Hammersley Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics

Hammersley Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from one of the South Puget Sound oyster appellations in Washington State. They are raised by the bag to beach method which combines two oyster farming methods. Rack & bagoysters are taken from their pampered environment and put into the beach cultured environment during their last 6 months before harvesting. This allows them to “toughen up” a bit, giving them stronger, less brittle shells and firmer meats.

They are cultivated in Hammersley Inlet, WA and deep-cupped, meaty, full-flavored with a mild brininess and a cucumber-mineral finish.
