Bright, pristine, and authentic.

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.

Double-distilled and made from 100% Agave Marmorata that reached 25 years of maturity in San Luis del Rio, Oaxaca, OAX Original Tepeztate Mezcal is adored for its dense body with smoky and earthy notes that finish off warm and refreshing. This particular combination won a Silver Medal at San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2022. We suggest you enjoy this bright and pristine Mezcal neat, on the rocks or in a earthy cocktail.

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.
