Winner Great Taste 2020 1 star, 2019 3 Stars. Great British Food Awards 2020 Highly commended.

Loch Fyne Oysters have received the Great Taste 2020 1 star and 2019 3 Star award, the highest possible rating from the largest and most trusted food and drink awards. The judges commented: "They taste so fresh, as if they have just been shucked straight from the ocean. Closing ones eyes we are still at the seaside, listening to the waves. Stunning, a real treat!"

The taste of an individual oyster very much reflects the environment in which it is grown – from open sea sites and bays to sea lochs with lower salt levels. After 2-3 years of care and attention, our oysters reach marketable size. Once harvested, every oyster is graded and purified in filtered natural seawater here at Cairndow.
