stalk-shaped Piña (heart) with spreading Pencas (leaves) at the top. A dense and dry Piña is what contributes to its intense flavour profile.
