It may be tempting to lament the decline of wild caviar, but instead lets celebrate the rise of sturgeon farming and the improvement in skills and farming techniques. Without such an improvement, it simply would not be possible to offer you caviar of this quality at such a remarkable price.
We have taken a tasting tour of caviar from lesser known sturgeon breeds being farmed across Europe in the search of a quality, low cost caviar to offer to you as our House Selection. This caviar is derived from Siberian/Adriatic hybrid sturgeon, produced on a farm in Italy which is certified by Friends of the Sea.
At the lower end of the price scale, caviar can be rather a disappointing experience as it can be rather bland and tasteless. Some appears to be no more than the by-product of White Sturgeon meat production. This is not the case with our House Selection - the only complaint we have received is that it has too much complex flavour for a caviar of this price!
The eggs are similar in size to Oscietra, but are rather darker in colour, some verging towards black. The caviar is lightly salted and has a mild, clean taste. It is surprisingly complex, with flavours of the sea sprinkled with citrus undertones. Best of all, at this price, you can have lots of it!
