Special Reserve Beluga (Pure Huso Huso)
Order Now – Get It By Tuesday 6th December Mainland UK
We seldom stock pure Huso Huso Beluga caviar due to the difficulty of finding excellent quality caviar at a reasonable price. We have tasted many pure Belugas that dont look the part, dont taste the part and/or are offered at a silly price. We did like our last offering but sadly it has now moved into the “silly price” bracket.
So we have found a new supplier in an outdoor farm in Greece. This example really does tick all the boxes. Do take a look at the picture of the caviar pre-tinning. It really is very impressive on the eye and tastes gorgeous as well.
The eggs are very light grey and 3-3.5mm in diameter. What does it taste like? It has a delicate, creamy subtlety that is a joy on the palate. It should be savoured with few additions, preferably enjoyed on its own.
Pure Beluga (Huso Huso) is not widely farmed as it takes 18-20 years to mature. Even after all that time, there is no guarantee that the fish will produce really good caviar. We have seen many poor quality examples but were thrilled to be able to source this example.
All caviar have best before dates well into next year and can now be ordered for Christmas/ New Year’s Eve providing they are stored between -2c to +4c in your fridge.

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.

Caviar can be stored in a domestic fridge from 0-4c (the closer to 0c the better!) 4 weeks and more.
