Fortaleza was a small, old-fashioned distillery functioned wonderfully as a museum until 1999, when Don Guillermo Sauza appeared on the scene. Don Guillermo decided to restore La Fortaleza back into a functioning distillery. In 2002, he produced the first litre of true artisan tequila. Tequila Fortaleza is made with 100% blue agaves that are harvested from the Sauza plantation in the town of Tequila and then processed using only old traditional methods.
Flawless crystal clear appearance with a silvery blush. Offers an intense, salty, manzanilla-like bouquet that also includes dill pickle and chilli pepper. The intensity drops after several minutes exposure as the profile changes to grilled pineapple, straw and white pepper. A water like entry builds into a concentrated, fresh, vibrant palate with flavours of unripe pineapple, beeswax and white pepper accompanied by a delicious salty surge. Finishes gently warming, squeaky clean, fresh and manzanilla-dry with excellent length. Top notch Blanco that displays terrific vitality and poise.
