El Jolgorio Mezcal Espadín 750ml
$129.95
Traditional, artisanal mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies and festivities - known as "Jolgorios" - in villages in Oaxaca, México. Agave Espadín is the most prevalent species of agave in Mexico and reaches maturity earlier (5-10 yrs) than most other agaves. It also grows to be relatively large with a high sugar content, making it perfect for mezcal production. Due to the abovementioned factors, Espadin is easily the most produced (and consumed) variety of mezcal.  However, only the most unique lots of mezcal Espadín are bottled under the El Jolgorio label, often being produced in remote areas or being rested in glass for several years prior to bottling to allow for the spirit to mellow and its flavors to develop fully.    47.8% ABV 28.3 standard drinks

Traditional, artisanal mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies and festivities - known as "Jolgorios" - in villages in Oaxaca, México.  El Jolgorio Mezcal Pechuga is produced from 100% semi-wild Agave Espadín (Agave angustifolia).  El Jolgorio Pechuga is made using two distillations. On the second distillation, the mezcalero adds locally harvested fruit and spices, such as pineapple, orange, plantains, anise, to name a few. Also on the second distillation, the mezcalero hangs a raw guajolote - a creole turkey rooster of the region - on the inside of the pot still.  Unlike the other mezcal expressions in the El Jolgorio range, Pechuga is not named for the species/variety of agave it is made from, but rather is a celebratory style of Espadín mezcal. It is made only for special occasions including, for example, patron saint days and weddings.  It is important to note that, due to its purpose of celebrating important events, Pechuga is always intended...
