Tasting Notes

Aromas of citrus, and rich cooked agave fill your nose in this unique and very special blanco tequila. Also present: butter, olive, earth, black pepper, and a deep inviting vegetal complexity.

Flavors 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.

One of the best blanco in the market.Here is where our blue agaves grow for seven to eight years, caressed with the warmth of the Mexican sun, nourished by the summer rains, and protected from the harsh and cold winter winds.Visit us and you will feel like you stepped back in time……to the days in 1856 when Don Cenobio, my Great-Great Grandfather, in Spanish called “Tatarabuelo,” arrived in the town of Tequila. Don Cenobio, the first to export Tequila to the United States in 1860’s, started his own brand in 1870’s. His son Don Eladio, my Great-Grandfather or “Bisabuelo,” continued the tradition of making tequila until his death where he passed the tradition to his son, Don Javier, my Grandfather or “Abuelo.”My Abuelo built the business to become the number one tequila producer in the world and then he sold it to Pedro Domecq Mexico in 1976. Fortunately, my Abuelo, left us with our lands and a small distillery named “LA FORTALEZA,” which means Fortitiude. It was built over a century ago, and was shut down and turned into a tourist museum in 1968 because its traditional process was too “inefficient.” In 1999, we decided to restore our old distillery to produce the finest tequila, using long abandoned, artisan methodology. In 2002, after 34 years as a tourist museum, LA FORTALEZA distilled its first liter of our authentic handcrafted Tequila! This product will be available in Mexico only under the label name "Los Abuelos

    Must Have

    This is a smooth, no additive, crisp , reasonably priced Tequila. Fortaleza is top tier tequila that can be enjoyed straight or mixed. It’s a rare find so if you see it , buy it and you won’t regret it

    Not much too say besides it's probably the BEST BLANCO on the market. So clean, so pure, it's happiness in a bottle

    If you don’t have ten empties of this by now, well I dont know what to tell you. It seems to me that there are two things required to make good tequila: a love for tequila, and the honest process which emerges from that love and respect. There are other tequilas which I like more, and other tequilas which I pay more for, but fortaleza is the fkn standard of tequila to which we all hold up any other for comparison.

    I typically only sip my tequila and sipping the Fortaleza Blanco was a fantastic experience. I found myself going back to it during the weekend. It did not disappoint and what a wonderful taste. I have several bottles of higher end tequilas but this is now one of my favorites.

    Simply put, pound for pound one of the best Tequila's on the market. Smooth, silky almost sweet finish from tequila made the old way.
