A hugely admired 100% Agave spirit with notes of citrus, cooked agave and buttery vanilla. Fortaleza Blanco is a true aficionado’s tequila.

Once harvested, Piñas are cooked for 36 hours in an old stone oven. They are then crushed using a “tahona” and fermented in wooden open-air tanks for 4 days before a double distillation in copper stills.

"Fortaleza is a favourite of tequila aficionados the world over. This tequila is produced in a small batch manner/fashion, right down the the handblown bottles. A great example of 100% tahona-milled tequila."

About this product

Citrus and savoury cooked agave reminiscent of olives and basil, Fortaleza Blanco is one you can sip on the rocks, but is just fantastic when used in a Paloma.

Launched in 2005, Fortaleza Tequila is relatively new to the industry but has 140 years of history behind the brand, with the current owner's great-great-grandfather, Don Cenobio, founding his first distillery – La Perseverancia – in 1873.

Fortaleza Añejo Tequila agaves come from the heartland of tequila, known as Tequila Valley, in Jalisco, Mexico.

Fortaleza Añejo Tequila

Guillermo Sauza launched Fortaleza in 2005 and has become one of the most famous tequilas around the world. With baked agave, vanilla and a slightly spicy and enduring finish, their Añejo is well...

"The agave notes in Fortaleza are bold enough to be able to withstand heavy oak aging, resulting in a tequila that is still able to balance vanilla, sweet spice, and tannins from the wood with cooked agave notes."
