Shaker & Spoon with Tequila Fortaleza

The family behind Fortaleza has an amazing history: from being the first to export “mezcal de tequila” to the United States to helping establish tequila's denomination of origin—it has to be harvested and made in one of five states in Mexico—a move that changed the industry forever!

After being shut down for a few decades, Don Guillermo got Destileria La Fortaleza up and running again in 1999, making tequila in the same way it had been made over 100 years before—with a small brick oven to cook the agave, a tahona to squeeze its juices, wood tanks for fermentation, and two original copper pots for distillation.
Its flavors include citrus, vanilla, basil, olive, and lime. The finish is long and deep, complex yet easy to drink.
