Not just any Espadín mezcal, every batch released under the El Jolgorio label is wildly unique, a bottle to be coveted. Sourced from numerous renowned mezcaleros from the Casa Cortés stable and beyond, any Espadín from the brand must be rested in glass (“madurado en vidrio”) for a minimum of 3 years before bottling. That’s just a starting place; some batches have been resting glass and tote for nearly two decades before the family selected them for release. Others are rare one-offs from otherwise unavailable mezcaleros, such as the notorious 2009 batch from Don Celso Luís Santiago, or the historic 2000 batch made by the Cortés family patriarch, Jose Cortés Santiago, to mark his retirement from distillation. Still others come from familiar Cortés family producers, but are made from agave which were handled differently: capón (castrated) for months in the field before harvest, to concentrate the agave’s natural sugars, or allowed to rest and develop bacteria before fermentation.
