Los Abuelos Fortaleza Tequila

Guillermo and I with the Fortaleza Los Abuelos Tequila line-up.
I spend most Monday's at our local tequila bar, Cantina Mayahuel.  Needless to say, I've tried numerous tequilas and have learned so much from this gem in our community.  By far, Fortaleza (labeled Los Abuelos in Mexico) is my favorite.  Their blanco is undoubtedly the best.  A few have come close and I  challenge any new potentials to a side-by-side with Fortaleza.  In a Margarita, Fortalez Blanco gives the famed cocktail life, flavor, and smoothness.  While there is lots of competition for reposados and añejo, Fortaleza holds their own at the top of those lists as well.  While other distillers seem to have inconsistency among the types of tequila they offer, Fortaleza has a distinctive character present in all three of their tequilas.
Not long ago, we were fortunate to meet Guillermo Sauza, the General Manager of Fortaleza.  He sat down and chatted with us for at least an hour, answering our technical and whimsical questions centered around tequila production.  Great guy and with all that tequila he has at hand, there's certainly not a shortage of chillindamos!
