Fortaleza Tequila Reposado, a meticulously crafted spirit that captures the essence of tradition and the artistry of tequila production. Nestled in the heart of the Tequila Valley in Jalisco, Mexico, the renowned Fortaleza distillery brings you a Reposado that epitomizes the rich heritage of agave cultivation and artisanal distillation.

Fortaleza Tequila Reposado is a true testament to time-honored methods and a commitment to quality. Made exclusively from 100% estate-grown blue weber agave, each plant is carefully selected for its maturity and character, ensuring a robust and authentic flavor profile. The agave hearts, or piñas, are slow-roasted in traditional brick ovens, allowing the sugars to caramelize and infuse the spirit with a warm, inviting sweetness.

After the meticulous cooking process, the agave is crushed using a traditional tahona wheel, extracting the precious juice that will become Fortaleza Tequila Reposado. This juice is then naturally fermented in open-air wooden vats, allowing the indigenous yeast to impart unique and complex flavors to the tequila. Distillation takes place in small copper pot stills, a method that has been perfected over generations to capture the true essence of the agave.

What sets Fortaleza Tequila Reposado apart is its resting period in American oak barrels for up to 8 months. This aging process imparts a golden hue and a harmonious balance of flavors. Subtle notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak intertwine with the natural agave sweetness, creating a smooth and sophisticated tequila experience.

The finish is long and satisfying, leaving you with a lingering warmth and a desire for another sip. Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or as the foundation for your favorite cocktails, Fortaleza Tequila Reposado stands as a testament to the dedication of its makers and the timeless tradition of tequila craftsmanship.
