For customers keen on our excellent royal oscietra caviar – we are selling two tins at £100 (so £50 each) compared to the single unit price of £55, which means a £10 saving for the two tins. These will typically have 3-4 weeks life when they reach you and need to be stored in a fridge.
Our Royal Oscietra is sourced from a cold water, outdoor farm in northern Italy. The good-sized egg makes it impressive to the eye. The eggs are about 3mm diameter with a colour varying from a rich golden brown to dark tobacco brown.
It has a mellow nutty flavour, that lingers long on the palate and longer in the mind, just as a really good caviar should.
Due to our close association with the producer, we have an allocation of their very best Oscietra. It has the same fantastic taste as our normal Oscietra, but the Royal Oscietra is the cream of the crop and is the largest eggs of the harvest. A truly great caviar.
Oscietra Caviar is one of the famous Caspian caviars and comes from the Oscietra (aka Russian) Sturgeon, which has the Latin name of Gueldenstaedtii. It is farmed in various European countries as well as else where in the world. However, it is amazing how the flavours vary from country to country and farm to farm, although it is the same type of sturgeon. We have carried out extensive tastings and are convinced that there is not a better Oscietra on the market, and certainly not at this price.
We have also written a few tips on “How To Store Caviar? A Guide To Caviar Storage“.

Oscietra Caviar Storage:
Your royal oscietra caviar tins need to be refrigerated upon receipt. Once opened, consume within 48 hours. Caviar can be stored in a domestic fridge from -2c to +4c (the colder the better!) until the best before date (typically 3-4 weeks). When storing caviar in your fridge, it helps to store it at the back of the fridge on the bottom shelf where it is coolest and temperature does not fluctuate.
How best to enjoy your Royal oscietra caviar?
1. Eat a little on a spoon to enjoy the taste in it’s purest form!
2. Add a little to a blini, with butter or sour cream and chives – makes a great canape.
3. Can be enjoyed on toasted dark rye bread with scrambled eggs.
4. Traditionally drinks to accompany caviar include chilled vodka or champagne.
