Caviar

Categorycaviar1_threetins

All of our caviar is hand-packed fresh from original tins, against each specific order.

We offer a unique, unsurpassed selection of the finest, first-quality Malossol caviar available, directly sourced and hand-selected from each harvest. Working in cooperation with CITES (the Convention of Internationally Traded Endangered Species), Caviar Russe supports aggressive reinvestment into and preservation of the Caspian and Black Sea regions, as well as the development of sustainable aquaculture alternatives.

Beluga Caviar

(Huso huso)

The female beluga sturgeon takes up to twenty-five years to mature and produce eggs. Beluga caviar is the largest-grain caviar and varies in color from light to dark gray. These Beluga pearls are the most delicate and have a mild buttery flavor.

Beluga was banned from further import to the United States, as of fall 2005. For those who prefer the inherent mild buttery richness of Beluga Malossol caviar, we suggest the extremely rare Platinum Osetra caviar.

Osetra Caviar

(Acipenser gueldenstaedtii)

The female Osetra require up to ten years to produce eggs and offer medium-grain caviar of a light to dark brown color with golden highlights. These eggs are firmer in contrast to Beluga and have a nutty flavor. Golden Osetra caviar is a rare form of Osetra that is golden yellow in color and has abundantly rich flavor.

Sevruga Caviar

(Acipenser Stellatus)

SEVRUGA (Acipenser stellatus) The female Sevruga sturgeon, also known as the Stellate or Star Sturgeon, inhabits the Caspian Sea in the wild, predominately spawning to the Volga and Ural rivers. Sevruga has been traditionally known to be the most common of the commercial sturgeon species of the Caspian, and yet least common produced by aquaculture.

Sevruga are generally smaller and mature earlier than the Osetra after only 7 years, and given their early maturation, they have in past been the most plentiful of wild stocks.

Sevruga in the wild may grow to lengths of up to 5 feet and at a weight of close to 150 lbs. They are most distinguished by their long snout and elongated form.

Sevruga caviar is of a small grain that is sometimes light in color but most often dark grey and is very flavorful, offering an abundantly rich profile with excellent balance and finish.

The eggs of the Sevruga are a wonderful treat when available.

Sterlet Caviar

(Acipenser Ruthenus)

Female Sterlet mature after five to seven years and produce a small-grain caviar. Sterlet caviar is light to dark gray in color and has a distinctively strong and intense flavor.

Pressed Caviar

Caviar which is judged unsuitable to be served as whole-grain (or zernistaya) becomes the perfect candidate for pressed caviar. Through a gentle curing and pressing process, pressed caviar achieves a highly concentrated consistency, suitable for slicing and spreading. Historically known as payusnaya, pressed caviar provided the alternative to czarist ice-block storage in times before refrigeration, and continues to be sought after by those who prize its unique, intense flavor.

North American Sturgeon

(Acipenser transmountanus, Scaphyrnchus plantorynchus)

The Pacific sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus) most commonly indigenous to the Northern Pacific Coast, and most prevalent in the Snake, Sacramento, Columbia, and Willamette Rivers. The Pacific sturgeon is considered the largest of all the domestic sturgeon, weighing as much as a thousand pounds in the wild, with the female maturing at age 10 or 11. The caviar derived from the transmontanus overall is medium to large in grain, light grey to black in complexion, and generally very mild in flavor.

Shovelnose (Scaphirhynchus plantorhynchus), also known as hackleback, are the smallest domestic sturgeon, reaching upwards of about one meter. They are mostly populated in the midwest of the United States. The shovelnose weigh up to twenty-five pounds, and the female begins to produce caviar around the age of seven, offering a small- to mid-sized, rich and flavorful sturgeon caviar.
