Fortaleza Blanco is one of the best “white” Tequilas you will find at any price, bar none. 

“Technically,” Fortaleza Tequila launched in 2005. Really, they have been making tequila for five generations and the story of that “technically” comment could fill an entire website. Suffice it to say that Don Cenobio founded his first distillery in 1873, passing it on to generation after generation, then some of the land was sold, then bought back, and renamed Tequila Los Abuelos. But a Rum had that name, so they had to get the trademark thing worked out… yadda, yadda, yadda… now they have been making Tequila under the Fortaleza name for the last decade. 
 
Fortaleza Tequila is based in Jaliscothe Mecca of Tequila—using brick ovens, Tahano stone mills, and a pair of copper pot stills in the escuala-vieja way (old school). They produce a traditional line of three core Tequilas: a Blanco, a Reposado and an Anejo, along with the occasional special edition. 
 
First, check out the awesome stopper on the top of the bottle. It’s a die-cast replica of a harvested agave’ plant and it is cool as heck. And the bottle is one of those hand-made ones from central Mexico, so it is wonderfully a little less-than-perfect awesome! It is a little like having a Tequila art piece on the shelf. 
 
But once you get past the packaging, the Tequila is really solid too. In fact, this is one of the best “white/blanco/silver” Tequilas that you will find at any price, bar none. It’s got it all—the craftsmanship, obvious quality materials, smooth, rich, buttery-viscous mouth feel and earthy aromas that are the reason Tequila is the awesome, internationally recognized spirit we love.
