This Beluga Caviar is one of the best we have tasted, and many of our regular customers agree. We introduced it to our range in 2013 and it quickly became a customer favourite. It is one of our best selling caviars.
Beluga Caviar has the largest egg and is the most expensive of all the usual sturgeon caviars. This Beluga caviar is from Huso Huso/Baerii (Beluga/Siberian) hybrid stock, which is the mainstay of farmed Beluga production as it reaches maturity some 10 years quicker than a pure Beluga sturgeon. The caviar has the egg size and taste expected of Beluga, but not the price.
It comes from a spring fed, out door farm in northern Italy where the attention to detail is phenomenal. The water quality, temperature, food and processing is all rigorously monitored, and the results are plain to taste.
The eggs are dark grey in colour, c3mm in diameter and have a fine creamy taste, with a hint of walnut.
