Luxury tequila brand Fortaleza is to be introduced in the UK through premium spirits specialist Indie Brands.

It has taken on UK distribution for the range of tequilas which are made from 100% agave in the authentic stone milled estate of Destilería La Fortaleza in the town of Tequila in Jalisco.

The line-up is led by an unaged blanco which is smooth and floral with a creamy and delicate mouth feel. The reposado is aged for six to nine months in charred oak barrels to give it a distinctive soft gold colour, and exudes warm nutty aromas with a lingering residual spice on the tongue.

The añejo tequila is aged for several years in the charred barrels, giving a deep caramel colour, vanilla aroma and very smooth and velvety feel on the palate and throat.

Douglas Cunningham, managing director of Indie Brands, said: “After more than 10 years since its launch, we are delighted and honoured to be finally bringing Tequila Fortaleza to the UK market.

“Beautifully packaged, Fortaleza is a traditional stone-crushed 100% agave tequila that tastes like no other.

“Fortaleza has built a large and ever-growing following, and is popular with both trade and consumers across the US and Australia – a success we intend to build on and replicate in the UK.”

The brand was created by Guillermo Sauza whose family has operated distilleries in the region for more than five generations.
