El Jolgorio Pechuga is made using two distillations. During the second distillation, the mezcalero adds locally harvested fruit and spices, like pineapple, orange, and plantains. Also during the second distillation, the mezcalero hangs a raw turkey breast on the inside of the pot still in such a way that all of the vapor must pass over the meat before it becomes liquid Mezcal. Unlike the other El Jolgorio bottles, Pechuga is not named for the species/variety of agave it is made from, but rather for this special way of making Espadín Mezcal.

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: Crazy, soft welcoming vanilla. Oak.
TASTE: Vanilla, citrus rind, caramel, pine, lemon, oily, raisin, roasted pineapple.  Finish is oaky, woody, vanilla, mint.
ENJOY: Sipping mezcal is enjoyed slowly and with friends..
