El Jolgorio Espadin

"El Jolgorio", translating to "the revelry", is a mezcal brand deeply rooted in the small festivals of remote Oaxacan villages. Established in 2010 by the Cortés family, the brand represents a collective of sixteen families across ten different Oaxacan regions. Each bottle is hand-marked with batch-specific details, connecting the drinker to the family behind the expression. Notably, El Jolgorio introduced a limited edition Ancestral mezcal in 2017, featuring their first female Master Mezcalera, Justina Ruiz Perez. This Ancestral mezcal, distilled from 100% Agave Coyote, is part of their annual Edicion Especial releases, showcasing rare and highly sought-after agave. El Jolgorio is a celebration of tradition, community, and the art of mezcal.

Top tier

I’m convinced EJ can’t do wrong. This is one of the best espadins you can buy, trust me.

One of my favorites

El Jolgorio’s products are some of the best I’ve tried, and this espadin is no different. Quite smooth for 47%, with notes of baked agave and citrus, and a bit of pepper. Not so much smoke so the real flavors can really shine.

Definitely one of the better ones

Sugary, earthy, smell of agave. I really like El Jolgorio mezcals and their espadin is one of my favorite espadins for sipping. Not too much smoke and has a nice spice to it
