El Jolgorio Barril Mezcal

Mezcal /47% ABV / Mexico


Product description

El Jolgorio Barríl uses the agave Barríl, which is a rare subspecies of the Karwinskii agaves that grows wild at high elevations. The Barríl piña is dense with sugars and very little water, which results in a mezcal of great complexity. This mezcal delicately balances sweetness, citrus, and a distinct minerality. It is earthy with hints of light smoke. ABOUT EL JOLGORIO Mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies, and festivities in villages in our homeland of southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. These celebrations - also known as Jolgorios - always involve mezcal, a drink that spans cultures and bonds families. Fifteen unique El Jolgorio Mezcals are made from different species and varieties of wild-harvested and semi-cultivated agaves by master distillers in remote villages in the Central Valleys region of Oaxaca. Each El Jolgorio label signifies a different agave variety, with each tiny batch released in sequentially numbered editions. Due to the scarcity of wild agaves and a commitment to sustainability, the batches rotate, meaning each new edition might be produced from different regional producers within the tightly-knit collective. Every label bears the name of the distiller, village, age of agave at harvest, and number of bottles, to connect the drinker with the place of origin and the families behind the spirit.
