A Visit To La Fortaleza

I just came across this great little video of a good friend of mine, Mark Alberto, visiting (in my book) the most legendary distillery, La Fortaleza, who do not only produce some of the finest Tequila around, but also comes from one of the first Tequila producing families, the Sauza Family. Guillermo Ericsson Sauza is the 5th generation Tequila producer, and produces the bra Los Abuelos (La Fortaleza outside of Mexico). In the 1970’s when Sauza was sold, Don Francisco Javier Sauza kept a little land on the hillside at the end of Tequila town, on which he built a distillery, to give back to the town, the Tequila he grew up with. Guillermo some 30 years later, restored the distillery and kept the tradition alive, Tequila the old way. Los Abuelos – The Grandfathers.

Salud!
