El Jolgorio translates to “the revelry”. Jolgorios are small festivals that occur in remote, mountain villages throughout Oaxaca, Mexico. They celebrate births, deaths, weddings and Saint’s days. For centuries, the lifeblood of these celebrations has been traditional mezcal. In 2010, the Cortés family began building a collective of top mezcal distillers from around Oaxaca. As of 2019, El Jolgorio represents sixteen different families, working in ten different regions of Oaxaca, Mexico, each with its own special story. Every bottle is hand-marked with the specific details of each batch, to truly connect the drinker with the family behind the expression.

Maguey sierrudo (also spelled cerrudo) most commonly refers to an Agave americana. This means that it is closely related to Maguey arroqueno, sierra negra, and coyote. This maguey is enormous. It generally takes 16-20 years to mature and can grow up to 1,000 pounds in weight. There are some regions, however, that use the name sierrudo to describe an Agave rhodacantha.
