The Rich History of Tequila La Fortaleza

Tequila La Fortaleza is more than just a brand; it’s a legacy. The origins of La Fortaleza can be traced back to the early 20th century, when the Sauza family began producing tequila in the town of Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico. The tradition and legacy behind the brand are rooted in the family's commitment to quality and authenticity. Today, Guillermo Erickson Sauza, a fifth-generation member of the family, continues this tradition, ensuring that each bottle of Tequila La Fortaleza is crafted with the same dedication and passion as it was over a century ago.

The Art of Crafting Tequila La Fortaleza

Tequila La Fortaleza is renowned for its traditional methods of production. The process begins with hand-harvesting the finest blue agave plants, which are then slow-cooked in traditional brick ovens. This slow-cooking method allows the agave to develop rich, complex flavors. After cooking, the agave is crushed using a tahona, a large volcanic stone wheel, to extract the juice. This juice is then fermented and distilled in small copper pot stills, ensuring a high-quality, artisanal tequila.

Each variety of Tequila La Fortaleza offers a unique tasting experience:

- Fortaleza Blanco: Fresh and crisp, with notes of citrus, herbs, and a hint of olive brine. Perfect for sipping neat or in a classic margarita.
