Tasting Notes

Fortaleza was one of the first brands of premium tequila introduced into the States way back in 1870 and is one of the far too rare vestiges of traditional tequila now available to us. One of their former distilleries which was functioning as a Tequila Museum has been recently reopened and production began on the same boilers that were originally used over 100 years ago! Thankfully virtually nothing has changed. Only estate grown agave are used at peak ripeness which are crushed with a traditional Tahona and sugar cane, fructose, and other sweetening agents are never used. The resulting spirit is pure, delicate, and profound showcasing complex agave character, classic pepper and earth, along with bright volcanic minerality and distinguished floral quality. As near to perfect a tequila we could imagine.
