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 Barril, a rare subspecies of the Karwinskii family of agave that grows at high elevations and hilly terrain. The Agave used for this production is harvested on average after thirteen years of growth but it in some cases, can take up to 14 to reach full maturity. Its Piña (heart) is elongated and stalk-shaped with dense sugar content and very little water which creates a Mezcal of great complexity, balancing sweetness and citrus.
