This year's Winter Blend 2021 is a sumptuous blend of Fortaleza's exceptional reposado aged in American and French Oak Ex-Marsala casks. It's supremely rich with roasted agave and dried fruit notes that are complemented with oaky tones, holiday spice, and vanilla flavors.
Tequila Fortaleza is a remarkable place. Sitting on the outskirts of town, just a short walk down a cobblestone path from some much larger factory distilleries, the distillery is one of only a few that produces only one brand of tequila. Guillermo Sauza (yes, of that Sauza family) has been at the helm here for more than a decade, ensuring production adheres to the traditional methods that have long been abandoned by most tequila distilleries in favor of speedier processes. We had a special opportunity to take the long uphill walk at (it’s really a climb) to the top of the hill that overlooks the agave fields and distillery below for a most incredible view of the entire valley. It was a truly unforgettable tequila experience.
