Fortaleza - Blanco Tequila

Blanco Tequila

Jalisco, Mexico

Destileria La Fortaleza craft artisanal tequila in the same way their great-great-grandfather, Don Cenobio, made it over 100 years ago – with a small brick oven to cook the agave, a tahona to squeeze the juices out of the agave, wood tanks for fermentation, and the 2 original copper pots for distillation. This very special blanco tequila is 100% stone crushed, double-distilled agave fermented in open-air wood tanks. Water is from a natural spring in Tequila Valley. The bottles are hand-blown in Mexico. 

Aromas of citrus, and rich cooked agave fill your nose, with whispers of butter, olive, earth, black pepper, and a deep vegetal complexity. In the mouth it's all citrus, cooked agave, vanilla, basil, olive, and lime. A true aficionado’s tequila. Salúd!
