Saddlerock Oyster Flavor Profile Characteristics
Saddlerock Oysters are from one of the Long Island oyster appellations in the New York & Connecticut oyster region. Saddlerock oysters originated at a formation in the East River near Norwalk Harbor. In the 1800’s, the Saddlerock was the predominant bluepoint oyster sold. But they were sold until there were no more. Now the name has been revived for an oyster rasied on the Connecticut side of Long Island Sound.
