FORTALEZA TEQUILA

Tequila Fortaleza is a small batch hand-crafted, 100% blue agave tequila from Jalisco, Mexico produced by the fifth generation of Sauza family. It is made at the family’s distillery using the same production methods that were used 150 years ago.

The Agave used in the making of Fortaleza Tequila is from the heartland of Tequila Valley. They are very sweet and mineral-rich, and are hand-picked to ensure optimum maturity and ripeness.

The unique, traditional recipe used in production of Fortaleza slow cooks the Agave to allow them to fully release their rich flavours. Fortaleza uses bespoke bottles, each individually hand-blown in Jalisco, which means each one is different the same way it was done 150 years ago.

Flavors include citrus, cooked agave, vanilla, basil, olive, and lime. The finish is long and deep, complex yet easy to drink.

VARIANTS

Blanco – Rested for up to 60 days.
Reposado – Aged for 7 months.

BLANCO

Crystal clear, Fortaleza Blanco has earthy aromas of baked agave backed with notes of dried berries and citrus. The flavour begins soft and sweet, showing classic citrus, cardamom, white pepper and minerals with a creamy and delicate mouthfeel. The finish is clean and full with a touch of sweet agave, bold spice and minerals.

REPOSADO

A soft gold colour, Fortaleza Reposado startswith aromas of raisins, figs, roasted nuts, caramelized agave, honey, delicate earth and soft cinnamon. With a creamy mouthfeel, flavours of dried fruit lead to agave, toasted wood, baking spice and minerals. The finish is vibrant and lively, with lingering residual spice.

ANEJO

Aged for 1 ½ years, Fortaleza Añejo is a mid to rich gold colour. The nose is of caramel, cinnamon, honey and nutmeg. Again the signature mouthfeel of the other Fortaleza tequilas is found here.  Tastes range from soft agave honey to newly turned soil with wood sugars and spice throughout. The finish is of bracing minerals and hints of baked agave.
