Hammersley Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics
Hammersley Oysters are a Pacific Northwest oyster from the South Puget Sound oyster appellation in Washington State. They are raised by the bag to beach method which combines two oyster farming methods. Rack & bag oysters 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.
