    Product Description

    Tequila Fortaleza is a small-batch, handcrafted tequila. It is made today with the same production methods that the family used to make tequila over one hundred and forty years ago! It is made from selected agave for ripeness before it is harvested and cooked by steam in our small brick oven. Then, they use a two-ton stone wheel called a tahona to squeeze the juices from the agave slowly. After adding water from the volcanic mountain of tequila and separating the fibers, they ferment the musto for 3 to 5 days. A distinctive Tequila is achieved after fermentation and distilling twice in two very small copper-pot stills.

    Fortaleza Anejo Tequila is aged 18 months and is used in American Whiskey barrels. The extra time aging in these barrels imparts deeper, richer, and warmer tones than reposado. Caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, and cooked agave aromas practically jump from the glass in this highly-praised and perfectly-aged anejo. This tequila is so rich and complex that some people can even detect pineapple, peach, orange blossom, nutmeg, and raisin in the nose. Once in your mouth, the fully cooked agave experience continues with a thick and oily texture that coats your mouth very soothingly. Butterscotch, caramel, toffee, citrus, and hazelnuts are common flavors that people identify with. Fortaleza Anejo is a prized treat for any tequila lover.
