Voodoo Tiki® Tequila and Joe Forte’s Seafood and Chop House are partnering to bring Voodoo Tiki Ultra Premium traditional and infused tequilas to world famous Thurlow Street, Vancouver. Joe Forte’s Seafood and Chop House will be offering iconic beverages including house specialty cocktails and the world famous “Desert Rose Prickly Pear Margarita.” Joe Forte’s Seafood and Chop House is located at 777 Thurlow Street, Vancouver, BC.
One of Joe Forte’s Seafood and Chop House many unique qualities is the immediate sense of character and personality that guests recognize the moment they step inside. The large, bright room feels instantly powerful yet inviting, and it’s no coincidence that these qualities were also embodied by the legendary namesake – Seraphim “Joe” Fortes. In 1885, this burly seaman landed upon Vancouver’s shores and settled into a cabin in English Bay. There, Joe quickly became one of Vancouver’s most popular citizens, serving Vancouverites in a variety of ways – first as a bartender and later as Vancouver’s first official lifeguard. Today, he is remembered by a monument near the site of his home, and his popularity lives on inside the welcoming walls of Joe Fortes Seafood & Chop House.
Specialty Voodoo Tiki Cocktails and “Infused Margaritas” will be available. Starting this week, Joe Forte’s Seafood and Chop House guests can order a Voodoo Tiki Tequila Mar-Tiki® featuring muddled orange, lime and artisan syrups before settling in for a meal to remember.
The move by the Florida-based Voodoo Tiki Tequila brings the award winning, boutique tequila to another key premium market location. Voodoo Tiki Tequila is made in small batches, with the finest ingredients in a process that results in an award winning taste profile with very little heat or bite. Voodoo Tiki tequilas feature notes of sweet agave, vanilla, caramel and brandy, without the burn or rough finish which is synonymous with other tequilas. The company is adding a very limited number of retailers through 2012.
