El Jolgorio has crafted this special batch Arroqueño Mezcal as part of their limited edition release of Artisanal Mezcales. The Special Edition releases of El Jolgorio showcase limited, small-batch production of Mezcal produced from extremely rare, 100% wild Agave varietals.
Once one of the most utilised Agaves for Mezcal production, this increasingly rare species has long been admired for its enormous size and long ripening period which produces huge Piñas with concentrated sugars. The agave used in the production of this Mezcal is 100% wild, harvested on at 16 years but can take up to twenty to reach full maturity. The result is an outstanding Mezcal that maintains its smoothness and balance at high proofs, is unique in fragrance and full in body. Due to the rarity of the species, batches of this Mezcal are produced only a few times a year with highly limited availability.
Through this Mezcal you can sense the spirit of the Maestro Mezcalearo (Master Distiller), his village and Palenque (Distillery). El Jolgorio Arroqueño is a Mezcal full of complexity and unique flavor that's made to be shared and celebrated with.
"As a mystical drink, our artisanal Mezcal offers you an unforgettable experience that leaves a lasting impression on the soul. Salud and Dixeebe!" - El Jolgorio
