Spencer Cove, WA
Capitals are tide tumbled to perfection in the pristine waters of Spencer Cove, WA. Grown off the sea floor and suspended in a nutrient rich water column built to rise and fall with the tides: they boast petite, polished shells and deep cups. Sweet, creamy meats punctuated by hints of melon and cucumber, a crisp sea salt flavor and a satisfyingly clean finish, make Capitals a Washington favorite and a #musttry.

CAPITAL OYSTERS, HISTORY MEETS TECHNOLOGY
Capital Oysters celebrates five generations of oyster farming experience with cutting edge cultivation and processing technologies. Owner and master farmer, Tom Bloomfield named his company for the capital and community of Washington which inspire him: Puget Sound, Washington has historically grown one of the best oysters in the world. And Capital takes great pride in creating yet another stellar Washington oyster. "Our method of growing oysters is built around suspension. The oyster bags don’t lay on the bottom nor do they float on the surface. The oyster is suspended in the middle of the water column and feeds on the cleanest and most optimal food."
The Gritty Details:
Tide tumbled. Oysters spend their entire life suspended off the bottom in bags hung on a line. They are flipped up and down by the tide twice a day, which naturally tumbles the oysters to promote very deep and smooth shells while also knocking off barnacles.
