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 Mexicano that has been harvested at 8 years but can take up to 11 to reach full maturity. Agave Mexicano grows to be very large with broad, serrated leaves (Pencas) often bearing black tips. A sub-variety of Agave Rhodacantha, Mexicano is known to produce a Mezcal that balances both sweet and savoury notes and is intensely powerful with a long finish.
