Join us on our caviar voyage of discovery at Caviar Artisan as we reveal Royal Baerii Caviar from different corners of the globe, every month.
Produced from the Siberian Sturgeon, Acipenser Baerii is being increasingly farmed around the world as it's more adaptable and reaches maturity earlier than other sturgeon, at around 8 years old. The country editions will be available for purchase for a limited period on Caviar Artisan.
Produced in the heart of the Po Valley in Northern Italy, with over 150 acres of fresh spring water creating the foundation of an excellent ecosystem that ensures authenticity and freshness. Imperial Oscietra comes to us from the sturgeon species Acipenser Gueldenstaedtii. The time required to harvest this classic caviar is at least 10 years, its firm grains are distinctively nutty in taste, cloaked in varying tones from dark brown to beige. This traditionally established Italian caviar is available on our website.
Imperial Oscietra Gold is one of the most expensive types of caviar. Whilst comes it comes in varying colours, the lighter golden coloured eggs are the most sought after and are harvested from the oldest of sturgeon. It's reputation is from the days when the Shah of Iran is said to have eaten all that was produced!
Today, China is being hailed as the upcoming giant of sustainable caviar production. Guided by globally renowned experts, China has mastered the art of producing the light golden Oscietra caviar that parallels (in both looks and taste), the highly desired (but no longer legally sold) precious wild caviar. So much so, that Michelin star restaurants in England, France and Germany are now using Chinese caviar.
Imperial Oscietra Gold comes to us from the pristine waters of Lake Qiandao, China, otherwise known as "the thousand island lake" covering over 570 square kilometres of cool and clear waters.
The time required to harvest this iconic caviar can be 12-15 years. This is the royalty of our Oscietra selection from a pure Acipenser Gueldenstaedtii Sturgeon species - it boasts silkier, glossier and fatter caviar pearls and is available to purchase for same day delivery (London areas).
