Our Oscietra is sourced from a cold water, out door farm in northern Italy. The good sized egg makes it very impressive to the eye. The eggs are about 3mm diameter with a colour varying from a rich golden brown to dark tobacco brown. This Oscietra has a mellow nutty flavour, that lingers long on the palate and longer in the mind, just as a really good caviar should.
Due to our close association with the producers, we have an allocation of their very best Oscietra. It has the same fantastic taste as the normal Oscietra, but the Royal Oscietra is the cream of the crop and is the largest eggs of the harvest. A truly great caviar.
Oscietra Caviar is one of the famous Caspian caviars and comes from the Oscietra (aka Russian) Sturgeon, which has the Latin name of Gueldenstaedtii. It is farmed in various European countries as well as else where in the world. However, it is amazing how the flavours vary from country to country and farm to farm, although it is the same type of sturgeon. We have carried out extensive tastings and are convinced that there is not a better Oscietra on the market, and certainly not at this price.
