Agave Espadín is the most prevalent species of agave in Mexico and reaches maturity earlier (5-10 yrs) than most other agaves. It also grows to be relatively large with a high sugar content, making it perfect for mezcal production.
Due to the abovementioned factors, Espadin is easily the most produced (and consumed) variety of mezcal.
However, only the most unique lots of mezcal Espadín are bottled under the El Jolgorio label, often being produced in remote areas or being rested in glass for several years prior to bottling to allow for the spirit to mellow and its flavors to develop fully.
