We’re not sure who came up with this “holiday,” but someone decided that National Oyster Day is August 5th, and while we celebrate oysters every day, we thought we'd give you a little something special in honor of this salty holiday! Introducing you to our new Oyster Tasting Kit - an oyster sampling box featuring three different oyster species, tasting notes and classic toppings.

  • 1 dozen Hog Island Sweetwater Oysters (Pacific)
  • 1 dozen Dukes of Topsail Oysters (Atlantic)
  • 1 dozen Redwood Kumamoto Oysters (Kumamoto)
  • 1 lemon + 1 tasting bottle (1/8 oz) of Tabasco

Throughout the month of August, we will be rotating the oyster offerings based on supply but you'll always receive 1 dozen each of 3 different oyster species. This is the perfect box for a seasoned bivalve lover or someone new to the oyster world.

Hog Island Sweetwaters: Our original oyster and the star of our show: A rich, and as the name suggests, sweet-tasting Pacific Oyster with a slightly smoky finish. Plump meat sits in a beautifully shaped, deep-cupped, fluted shell that is the result of rack and bag farming techniques.

Dukes of Topsail Atlantics: Open ocean salt engulfs the nose and palate as soon as the shell hits the lips and ends with an incredibly sweet, scallop like flavor. With a nice, full-bodied texture and high salinity, Dukes have a strong butter and salt flavor with subtle notes of umami and celery.

Redwood Kumamotos: Kumamotos are an Eastern Pacific oyster originating from the Kumamoto Prefecture, Kyushu, Japan. Cultivated on the West Coast since the late 1940s, these oysters take an average of two to three years to reach market size at, 1-1.5 inches. Each tiny shell packs in big flavor: Buttery, succulent meat with a lingering essence of cucumber and melon.

**Please note: we do not mix-and-match, each box gets 1 dozen of each type of oyster**
