Coyote, Mezcal, El Jolgorio (BB)

Traditional mezcal forms an important part of the rituals, ceremonies, and festivities—known as “Jolgorios”—in the villages of Oaxaca, Mexico. The ever-changing lineup of El Jolgorio Mezcals are made exclusively from different species and varieties of wild, semi-wild, and cultivated agave by Maestro Mezcaleros in local, indigenous Zapotec villages in Oaxaca. All mezcals are open-air fermented and all but one are twice-distilled in copper pot stills. On every bottle is inscribed the species of agave, the age of harvest, the village of production, the name of the Master Distiller, and the batch/lot number as to truly connect the drinker with the land, people, and plants at the heart and soul of this mezcal. Salud y Dixeebe!

Tasting Notes

El Jolgorio Coyote is made with silvestre agave Coyote that was harvested by Pedro Vasquez and his family. Agave Coyote is a sub-variety of the agave Americana species (var. Oaxacensis) that can take 16 years to reach maturity. Thus, it shares the same Latin name as agave Arroqueño, yet they are quite different in both physical appearance and flavor profile. Like the 2017 edition, the 2018 entry is made by Pedro Vasquez in Lachigui. This elegant and vivacious mezcal was first released in 2017 and is the most limited of all the Special Release bottlings from El Jolgorio.
