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

    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.

    Best Tequila, I have been on a quest to learn and try more sipping Tequilas. Found my favorite so far.

    this one does not slip by your taste buds, but rather asserts a high quality boutique-y flavor profile

    Can not add much to earlier reviews, except a very nice bite for a Blanco, and good enough you hate to mix with anything. A standard bearer.
