Dive into the briny depths of Huitres Ostra Regal, the quintessence of premium oyster indulgence, meticulously curated by La Famille Boutrais.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

The Huitres Ostra Regal, plucked from the lucid waters that grace Ireland’s Clew Bay and Bannow Cove, unveil an arresting tapestry of flavors that are the whispers of the sea to the palate. A fresh, briny scent beckons the senses, serenading them with evocative hints of pristine maritime realms. Upon initiation, the oysters reveal a staggering mineral-rich and iodized profile, a testament to the life-sustaining minerals generously proffered by the nourishing waters of their birth. As one delves deeper into this nautical embrace, the mid-palate sings with an unexpected chorus of sweetness, juxtaposed with a balancing act of subtle acidity—each note carefully orchestrated by nature’s meticulous hand. Completing this rhapsody is a lingering algal caress, an enduring hinterland of flavor punctuated by elusive whispers of hazelnut, rounding out an epicurean journey of sea-bound discovery. The Huitres Ostra Regal’s texture, an essential counterpart to its symphony of taste, resonates with a resolute firmness and a crispness that belies the oysters’ robust vigor. The high meat ratio speaks to the lavish generosity of the sea and the tireless diligence of the Boutrais lineage. Aptly bearing the hallmarks of their premium status, these oysters are an embodiment of their storied terroir and a monument to their brethren.
