Aromas of citrus, caramel, butter, cooked agave, and sage are the beginning of a pleasingly balanced and very unique tasting experience. Fortaleza Reposado has it’s own distinct character, and is not like any other tequila.

Flavors include cooked agave, citrus, vanilla, apple, earth, and cinnamon. The finish is long and rich, delicately spicy, and it has an oily texture that make this a joy to drink.

You simply cannot go wrong with Fortaleza Reposado. It’s popular with beginners and experienced tequila drinkers alike.

One of the best Reposado 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"

    The reposado is by far the best for the price.

    A very nice smooth tequila. The best tequilas are hard to find in Virginia. I will keep Fortaleza at the top of my list when I need more tequila

    The Fortaleza Reposado is very nice over ice or with a splash of lime,
    The delivery service however falls short. It took 3 attempts before finally delivered. A very frustrating experience.

    This is a very tasty tequila. The Fortaleza blanco and reposado are top of the line. I plan to try the anejo soon.
