Fortuna Mezcal

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

Mezcal 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 MartĂ­nez, 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.

Most of these events are open to the public, and most importantly free (although some are private, and all are subject to the capacity of the venues). While you're partaking of the festivities, be sure to tweet to @fortunamezcal, and use the hashtag #fortunaweek.

Now, on to the contest.
