Glidden Point

Source: Chef’s Resource

Raised by Ryan McPherson, Glidden Points have been legendary for 25 years. They are bottom planted in the cold Damariscotta River and slow-grown, not harvested until 4 years of age, leading to a large, firm, strong-shelled oyster. They are one of the only oysters in the world hand-harvested by divers. One of the priciest oysters in the country, and one of the most prized.

Type: Crassostrea virginica
Harvest Location: Damarsicotta River, Maine
Flavor Profile: Glidden Point Oysters grow slowly in these frigid waters and this slow grow-out gives Glidden Points rock-hard shells with deep cups, firm plump meats, and a crisp, complex flavor which is both briny and sweet.
