Staff Pick Notes

After a century of service, the Forteleza distillery was commissioned as a tequila museum. But the silky deliciousness of Fortaleza tequila was too good to keep behind glass. So now this wonderful tequila is back inside of a glass where it belongs. Fortaleza’s respect for the oldest and most revered traditions of the practice is immediately evident when you hold the hand-blown glass bottle and admire the unique “piña” cork enclosure. The agave is cooked in ancient brick ovens for 36 hours, then crushed under the weight of a heavy stone. The juice is then fermented in small wood vats. The tequila is distilled only twice so that the full, brilliant flavor shines through. The result is a soft, smooth sipping tequila that is deceptively easy to drink, with a delicious, buttery quality that rivals some tequilas that cost twice as much.
