Details

Fortaleza Blanco Tequila is made from 100% “blue” Agave tequilana Weber

Blanco, or white, also called silver, is stored in stainless steel tanks. It is not aged in wood and the label carries a drawing of the distillery.

Taste Notes: Crystal clear with 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 mouth-feel.
The finish is clean and full with a touch of sweet agave, bold spice and minerals.

Tequila Fortaleza is produced using traditional methods which create a tequila unequaled in taste and smoothness. Using the original oven with its metre thick brick walls, the agave is baked for thirty-three hours. Then it is crushed or milled exactly the same way it was over 135 years ago in our stone mill called the tahona.

The crushed agave is then washed with the pure mountain water from the Volcán de Tequila to separate the pulp from the woody fibers to create an agave juice called mosto. The woody fibers of the agave, called bagazo, are then removed and taken to the fields to use as compost. The agave mosto is then fermented naturally for three to four days in small wood vats, and then double distilled in a process using small copper pot stills.
Fortaleza’s glass bottle is hand- blown in Tonala, Jalisco by artisan glassmakers, and the bottle tops, designed by an artisan to represent the harvested agave, or piña, are hand-made by our workers.
