Origin: Malpeque Bay, Prince Edward Island, Canada
Species: Crassostrea virginica
The cold, nutrient-rich waters of Prince Edward Island are renowned for producing top notch shellfish, and Malpeque oysters are no exception. The oysters are cultured on the ocean bed, then harvested by hand or via tonging. These slender shells may contain delicate-looking meats, but they throw the strong, salty punch of the Atlantic, and finish light and clean. Slurp them with a crisp Pilsner.
