This Russian sturgeon (A. gueldenstaedtii) is an ancient species indigenous to the Caspian Sea. Firm, medium-sized eggs, dark brown in color sometimes with a golden hue. The Oscietra Classic is a feminine caviar with delicate, smooth flavors and a nuanced nuttiness. The finish is complex with just a hint of lingering saltiness. The princess of Oscietras. A true Malassol (low salt) caviar.
The fishing of wild sturgeon is illegal worldwide which has created the need for sturgeon farms around the globe. Calvisius has been farming sturgeon for over 30 years and through diligent research and development, is producing some of the finest caviar in the world.
This is a fresh caviar (not pasteurized).
All Calvisius caviar is certified sustainable by “Friend of the Sea” as well as BRC and IFS ‘high level’ certified.
You can special order any size you want including 500g and larger! Delivery time is between 3-5 days depending when order is placed.

Best served simply with a small dollop of crème fraiche over a blini or small potato and a scoop of Calvisius on top!
Vertically integrated, Calvisius is one of a handful of caviar producers who not only own their farms but also controls the packing of the Calvisius brand. Production is monitored from the start of the sturgeon’s life to the end consumer, roe to roe. Because there is no repacking by a third party, you can be assured each tin will produce the same delicious consistent quality that Calvisius is known for, year after year.
Unopened: up to 3 months. Each tin has an expiration date on the bottom. Once opened, is best to consume within 24 to 48 hours as off flavors can develop. Can be eaten days later, but like a wine, oxidation will change the fresh flavors of the caviar.
