Mezcal El Jolgorio El Plantanar Gotzengo Coyote: A Wild, Yet Refined Taste of Oaxaca

Venture into the untamed heart of Oaxacan mezcal tradition with El Jolgorio El Plantanar Gotzengo Coyote. This exceptional, small-batch spirit is a true labor of love, hand-crafted by fifth-generation Mezcalero Felipe Velasco Jiménez in the village of El Plantanar Gotzengo.

Made from 100% wild Coyote agave (Agave karwinskii) harvested in its natural habitat, each precious bottle encapsulates the robust, earthy essence of this region's terroir. The piñas are harvested at peak maturity, then slowly roasted in conical earthen pits using locally sourced wood and wrapped in agave fibers using centuries-old techniques.

The roasted agave is crushed with a traditional tahona mill, with the nutrient-rich fibrous juices allowed to ferment naturally in open-air pine vats before being carefully distilled in small copper pot stills.

The result is a stunningly complex yet elegantly structured mezcal that dances between rustic and refined. At 48.3% ABV, it makes an intense first impression with aromas of mesquite smoke, damp earth, and hints of Mediterranean herbs. One sip unveils layers of robust flavors - charred agave, roasted peppers, mezcal's signature salinity, and undercurrents of tropical fruit.

Despite its bold persona, Coyote is remarkably smooth and supple on the palate, with an evolving, seemingly endless finish of dry smoke and black pepper spice. Sip this transformative spirit to be transported directly to the rustic palenques of rural Oaxaca.

El Jolgorio's Coyote is a true mezcal connoisseur's delight. It encapsulates this legendary artisanal tradition's wild, unbridled spirit in liquid form. Stock up on this limited release while you can—Coyote's untamed soul is not easily replicated.

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.
