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. If you don’t, look for Dave Cheney’s equally spectacular Johns Rivers. Both can be ordered direct.
