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 … Continue reading

Is all caviar farmed?

We still do get asked this question by customers, and the simple answer is “Yes”. Although many people still firmly associate caviar with Russia, Iran and the Caspian Sea, the reality today is very different. Some twenty years ago, the restrictions on fishing for wild sturgeon in the Caspian became looser. At much the same time, many of the countries … Continue reading

The White Sturgeon is also known as Transmontanus and the Russian Sturgeon is better known as Oscietra. Its scientific name is tricky to spell, so I … Continue reading

You say Asetra, I say Oscietra………..

Looking around at various outlets, it can be rather confusing to identify real Oscietra Caviar. Now, that is the spelling that we use at Caspian Caviar, but various other spellings are also used. I have seen: Ossetra Caviar, Osetra Caviar as well as Asetra Caviar. What does it all mean? It is thought that Oscietra/Ossetra/Osetra/Asetra is derived from the Russian … Continue reading
