Drink Dry partners with Dibba Bay Oyster Festival to find the perfect pairing!
Oyster lovers rejoice, Dibba Bay has created a 10 day festival just for you, and Drink Dry will see you there..
After its roaring success last year, premium oyster farm Dibba Bay has decided to bring back their Oyster Festival for another year, and this time it’s bigger and better than ever. Running from the 24th of February to the 5th of March, the festival includes special menus in the best restaurants across the UAE, exclusive in-store activation, our open farm tours and the legendary ‘Dibba Bay Shuck Off’ where UAE chefs can battle it out for the top prize. Read on to find out what Drink Dry will be adding to this exciting celebration!
Dibba Bay was pioneered in 2016 by Ramie Murray, who had the courage to leap into the unknown and ask if oysters could be grown in the waters of the United Arab Emirates. This risk certainly paid off, with their oysters becoming a triumph amongst the culinary scene of the Emirates. The farms themselves are truly a sight to behold, 9 hectares of pristine, glistening seawater in the Indian Ocean under the backdrop of the Hajar Mountains.
Don’t miss out on the exclusive farm tour where you can see this spectacle for yourself. On the tour you’ll be provided with a tour from the founder himself, a scenic boat ride, a goodie bag and an oyster tasting experience with Drink Dry’s favourite ‘French Bloom Non-Alcoholic Wine’. The best quality oysters deserve the best quality pairing, and that’s why we have chosen French Bloom Le Blanc; it offers a mineral freshness with spicy citrus and white flower notes that will pair perfectly with the truly gourmet oysters on offer at Dibba Bay. French Bloom Le Blanc is also completely alcohol-free with no preservatives or added sugar, ensuring you can enjoy it while staying focused on the complex tastes of the oysters.
Not a fan of the sparkling tastes of French Bloom Non-Alcoholic Wine? Not to worry, we will also be bringing along some of our favourite Natureo Non-Alcoholic wines for a bit of variety, so you’re guaranteed to find the pair that suits your palette.
Tickets to the Farm tour are available on the Dibba Bay website, along with information on the other parts of the festival and other premium partners. Whether you’re an oyster expert or newbie, this is certainly a celebration you won’t want to miss. Get 10% off with code DRINKDRY - see you there!
