Created by the Cortés family, considered by many to be mezcal royalty, El Jolgorio is widely acknowledged as one of the finest collections of agave spirits available. Their ever-changing lineup of mezcales offer wild, semi-wild and cultivated agaves, rare pechuga distillations, and small batches rested in glass for three, six, or as much as eighteen years before release.
One of the smallest varieties of agave used to make mezcal, Tobalá is often referred to as the “King of the Wild Agave” even though it makes up at most 2% of all Oaxaca agave. Tobalá generally grows at high elevation in the shade of trees or other larger agave. Its small size and lower sugar yield, even after 10-18 years of growth, means that it often delivers as little as a third to a half a liter of mezcal per plant.
