About Tequila Fortaleza

Tequila Fortaleza, is arguably one of the most sensational, artisanally made Tequilas in the world of agave spirits.  Since their debut in 2005, Tequila Fortaleza has amassed a following of aficionados unrivaled by any other brand with only 15 years in the market.  However the roots of Fortaleza, reach far past their recent history, 140 years to be exact, to the beginning of the Tequila industry itself.  Owner/operator Guillermo Erickson Sauza is the fifth generation of the infamous Sauza family, whose legacy in Tequila began back in 1843 with his great-great grandfather, Cenobio Sauza.

Tasting Notes

Aroma: cooked agave, sweet creamed butter, cinnamon bark, dried fruits

Palate: the high proof is present with cinnamon spice presenting first, followed by a mellowed cracked pepper, and evolving into the cooked agave and fruit forward palate the makers of Fortaleza are famous for

Finish: marsala wine barrels come through on the finish as faint dried plums, honey, and freshly baked dough that lingers on the tongue and evaporates into a herbal, alcohol forward finish
