This Añejo tequila is a luxurious testament to more than 150 years of tequila-making heritage, offering a sensory journey that pays homage to the spirit of its origins with every refined sip.

Heritage and Mastery

The story of Fortaleza is a chronicle of dedication and innovation, beginning with Don Cenobio, who founded the distillery in 1873. Through generations, from Eladio to Francisco Javier and now Guillermo, Don Javier's grandson, the family has upheld a legacy of excellence. At Destileria La Fortaleza, Guillermo continues to honor this tradition, using time-honored techniques to produce a tequila that is both authentic and unmatched.

Crafting Perfection

Nestled in the Tequila Valley, Fortaleza Añejo benefits from the fertile, mineral-rich soil, ideal for cultivating the sweetest agaves. Its creation involves traditional methods such as stone/brick oven cooking, tahona crushing, open-air wood tank fermentation, and double distillation in copper pots, complemented by 18 months of aging in American Oak barrels. This meticulous process and natural spring water ensure a tequila of unparalleled complexity and smoothness.

Product Essence

With an ABV of 40%, Fortaleza Tequila Añejo showcases a harmonious balance of rich flavors and aromas. Each hand-blown bottle from Mexico encapsulates the dedication to authenticity and craftsmanship. Its aged character offers a distinctive experience, reflecting the Tequila Valley's unique terroir.
