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.
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!
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. In the past, we have offered various interesting hybrid caviars as House Selection. However, we have now been able to do a great deal with our friends in northern Italy and offer this pure Siberian (Baerii) caviar as House Selection. Long standing customers may recall it as it was our original Sibirskye.
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!
We have also written a few tips on “How To Store Caviar? A Guide To Caviar Storage“.

What is Borax?
Borax, also known as Sodium borate, is a form of salt that is traditionally used in caviar production. It helps in the preservation process, improves consistency and also enhances the flavour.

Please note that all caviar products should be refrigerated upon receipt. Once opened, consume within 48 hours. Caviar can be stored in a domestic fridge from -2c to +4c (the colder and closer to 0c the better!) 4 weeks and more. When storing caviar in your fridge, it is important to store it at the back of the fridge on the bottom shelf where it is coolest and temperature does not fluctuate.
