Our famous Amur Prestige caviar is a hybrid between the Amur Sturgeon (Acipenser Schrenckii) and the Huso Dauricus, also known as the river Beluga. They are claimed to be the largest freshwater fish in the world, with a maximum size of at least 1,000 kg and 5.6 m. The Amur sturgeon is one of the biggest of the sturgeon family. Because we prize this fish so much, we have let them grow to maturity, 15-17 years before harvesting the caviar. The roe is larger than the Oscietre at about 3.2mm and the color is a light brownish green tinge that pops on your mouth and expresses “umami” like nothing you have ever tasted. We only add around 3.2% salt to keep the integrity of the flavor so you and top Chefs can enjoy this amazing caviar at it’s best.
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.
