El Jolgorio Mezcel Tasting Hosted at The Grange

By May 3, 2014Rhode Island, Top News

The El Jolgorio family of mezcals was highlighted during a recent education session at The Grange in Providence. Participants included area bartenders and beverage professionals. Master distillers make the line of eight El Jolgorio mezcals exclusively from different species and varieties of wild-harvested agave in local indigenous Zapotec villages in Oaxaca. Nuestro Soledad, also featured at the tasting, is made from planted and cultivated agave versus the wild line from El Jolgorio. The mezcals are available through Wine Wizards in RI and imported by Back Bar Project.
