25 Rappahannock River Oysters™
- Origin: Topping, Virginia
- Salt Range: 13-18 ppt.
- Taste Description: Deep cupped and mineral rich, with an understated saltiness that lets the oyster’s natural flavor come though, RRO’s Rappahannocks offer up a sweet, buttery, full-bodied taste with a refreshingly clean, crisp finish. It’s the very same oyster they started growing in 1899.
25 Stingray Oysters™
- Origin: Ware Neck, Virginia
- Salt Range: 16-20 ppt.
- Taste Description: Drawn from the Bay’s median salt range, Stingrays are the quintessential Chesapeake Bay oyster: sweet and mildly briny with a clean, crisp finish. Named after the Bay oyster’s chief predator, these Stingrays bite back!
Olde Salt Oysters™
- Origin: Chincoteague, Virginia
- Salt Range: 28-33 ppt.
- Taste Description: The truest taste of the ocean, RRO’s Olde Salt oyster brings together a bold sea-side brininess with a smooth, clean follow-through. Grown off the coast of Chincoteague Island (think Misty), the Olde Salt oyster is more than a classic, it’s a legend.
