El Jolgorio Madrecuishe is made with maguey Madrecuixe, which is a member of the karwinksii agave family. Due to the agave’s dense core and relatively low water content, mezcal made from Madrecuishe often has the flavour of high minerality mixed with vegetal and floral notes. As with other El Jolgorio bottles, each release can vary greatly. Check your bottle for more details.

El Jolgorio is a range of artisanal mezcal from Oaxaca, made from a wide variety of rare, unique agave species. In Mexico, there are around fifty different species of agave used for mezcal production, each yielding a mezcal with its own distinct character. In 2010, the Cortés family began building a collective of top mezcal distillers from around Oaxaca, with the goal of sharing the true culture and spirit of mezcal with the world.

In all, El Jolgorio represents sixteen different families, working in ten different regions of Oaxaca, Mexico, each with its own special story. Every bottle is hand-marked with the specific details of each batch, to truly connect the drinker with the family behind the expression.

AROMA: Aromatic, perfume, roses, honey
TASTE: Medium heat, immediate sweetness, thin body, slightly herbal with notes of rose and mint and honeysuckle. The finish is mellow, clean, crisp nothing funky.
