If you were to visit Fortaleza and taste their unaged spirit off the still, this is it. The newest addition to their stable of incredibly approachable tequilas is this still strength bottling. Bursting with tropical flavors and roasted agave this coats your palate with balanced flavors and richness. A sure-fire winner for lovers of un-aged tequila. We suggest you give it a try, you'll be amazed at its complexity.
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.
