Some other restaurateurs around town (NOT IN THE MARKET) use GMO produce in their establishments, but not here at Lowell’s.
Our own Katie Apple-Finder travels the backroads seeking out the freshest and most unique produce available for use in our creative, one-of-a-kind cocktail infusions in our 2nd floor bar/lounge.
Like the “Jorge Gigante'” here, not just any apple, the Jorge grows in the upper reaches of the dwarf apple trees that were imported in the 17th century to within 40 miles of Lowell’s, up by Tiger Mountain, where they hide beneath the pines for maximum strength of character, where all of the nutrients go into the apple and not the twigs & leaves.
Producing such unique characteristics as the white dreads and courageously assertive head size, the “Jorge Apple” is a specimen unique to Lowell’s, and Katie Apple-Finder is the super sleuth apple-finder of the Pacific Northwest,responsible for foraging Tiger Mountain to bring them to us, and ultimately, to you!
Thank you Katie, job well done!
