El Jolgorio Ancestral Arroqueño: A Bold, Sustainable Mezcal Masterpiece

Crafted by Mezcalero Felipe Velasco Jiménez in El Platanar Gotzengo, San Francisco Sola, Sola de Vega, Oaxaca, this exceptional mezcal is a true labor of love and respect for tradition. Made from 100% semi-wild Maguey Arroqueño (Agave americana) that can take up to 20 years to mature, each batch is a limited release to ensure sustainable production and conservation of younger wild agave plants.

The artisanal process begins with pit roasting the mature agave piñas, followed by an unhurried tahona milling and fermentation in clay pots. The result is a robust, full-bodied mezcal with an impressive 50.9% alcohol by volume.

Upon pouring, El Jolgorio Ancestral Arroqueño captivates with its deep, golden hue. On the nose, bold herbal and spicy aromas tantalize the senses, hinting at the flavors to come. The palate is greeted with a masterful blend of intense yet smooth, earthy, vegetal, and smoky notes, underscored by a pleasant pepperiness that lingers pleasantly on the finish.

This mezcal demands to be sipped and savored, revealing new layers of complexity with every pour. Experience the culmination of Felipe Velasco Jiménez's lifelong dedication to preserving the ancestral traditions of mezcal production with each carefully crafted batch of El Jolgorio Ancestral Arroqueño.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
