Our tequila cabinet has a sexy new addition that has seduced our bar team already. It might be £9 a shot, but boy, is this something special.
Say ‘Hola’ to Fortaleza. Yep, it’s even enjoyable to say. But with a soft and sweet flavour, a creamy mouth-feel and a clean finish, it’s even more enjoyable to drink.
Fortaleza Tequila is crafted in the stone-milled estate of ‘Destileria La Fortaleza’ in Tequila, Jalisco. Made from 100% mature Blue Agave, Fortaleza is a family-produced artisanal tequila that is born out of heritage and passion, using old-style techniques. The outcome has blown tequila fans away – it tastes like pure class in a glass.
‘The blanco (silver) tequila is stored in stainless steel tanks and never touches wood, giving it a crystal clear appearance. It is smooth and floral with a creamy and delicate feel in the mouth. Fortazela Reposado (rested) is aged for six to nine months in charred oak barrels to give it a distinctive soft gold colour, and exudes warm nutty aromas with a lingering residual spice on the tongue. The Añejo (aged) tequila is aged for years in the charred barrels, giving a deep caramel colour, vanilla aroma and exceptionally smooth and velvety feel on the palate and throat.’
Enjoy like a fine wine and sip slowly. Tequila heaven.
