These plump oysters start out slightly less briny due to a larger influx of fresh water, with hints of an earthiness, creaminess throughout, and a clean but sweet finish.

Rocky Nook Oysters are harvested mostly with a dredge, but will be handpicked in the very low tides of Kingston Bay. These oysters are grown on the bottom of the bay, giving them tough shells with a nice fluted pattern to the cups which can be seen decorating bars around the South Shore. The strength of the shells makes them a reliable local option known for a smooth shuck.
