Cultivated from the A. Gueldenstaedtii sturgeon, an ancient species indigenous to the Caspian Sea. 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 best caviar in the world.
Fresh caviar (not pasteurized).
All Calvisius caviar is certified “Friend of the Sea” sustainable as well as BRC and IFS ‘high level’.
Special order only: 50g, 125g, 250g, 500g and 1kg tins. Requires 2-3 day turnaround for delivery.

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.
Vertically integrated, Calvisius is one of a handful of caviar producers who not only own their farms but also control packing with the Calvisius brand. Like a fine wine, they oversee production from the beginning to the end, 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 Calvisius is known for, year after year.
Best served simply with a small dollop of crème fraiche over a blini or small potato and a scoop of Calvisius on top!
Unopened: up to a 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.
