Spirits Review

Fortaleza Still Strength Blanco Tequila

The Fortaleza family has been making Tequila for four generations, following traditional methods of production. Using agave crushed with stone tahonas, they produce their Still Strength Blanco in copper pot stills, then bottle it without watering it down to a lower proof. It’s complex and beautiful, playing vegetal notes of corn, beet and bluegrass off fruitier flavors of green apple skin and papaya, with a hint of campfire in the background. You won’t be disappointed just sipping this straight out of the copita.
