El Jolgorio Arroqueno mezcal
52%ALC 102 PROOF
El Jolgorio Arroqueno is made from 100% semi-wild agave Arroqueno. The agave Arroqueno is significant because of it’s large size. Typically, this agave can take up to 25 years to mature, before it is pit roasted in a traditional fashion. Given the length of time needed to grow this elegant agave, sustainability of Arroqueno has become a big issue. Fortunately, El Jolgorio only makes this mezcal in small batches so they can keep the production sustainable while conserving younger wild agave plants. Newer releases of this mezcal come in a black bottle.
