These oysters are grown in Case Inlet, on the eastern side of Harstine Island. One of the deeper bodies of water in the Puget Sound, along with its relative proximity to the Pacific Ocean, Case Inlet tends to produce oysters with higher salinity than others in the area. The oysters are started in mesh grow out bags and finished on the beach to mature and develop a thicker shell. Their initial salt will be greater than most other south sound oysters and linger a little longer. With a lot of nutrients in the water, they will develop a fair amount of glycol which will translate into a slightly sweet finish. On the middle of the palate, notes of salted cucumber, melon rind and seaweed can be detected.
