A Guide to the World's Finest Caviar: Beluga, Osetra, Baerii, and More

Caviar is a luxury food that has been enjoyed by royalty and aristocrats for centuries. It is made from the eggs of sturgeon, a prehistoric fish that can live for over 100 years. Caviar is prized for its delicate texture and rich, buttery flavour. There are several different types of caviar, each with its own unique characteristics.

Beluga caviar is the most expensive and rarest type of caviar. It is harvested from the beluga sturgeon, which can grow up to 30 feet long and weigh up to 3,000 pounds. Beluga caviar has large, smooth eggs with a delicate texture and a buttery, nutty flavour. Our Beluga caviar is sourced from the Caspian Sea, which is known for producing some of the world's finest caviar.

Golden Reserve Osetra caviar is another high-end variety of caviar. It is harvested from the Osetra sturgeon, which can be found in the Caspian Sea and other bodies of water in Eastern Europe and Asia. Golden Reserve Osetra caviar has medium-sized eggs with a nutty, earthy flavour and a creamy texture.

Classic Osetra caviar is another type of caviar that comes from the Osetra sturgeon. It has a slightly smaller egg size than the Golden Reserve Osetra caviar and a more pronounced nutty flavour.

Royal Baerii caviar is harvested from the Baerii sturgeon, which is commonly farmed in Italy and other countries in Europe, such as France and Germany. It has a medium-sized egg with a subtle flavour that is often described as buttery and slightly sweet.

Canadian White Sturgeon caviar is harvested from the white sturgeon, which is native to the Pacific coast of North America. It has a medium-sized egg with a creamy texture and a mild, buttery flavour.

European Trout Roe is a popular alternative to traditional caviar. It has a smaller, orange egg with a delicate texture and a mild, slightly sweet flavour.

Salmon roe is another popular alternative to traditional caviar. It has a larger, orange egg with a poppy texture and a slightly salty flavour.

To serve caviar, it is traditionally served on blinis, which are small, thin pancakes made from buckwheat flour. Blinis provide a neutral base that allows the delicate flavour of the caviar to shine through. They are typically topped with a dollop of crème fraîche and a small spoonful of caviar.

When serving caviar, it is important to use a non-metallic spoon, such as a mother of pearl spoon, to avoid altering the taste of the caviar. Mother of pearl spoons are gentle on the delicate eggs and do not react with the caviar, ensuring the best possible flavour.

At our store, we offer a variety of different types of caviar, including all the ones mentioned here. We also offer blinis and mother of pearl spoons to serve with the caviar, so you can enjoy the perfect caviar experience at home. Whether you are a caviar connoisseur or just want to try this luxurious delicacy for the first time, we have something to suit your taste and budget.
