Mezcal El Jolgorio El Plantanar Gotzengo Sierrudo: A Wild, Uncultivated Taste of Oaxacan Terroir

For the true mezcal purist, El Jolgorio El Plantanar Gotzengo Sierrudo represents the ultimate expression of Oaxaca's rich agave heritage. This remarkable, small-batch spirit is handcrafted by fifth-generation Mezcalero Felipe Velasco Jiménez from 100% wild, uncultivated Sierrudo agave (Agave cupreata).

Sourced from its natural habitat in the rugged highlands of Oaxaca, each Sierrudo piña is harvested at perfect maturity after a journey of 12-18 years. Using traditional ancestral methods, the piñas are slowly roasted for days in conical earthen pits using local hardwood and fibrous agave ribbons.

The roasted agave hearts are then crushed with a large, carved tahona stone, and the fibrous juices are allowed to ferment naturally in pine vats. This nutrient-rich mash is carefully distilled in small copper pot stills to preserve the intense flavors.

The result is an extraordinarily robust yet elegant mezcal clocking in at 48% ABV. The aroma alone transports you to the rustic palenques, with bold notes of wood smoke, wet earth, herbs, and citrus. One sip unveils layers of profound flavors - charred agave, roasted peppers, salinity, and hints of tropical fruit.

Despite its intensely wild, untamed persona, Sierrudo is remarkably smooth and supple on the palate, with an evolving, seemingly endless finish of mesquite, black pepper spice, and lingering mineral notes.

This transformative, transcendent mezcal embodies the wild, unbridled terroir of its birthplace. Sip El Jolgorio's Sierrudo to be transported directly to the rustic palenques and taste Oaxaca's rich agave heritage in its purest, most authentic form.

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.
