Product Detail

Extremely rare in the world, this is a very special caviar from the true Oscietra (A. gueldenstaedtii) species that produces its characteristic golden egg. Because of this Russian sturgeon's scarcity, it is available to the U.S. market in limited quantities. You will taste the difference!

Velvety, large firm eggs with a pearlescent onyx color washed in golden amber.  Seductive round umami flavors of pine nuts, fresh pecans and a touch of seafoam brine gives this Imperial a long, delicate and distinctive finish.

The High Priestess of Oscietras! Only the finest roe is collected for the golden Oscietra Imperial. The roe is harvested after a 12-14 year maturation period which ensures a complex intensity of flavors. 

All Calvisius caviar is certified sustainable by "Friend of the Sea" as well as BRC and IFS 'high level' certified.

ABOUT FARMED STURGEON: 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).

SHELF LIFE:

Unopened: lasts up to 3+ months. Each tin has an best by 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 an opened wine, oxidation will change the fresh flavors of the caviar.
