IN THE MEANTIME: HERE'S 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 FROM LOCAL AND ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS.
OYESTER44 IS AN ORIGINAL DUTCH BOTANICAL VODKA WITH STRONG MARITIME ELEMENTS AND ACTUAL 'TERROIR'. THE BASE IS A CLEAN AND PURE GRAIN ALCOHOL WHICH IS INFUSED WITH DISTILLATES MADE FROM LOCAL OYSTERS, LEMON BALM, VERVAIN AND ORGANIC POTATOES. WE ADD DROPS OF FILTERED SEAWATER AS A FINISHING TOUCH.
THE YE IN OYESTER44 STANDS FOR THE FISHING VILLAGE OF YERSEKE, WORLD FAMOUS FOR ITS OYSTER FARMING AND MUSSEL FARM BANKS. LOCAL FISHING 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’ SINCE 1906. THE TYPICAL FLAT SHAPED OYSTERS ARE HIGHLY APPRECIATED BY CONNAISSEURS.
