    Although Fortaleza was only launched in 2005 the Cenobio family has a long history in tequila production, being the very first to export tequila to the United States in the 1860’s. Today the very same family produces some of the finest expressions of tequila using traditional artisanal methods at their century old hacienda in the Tequila Valley.

    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. All agave is grown in Jalisco and are allowed to mature to at least 8 years before harvesting. The agave that grows around the distillery are sweet and mineral rich which imparts the signature aromas and flavours of Fortaleza. the agave are cooked slowly in stone ovens before being crushed using a tahona mill. Fermentation takes place in wooden open air tanks before being double distilled in copper pot stills then being aged in American oak barrels.

    The Fortaleza Blanco is one of the great expressions of blanco with aromas of citrus, and rich cooked agave which fill your nose in this unique tequila. Also present: butter, olive, earth, black pepper, and a deep inviting vegetal complexity. Flavours include citrus, cooked agave, vanilla, basil, olive, and lime. The finish is long and deep, complex yet easy to drink. Fortaleza Blanco is a true aficionado’s tequila.
