About this mezcal
OAX Original Tepeztate is made from Maguey Tepeztate (A. Marmorata) from San Luis del Rio, Oaxaca, Mexico. Cultivated at the agave’s premium and brought to distillation at the maturity point, the plants were ~25 years old.
OAX Original is a mezcal meant to be experienced. Unboxing an OAX bottle is unveiling a piece of art, exclusive and unique, carefully packed in a custom cardboard box for protection. Their bottle is inspired by vernacular Mexican architecture, a blend between the mysterious monolithic pre-Hispanic architecture and Euro-American Modernist design, spearheaded by Luis Barragán and presently embodied in the work of architects Frida Escobedo, Mauricio Rocha and Gabriela Carrillo, among others. Made out of ceramic, their bottle and full packaging have been produced in Mexico.
