Nootka Sound Oysters are sourced from a remote inlet of British Columbia. Their flavor is superior to other oysters, meaty, sweet and nutty with hints of anise. Their meat is pure white and their mantles are jet black. Nootka Sound is a ific by ferry. From here they are exported all over the world, as they are highly valued for their excellent quality and superior taste and texture. The flavor of Nootka oysters is complex and unexpected at times. The first flavor to hit your palate is salty brine, which melts away into the mild and nutty sweetness of the pure white oyster flesh. When the oyster is gone, it leaves the delicate flavor of anise behind for you to savor until you crack open the next shell. The shells themselves are works of art and make a beautiful presentation piece. Their delicate tear drop shape and beautiful striping makes them almost as enjoyable as the meaty gems inside.
