In Zapotec (pre-hispanic culture from central Mexico) "Jolgorios" are moments of joy, celebration and rememberance. El Jolgrio Mezcal has created a range of artisinal Mezcales which reflect Mexican culture and tradition. This El Jolgorio expression is made with 100% wild-harvest, Agave Madrecuixe; a member of the karwinksii agave family. This Agaves Piña (heart) is elongated and stalk-shaped with dense sugar content and very little water which creates a Mezcal of great complexity with a palette of high minerality. The agave used for this production is harvested at 12 years but can take up to 14 to reach full maturity.
