Nuestra Soledad is El Jolgorio's line of single-village mezcals. Their mezcal from Santiago Matatlán, in the east of the Valles Centrales region, is made from espadín agave. The agaves are roasted with mesquite and oak in pit ovens, fermented in open air, and distilled twice in copper alembics.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
"The relatively gentle nose of Nuestra Soledad's Santiago Matatlán mezcal carries mild notes of tropical fruit alongside ethanol heat. The taste has notes of light smoke and minerality with a raw, lingering finish that one can savor long after drinking."
