Product Information

Guillermo Sauza's family have a rich tequila-making history, with Don Cenobio a key figure in establishing tequila as we understand it today. When Guillermo was little, his grandfather sold the company, however, dashing his chances of growing up to become a jet-setting mariachi band brand ambassador for the family's spirits (this is all true by the way). They held on to the distillery and land though, and Guillermo was able to get the traditional distillery (deemed too "inefficient" and old fashioned in the 1960s) back up and running, launching Fortaleza in 2005.

Tequila Fortaleza is made the way tequila was made 150 years ago. The use of old-world machinery and processes creates a unique tequila experience.

As if stepping into a time machine, Fortaleza shows you what tequila tasted like before processes were sped up in the name of "efficiency." They take their time, produce only in small batches, and are proud of what they do.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of fruit, baked fully-ripened agave, green olive, and earth are invitingly present. Slightly brighter and a touch more rustic than the regular blanco, the accents of butter, olive, earth, black pepper, and vegetal qualities in the flavour are enhanced because it comes straight from our small copper pot still, without adding water prior to bottling.
