A Gold-winning authentic Mezcal.

OAX Original Mezcals are small-batch authentic Mezcals that come from the semi-arid Central Valleys of Oaxaca. All three OAX expressions distilled and bottled by 3rd-generation Maestro Mezcalero Enrique Hernandez Zenea from San Luis Del Rio, Oaxaca, OAX Mezcals are crafted from wild agave that’s foraged at an average age of 12-25 years in the mountainous region. But it’s not just about superb Mezcal: the experience of OAX Mezcal is multi-sensory with the bottle alone being an art piece that’s inspired by vernacular Mexican architecture and embodies the textures, volumes, surfaces, lights and shadows of the terrain.

Crafted with 100% Agave Americana that reached 14-18 years of maturity, OAX Original Arroqueño Mezcal won Gold at the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits Competition in 2022. We wouldn’t be surprised if it was due to the wonderfully subtle nose with wooden and cooked agave aromas that lead into the buttery and thick palate, bursting with sweet coffee and almond flavors.

All Tequila is Mezcal, but not all Mezcal is Tequila.
Espadín. That word means “sword” in Spanish because the leaves look like a mass of swords projecting out of the plant. Espadín Mezcals are most common because it has been the easiest agave to cultivate.
While Mezcal is produced all across Mexico, most of the Mezcal we see is produced in the state of Oaxaca. Interestingly, over 70% of Mezcal is made from the Espadín agave—even though more than 20 types of agave are used to make Mezcal.
