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 older than 25 years of age giving them a savviness and smoothness that can't be matched. This beauty has an ultra dense body, with intense citrus aromas that develop into earthy and smokey notes. This is premium Mezcal at its best.
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.
