"Fortaleza" Anejo - seasoned tequila, which is created in the best traditions of Mexican culture. Selected blue agave pinies are first baked in a brick oven and then ground with stone millstones. Juice squeezed from raw materials is diluted with spring water, fermented in wooden open-air tanks and distilled in copper cubes. Young alcohols are aged for 18 months in American oak barrels.
Destileria La Fortaleza is a Mexican company with more than 100 years of history that begins with La Perseverancia distillery, founded by don Senobio in 1873 in the town of Tequila in the Jalisco region. It was Senobio who began to export the ethnic drink from agave to the United States, shortened the name "mezcal de tequila" to "tequila" and suggested steaming the agave instead of traditional baking in clay pits. With the help of the grandson of Senobio, Francisco Javier, tequila received a name that is protected on a regional basis. Having bought a plot of land in the highest point of the city, the entrepreneur built a new La Fortaleza factory (translated from Spanish as “fortress”).
Due to the small volume of production, the distillery proved to be ineffective, so it had to be closed, and a tequila museum was created in the production area. Javier sold the family business in 1976, but retained ownership of land with estates and distilleries. But already in 1999, his grandson Guillermo, dreaming of reviving the former glory of the family brand, took up the restoration of the old family factory. After several years of hard work, production was established. Guillermo paid much attention to traditions and recreated the technology of a hundred years ago - with a small brick oven for baking fresh raw materials, a hand-held tachon device for chopping fruits and juice, wooden fermentation tanks and two copper cubes for distillation.
The Fortaleza brand was created for the export market - in its homeland, tequila is produced under the name "Los Abuelos".
