Citrus oils and cooked agave jump out on the nose along with a hint of creaminess and a touch of pepper. The agave hearts are stone crushed before being fermented in open-air wooden tanks, the water source is a natural spring water from the Tequila and every bottle is hand-blwon in Mexico - this is artisan with a capital "a".

As if stepping into a time machine, Fortaleza shows you what tequila tasted like before processes were sped up in the name of "efficiency. Nose: Everything a good tequila should be with aromas of citrus, and rich cooked agave fill your nose in this unique and very special blanco Tequila.They capture everything that great tequila should be without the need for flashy marketing, vast productions runs or modern methods.

Aromas of citrus and rich cooked agave fill your nose in this unique and very special blanco tequila. The agave is then rinsed to separate the pulp from the fibres, producing the sweet agave nectar known as mosto.

Once cooled, the sweet juice is extracted with a 2-ton tahona wheel (large round volcanic stone) that crushes the cooked agave under its weight.In fact, their great-great-grandfather, Don Cenobio, founded his first distillery in 1873, in the town of Tequila, Jalisco, and was the first person to export “mezcal de tequila” to the United States, implementing the use of steam to cook the agave and discovering that Blue Agave was the best for production.
