Oyster Infused Vodka?
Oh, yes! As reported in Food & Wine magazine, a distillery in Rhode Island is now making oyster vodka—the first in the world. Named Ostreida, the spirit is made by distilling local oysters along with a neutral corn-based spirit. Manya Rubinstein, the distillery’s co-founder and CEO, states that the spirit, “reads like a dirty martini.” The idea of pairing something sealike with vodka is, of course, not new. As a pairing, vodka and caviar pairing go back thousands of years.
