Colonial Cocktails

Jan 08, 2010

From the North Branch of Johns River in South Bristol, Maine (Pemaquid Light territory) comes a new oyster: Colonial Cocktails, grown by longtime shellfishermen Dave Cheney. This is classic oyster terroir, and the oyster delivers: stupendously sweet, briny, and with a surprisingly fruity flavor that you almost never see in east coast oysters. If you see these, try ‘em, but be forewarned: These suckers are wicked rare. The only place I know that carries them is the great Harbor Fish Market, right on the docks in Portland, Maine.
