Second August Caviar Tasting

This has been a busy month for tasting, with several producers sending samples in the hope of being selected for our range. After our last tasting of several Siberian (Baerii) caviars, this time we looked at the more unusual. We tried a Sevruga and a Golden Sterlet, both from farms in Italy. To add a little context we also included some of our Royal Oscietra. I have often said that sourcing good Sevruga is a tricky job, and I had high hopes for this example. It looked the part –...

August Baerii Tasting

For a little while now, we have been planning to change our supply of Siberian Caviar. The posh name for the Siberian Sturgeon is Baerii and we sell it as Sibirskye, which is Russian for Siberian. Our current supply is very good and is very popular, but we do like to freshen things up occasionally so a new Baerri seemed a good idea. Baerri is the mainstay of the sturgeon farming industry as it matures relatively quickly and produces very good caviar. Recent years have seen an increase in the... Read More

OFFERS FOR ROYAL ASCOT AND FATHERS’ DAY

June sees two big events taking place, or one – depending on your opinion. First up is Fathers’ Day this coming Sunday, when we all have the chance to thank the down trodden and neglected Fathers for their selfless self sacrifice, both financially and emotionally, in their oft derided efforts to produce well rounded off spring. For them, we offer 10% off our ever popular House Selection as well as a range of House Selection gifts. Next up is Royal Ascot. So what better than 10% off our Royal Oscietra.... Read More

JUNE CAVIAR TASTING

It is always nice to begin the month with a tasting session. We had two samples to have a go at, and I also fancied putting in some of our Royal Oscietra just to gain people’s reaction. I do like to continually test our range to make sure it is as good as it can be. First up, was some Bester Caviar. “Bester?” I hear you say, “What on earth is that?”. It is, in fact, a fairly common hybrid of Huso Huso x Ruthenus (Sterlet). I say fairly common... Read More

Spring Bank Holiday Offer

10% OFF ALL BELUGA With the Spring Bank Holiday on the horizon, it seems a good time to spread a little offer over all our Beluga. Our Royal Beluga is a long term customer favourite. It is derived from hybrid sturgeon (Huso Huso crossed with Siberian) and hence offers a great caviar at a sensible price. Then our Special Reserve Beluga is the real McCoy – pure Huso Huso with the largest eggs and creamy flavour for those special occasions, or just some indulgence! Offer runs until the Bank Holiday....

February Caviar Tasting at Caspian Caviar

I have often been heard to remark how the over all quality of farmed caviar has improved over the last 5 or so years. Once upon a time, the quality of samples was a bit of a lottery. Recently, the samples have been consistently good, providing good competition across the range. However, some samples we received earlier this month were a throw back to earlier, simpler times, when would-be suppliers could be discounted with ease. The farm lay further east than where we normally source and was situated in a... Read More

Brexit Caviar Crisis?

Despite all the Brexit talk, no one in the press seems to have covered the important issue of what will happen to caviar supplies come April 2019. At present, importing caviar from within the EU could not be easier. We place an order with the producer and they send it to us – no problem at all. Importing caviar from outside the EU is not so easy. We need to obtain a CITES import licence which costs £70 and can take up to 6 weeks. The supplier needs to supply... Read More

Launch of Special Reserve Beluga

SPECIAL RESERVE BELUGA LAUNCH OFFER – 10% OFF It is quite a while since we listed a pure Beluga (Huso Huso) caviar and I have often written about the difficulty of finding really good Beluga (Huso Huso) caviar at a sensible price. This autumn, we have managed to source some really excellent Beluga (Huso Huso) and we have secured a shipment at a cracking price. As we are really keen that you try it, we have even given it a special launch price, 10% below its normal price. This will... Read More
