About this mezcal

El Jolgorio Todos Santos Mezcaleros Coyote is a special edition – released in 2021. Todos Santos (All Saints), an important event in Mexican culture, is a three-day celebration of friends and loved ones who have passed on. Casa Cortes released this bottle as part of its second Todos Santos release:

Casa Cortés proudly celebrates the life of San Luis del Rios’ revered Master Mezcalero, Rafael Méndez Cruz, with the second edition of its highly anticipated ‘Todo Santos Mezcal’. Casa Cortés honors its strong relationship with the Méndez family and the community of San Luis del Rio by donating 100% of the proceeds toward building the “Rafael Méndez Cruz Commemorative Park” in San Luis del Rio.

Maestro Mezcalero Regulo Martínez Parada distilled this batch in 2019 and it was bottled at a traditional 50.3% ABV.

El Jolgorio Mezcal

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.

In 2017, the team behind the brand realized that certain varieties of agave would be extremely limited and they would only be able to make them available once per year (if at all). They began packaging these rare editions in black bottles to set them apart from the other releases.

The artwork on the first 8 releases was created by Alejandro Peña (Espadin, Pechuga, Tobala, Cuixe, Madrecuixe, Tepeztate, Barril and Mexicano). The next 5 labels were created by Asis Cortes (Arroqueno, Jabalin, Coyote, Tobaxiche, and Cenizo) and the Sierrudo artwork was created by Alberto Almánza.

Opens with fairly standard eucalyptus and asparagus. Then it takes a left turn into a fandango of peaches, nectarines and bell peppers. The combo just works. Stellar
