Fortaleza Anejo Tequila ?C 750 ml bottle


SKU: FAT7MLB7 Categories: , ,

This tequila matures in oak barrels for two to three years and has a beautiful, silky smooth character that proves the Anejo right: rich but not sweet. Guillermo Erickson Sauza, a fifth generation family member, makes Tequila Fortaleza using traditional techniques. This is a beautiful handcrafted stone ground tequila. Tequila Fortaleza is made entirely within the walls of their estate using centuries-old traditional methods that, while highly labor-intensive, create a tequila unparalleled in flavor and smoothness. They cook their agave for 36 hours in an old oven with brick walls a meter thick. Then they crush or grind the agave like Guillermos Tatarabuelo did over 135 years ago in our stone mill called Tahona. The crushed agave is then washed with the pure mountain water from the Volc??n de Tequila to separate the pulp from the woody fibers and create an agave juice called mosto. The woody fibers of the agave, called bagazo, are removed at this point and placed in the fields as compost. The agave must is then naturally fermented in small wooden barrels for five days and then double distilled in small, labor-intensive copper pot stills. The result is authentic tequila, created by people who care about tradition. This tequila gets our highest possible recommendation.
