OYESTER44

ORIGINAL DUTCH

MARITIME VODKa

A LITTLE BACKGROUND STORY.

OYESTER44 IS BORN OUT OF PURE PASSION FOR THE COASTAL REGION IN THE SOUTH-WEST OF THE NETHERLANDS AND THE GREAT FOOD IT HAS TO OFFER.
EARLY 2017 CHRIS LIEBAU AND DISTILLER MEINDERD KAMPEN, BOTH PASSIONATE SEAFOOD AND VODKA LOVERS, TEAMED UP TO CREATE SOMETHING CLOSE TO THEIR SHARED PASSION. THEIR DREAM WAS TO CREATE THE BEST POSSIBLE LIQUOR TO MATCH AND PAIR WITH SEAFOOD, MADE WITH LOCAL AND ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS.
THIS IS WHAT OYESTER44 IS: ORIGINAL DUTCH MARITIME VODKA WITH ACTUAL 'TERROIR'. PURE GRAIN ALCOHOL INFUSED WITH OYSTER DISTILLATE, LEMON BALM, VERVEINE, ORGANIC POTATOES, PIMENT AND FILTERED BRINY SEAWATER FROM 'DE OOSTERSCHELDE'.
THE YE IN OYESTER44 STANDS FOR THE FISHERMAN'S VILLAGE OF YERSEKE, WORLD FAMOUS FOR ITS SEAFOOD, MUSSEL FARM BANKS AND OYSTER FARMING. LOCAL FISHER BOATS CARRY THE LETTERS YE FOR RECOGNITION. THIS IS WHERE OUR IMPERIAL OYSTERS ARE BEING CULTIVATED BY JEAN DHOOGE AND HIS FAMILY AT ‘DE OESTERIJ’, FOUNDED IN 1906. THE TYPICAL FLAT SHAPED OYSTERS ARE HIGHLY APPRECIATED BY CONNAISSEURS AND CAN BE FOUND IN SOME OF THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN THE WORLD.
