About Fortaleza Still Strength Blanco TequilaTequila Fortaleza is crafted using traditional methods, just as it was made 150 years ago. The process starts with mature, 8-year-old blue Weber agaves from the Tequila valley. After being harvested, the agaves piñas (hearts) are slowly cooked in a stone oven for 36 hours, turning the starches into sugars. Next, they are crushed using a traditional tahona (stone mill). Then, the juice is left to ferment in open-air wood tanks for about 4 days with the help of special yeast that has been in the family for generations. Finally, the juice is double-distilled in traditional copper-pot stills. The tequila leaves the still at 92 proof, and that's the proof at which Fortaleza Still Strength Blanco Tequila is bottled. It comes in a hand-blown bottle made by Mexican artisans and topped with an attractive piña-shaped stopper. Initially only available at the distillery in Tequila, Jalisco, this delicious expression is now available for purchase.
