OAX Original® is a collaborative artistic endeavor presenting the distinctive flavors and raw beauty of wild agave through three limited-edition expressions: Arroqueño, Tobalá, and Tepeztate. Maestro Mezcalero Enrique Hernandez Zenea crafted these unique small-batch mezcals from agave plants found in the semi-arid Central Valleys of Oaxaca. The agaves average 12 to 25 years to reach maturity. 

Once foraged, the hearts of the agaves are slow-cooked in the ground with oak and mesquite, stone-ground by horse, then wild yeast fermented in pine barrels before being double distilled. OAX is a multi-sensorial experience, where the bottle embodies the mezcal in touch and sight—from its raw texture recalling dirt, bricks, and adobe, to the pure volumes that define its form, size, and surfaces, as well as their interaction with light and shadows.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Nose

    This mezcal has a semi silver tonality, with subtle wooden and cooked agave aromas.
  • Taste

    A buttery palatability with hints of sweet coffee.
  • Finish

    It is a drink of thick body with an aftertaste of coffee and almonds.

“Coffee and butter. Smell of silver wood burning. The body opens.”


Origins

100% Agave (A. americana) sourced from the Sierra de Oaxaca, Mexico. Picked up at the agave’s premium and brought to distillation at the maturity point. The agave plants are between 14 and 18 years old. OAX Original® is made in small batches, to preserve raw beauty, the wilderness, and the pure craftsmanship behind each bottle.
