Guillermo Sauza Distillery (Destilería La Fortaleza)

Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico

Fortaleza Tequila is a brand founded by Guillermo Sauza, a fifth-generation tequila producer whose family has a rich legacy in the industry. The Sauza family has been involved in tequila production since the late 19th century.

Production Methods:
Destilería La Fortaleza takes pride in preserving time-honored techniques in the production of Fortaleza Tequila. The journey begins with the careful selection of 100% estate-grown blue weber agave, ensuring the highest quality raw material. The agave is slow-roasted in traditional brick ovens, crushed using a tahona wheel, and naturally fermented in open-air wooden vats. Distillation occurs in small copper pot stills, a method that allows for the capture of the true essence of the agave.

Aging Process:
Fortaleza Tequila Reposado undergoes a resting period of up to 8 months in American oak barrels. This aging process imparts the distinctive golden color and contributes to the nuanced flavors that make Fortaleza Tequila Reposado a standout spirit.

The Guillermo Sauza Distillery is committed to preserving the heritage of tequila production and honoring the legacy of the Sauza family. Their philosophy revolves around quality over quantity, using traditional methods that have been passed down through generations to create tequila that reflects the true spirit of Mexico.
