One of the hardest decisions anyone has to make is which oyster to order. Should it be the La 1930? What about the Murigen? Let’s get the Tsarskaya? How about all 3? Deciding on excellence shouldn’t be difficult and this tasting box makes that decision child’s play.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

The Saint Kerber Tasting Box features 4pcs (each) of their best oysters - La 1930, Tsarskaya, and Murigen oysters. These oysters are considered by many around the world to be the creme de la creme of what the ocean has to offer.

  • La 1930 flat oysters - these beautiful oysters are the epitome of Cancale flat oysters. Fresh, vibrant, and explosive in flavor, these oysters will knock your socks off.
  • Muirgen oysters - farmed in Saint Kerber’s Ireland oyster farm and matured in Cancale, Muirgen oysters are sweet and plump. They are the perfect marriage of two of the best oyster locations in the world.
  • Tsarskaya oysters - named after the Russian Czars of old that first introduced oysters to the region, these fine crustaceans have less meat than their Irish and flat counterparts, but offer an intensely briny experience that is contrasted by a surprising sweetness. This oyster offers a unique shellfish experience and should be on the bucket list of oyster lovers around the world.

Pairings

These oysters are best consumed fresh. While there are many good oyster recipes in the world, due to the quality of these oysters one would be remiss if not to experience the exacting standards and freshness delivered from the shores of Cancale to one’s home.

Simply shuck these oysters using an oyster blade and consume as is. Or do as the French do and serve with wedges of lemon (or any citrus - try calamansi for a unique oyster experience) and serve as is.

Pair this wonderful tasting box with a breathtaking bottle of Champagne Pierre Paillard Les Parcelles Bouzy Grand Cru. The delicate palate of pears and apple pear very well with the intensity that the oysters have to offer.

Pandora’s Box - in a good way.

Oysters are serious business in Cancale. Oysters were apparently first harvested in Cancale 2000 years ago after the invasion of the Romans.

SInce then, oysters have morphed into something more than a delicacy - it is almost a religion to the oyster farmers of Cancale. It is considered a sin to eat an oyster that is not alive to the farmers of this exquisite region.

To check if an oyster is living, simply give it a little poke. If it flinches, it is fresh and ready to be consumed.

Storage Instructions

Store your box of fresh, unshucked oysters in your fridge, keeping the temperature between 0 to 5°C. Keep them covered with a damp cloth, flat side up, to increase shelf-life. To enjoy them at their freshest, please consume them within 48 hours.

When you’re ready to shuck your oysters, take a sharp knife (a vegetable knife or, ideally, an oyster shucking knife) and hold the oyster, round-side down and pointed side facing you, between a tea towel. Wiggle the knife into the pointy end and twist it until the shell comes open.
