Caspiar’s Imperial caviar is made up of two very traditional sturgeons who’s origins are from the famed Caspian Sea; Sterlet Sturgeon (Acipenser ruthenus) and Siberian Sturgeon (Acipenser baerii). These sturgeons have an average of 6 years on them before we harvest the caviar so that the flavors are more profound and the size is at optimal.  This caviar is distinguished by its small to medium, semi-firm to very firm eggs. Unique coloring ranges from tinge green to light or dark brown. On the palate, a robust nuttiness of cashews melts away into a smooth, buttery finish. The texture is smooth and inviting and pairs perfectly with traditional blinis and crème.  Our Imperial Caviar is a chef’s dream as it is packed with flavor and low in salt (2.8-3%) so it compliments many classic dishes.

Please note: As each sturgeon is unique, so is the caviar they produce. As such, it is normal to experience variations in color within each grade. With regards to coloring, caviar pictured here is a good representation but is not necessarily indicative of all caviar within this grade.

One of the rarest caviars on the market, the Albino Sterlet Sturgeon (Acipenser ruthenus) produces caviar with yellowish/white pearls. Nicknamed, “white pearl,” this supreme caviar is soft to semi-firm and has a similar size to Sevruga with colors ranging from white to bright gold. The Sterlet sturgeon (Acipenser ruthenus) is a relatively small species of sturgeon from Eurasia and much like the Siberian sturgeon in that it is a freshwater species. It is native to large rivers that flow into the Black Sea, Azov Sea, and Caspian Sea. With a maximum weight of approximately 16 kg, it is the smallest of the sturgeon family. Yet, the species delivers excellent caviar – once favored by the Russian Tsars – and is not commonly seen in Western markets. The Golden Albinos Caviar has a distinct flavor and expect a pronounced rich flavor and a smooth finish with a tinge of citrus at the end. This caviar is produced in very limited supply each month.

This famed caviar is derived from the one and only Russian Sturgeon, Oscietra Ancipenser Gueldenstaedtii. Prized for its color ranging from grayish green to a dark golden brown, these eggs have a beautiful shine to them and the flavors are rich, nutty and leaves a lingering finish on your palate.  Because we prize this fish so much, we have let them grow to maturity, 9 years before harvesting the caviar.  This gives rise to a larger and firmer caviar that pops at the precise moment it reaches your palate.  We carefully add only 2.8% salt to cure the roe so that you can taste all the natural flavors of the Oscietra. This is a classic caviar that has adorned the tables of kings and nobles alike and is said to have been the favorite of the Tzars.
