El Jolgorio has crafted this special batch Jabali 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.
This Mezcal is produced from 100% wild-harvest, Agave Jabali which takes between 16 to 18 years to reach full maturity. Jabali is known to be difficult to work with, it takes an expert eye to know how to select the right Jabali Agave and expert knowledge on how to produce an exemplary batch of Jabali Mezcal. The Agave used to create this Mezcal has been cooked in underground earthen pits, crushed using a Tahona (stone wheel) to extract the juice from the Agave, fermented in pine wood vats and then twice distilled in copper pots. The water used throughout the production process is sourced from a natural well.
Through this Mezcal you can sense the spirit of the Maestro Mezcalearo (Master Distiller), his village and Palenque (Distillery). El Jolgorio Jabali is a Mezcal full of complexity and unique flavor that's made to be shared and celebrated with.
