Fortaleza Reposado is a type of tequila that is produced by the Fortaleza Distillery in Tequila, Jalisco, Mexico. It is made from 100% Blue Weber agaves, which are harvested by hand from the fields surrounding the distillery. The agave is slow-cooked in traditional brick ovens, crushed with a tahona (a large stone wheel), and then naturally fermented in wooden vats.
The reposado expression is then aged for 6 to 9 months in American oak barrels, which gives it a golden color and a smooth and complex flavor profile. Notes of vanilla, caramel, and oak are complemented by the natural sweetness of the agave, making Fortaleza Reposado a popular choice among tequila enthusiasts. The production process is overseen by the Camarena family, who have been involved in tequila-making for more than five generations and have a deep commitment to traditional methods and quality craftsmanship.
