Rich, complex and smooth are some of the words used to describe Osetra caviar
taste. Notable for its flavor variations Osetra caviar can be attributed to the fact that the Osetra caviar taste is uniquely influenced by the Sturgeons diet.
Osetra caviar refers to the roe harvested from the Osetra sturgeon (Acipenser Gueldenstaedtii) species. In addition, the word Osetra is the transcription of the Russian word “Ocetp” which means sturgeon in English. These particular genera achieve maturity at or around age 15. As a result, they can weigh up to 400 pounds and they typically have a lifespan of at least eighty years.
In recent years, the demand for Golden Imperial Osetra caviar has significantly increased.

The Osetra caviar available today, is harvested from the white or albino Osetra sturgeon. All our Osetra Caviar are preserved and flavor enhanced with less than 3% salt. The shimmering golden grains and succulent roe produced by this species is one of the rarest of caviar’s today and as such, it is in great demand by caviar consumers. The flavor range of this Osetra caviar taste ranges between earthy, nutty and fruity.
