To introduce the event (and stoke the flames of anticipation), Andrew Richard Designs hosted a private soiree on Thursday featuring music, white-clad mermaids, and a slew of fashionable, music-minded partygoers.

Posted by Alexandra Grigorescu / February 22, 2013

Contest: Win a Fortuna Night at your home, collectibles and passports from Fortuna Mezcal

Posted by Alexandra Grigorescu / February 22, 2013

Fortuna MezcalMezcal is becoming something of a buzz word in most bars; made by distilling fermented mash from agave, the quality lies in the purity of its ingredients and the craftsmanship involved in its production. Enter Fortuna Mezcal, makes of artisanal mezcal using 100% pure agave, and who give back $1 from every bottle sold to the community of San Dionisio in Oaxaca, where it's produced. The project is a collaboration between Walter Meyenberg, Michael Martin, and Ignacio Martínez, the maestro Mezcalero of San Dioniso.

Fortuna Mezcal is holding its global launch in Toronto with Fortuna Week (February 25-March 3)--an epic week of Toronto venue-hopping that'll take you from Weslodge Saloon, to Spoke Club, to an appropriate finale at La Carnita. The founders will be on hand to demonstrate the Fortuna ritual--let's just say it involves oranges, chili powder, and roasted agave worms.
