Pressed Caviar


The culmination of broken-grain, imported Osetra and Sevruga, pressed together to form a rich and concentrated caviar mass.

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.
