The Damn Yankee (3 doz Sampler)
Now, we're a little biased, but we think the best oysters in the world are grown right here in New England (to be specific, here in Duxbury and a few miles south on Cape Cod...but mostly here in Duxbury). We'd like the opportunity to prove that to you, so we've assembled a dozen each of some of the best bivalves we know of, grown by some of the best farmers we know of.
The Damn Yankee (Sampler) contains three (3) dozen oysters:
Island Creeks hailing from Duxbury, MA - With a highly segmented flavor profile, these are the quintessential East Coast oysters. Strong salinity up front gives way to vegetal, mossy, buttery flavors of eel grass and seaweed which crescendo into a robust, sweet finish. It doesn't get any better than this.
Beach Points from Barnstable, MA - These are the saltiest of the bunch - hints of savory notes with a meaty, toothy texture. Mark Begley removes all the barnacles by hand, and uses the Australian Long Line method, which involves round baskets hanging on a long line that floats with the incoming flood tide.
Puffer's Petites from Wellfleet, MA - Puffer's Petites come from the oldest oyster bed in MA in the famed oyster town of Wellfeet. Irving and Jake Puffer use a unique combination of rack and bag, bottom planting, and Australian inspired long-line throughout the grow-out process, which gives the Puffer's an upfront brine, but a very strong and lingering finish of sweetness. A full-on Cape oyster experience!
