Tobaziche, 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!

Tobaziche (A. Karwinskii) is the same species as the well-known variety, Cuixe, except it grows in a different part of Oaxaca, so is called by its local dialect. Despite the genetic similarities, the flavor profile is entirely unique. The flavor is extremely high toned, and full of vibrant energy.
