A little about the caviar


The sturgeon are raised 6,500ft above sea level. The pure spring water, stable year-round temperature and lack of pollution ensure the best growing condition for our sturgeons. At such high altitude our fish grow slower, and as a result, lay eggs that are larger in size and more complex in flavor.

Our sturgeons range in age from 10 to over 25 years old. For reference, most caviar is produced from fish that are anywhere from five to eight years old. When they reach maturity, we don’t extract the eggs until the third roe production cycle. The fish absorb the first two roe cycles, which gives them additional nutrition to produce bigger and more flavorful eggs in the third cycle.

Before extraction, we transfer the fish into low-temperature fish ponds with controlled conditions of 8% salt content and a temperature of 40-45 degrees Fahrenheit. There they reside for two months to mimic deep sea conditions. Once extracted, the eggs are cleaned and cured with less than 3% salt content before going through an extended aging period of one to four months. These practices add complexity and depth to our caviar’s flavor.

Our sturgeons fish are grown in natural spring water. We never treat them with antibiotics, instead, we use proprietary natural healing organic herbs to boost immunity. We do not use borax as a preservative, nor do we use food coloring to enhance the color of our eggs. What you see and taste is all natural, a product of carefully raised, mature sturgeon combined with a specialized aging process we have perfected. Similar to wine making, the process of curing and aging caviar is a closely guarded trade secret, an art form unto itself.



#1 - Our Premier Selection - Baerii sturgeon. Our Baerii caviar is harvested from pure bred Siberian Acipenser Baerii sturgeons of at least 10 in age. The eggs are medium in size with black to pearl grey tone, silky texture and long, pure finish of the ocean. Aged 1-2 months.

#2 - Our other Premier Selection and most popular - Kaluga Hybrid. Our Kaluga hybrid caviar is harvested from cross bred Huso Dauricus and Acipenser Schrenckii sturgeons of at least twelve years in age. The eggs are large in size, pearl grey to golden brown in color. It has a rich yet elegant creamy flavor with firm and crisp texture complemented by persistent, complex finish. Aged 1-2 months.

#3 - One of our flagship caviar Grand selection Schrenckii Sturgeon. Amur Sturgeon caviar--is harvested from pure bred Acipenser Schrenckii sturgeons from Heilongjiang, a north eastern province that borders Russia. Sturgeons are 12 to 16 years in age and their eggs are medium to large in size, light brown or grey to golden in color, with a bright golden shimmer.

I'm not sure if it's on purpose or not, but if you order a 50g Schrenckii with the discount code, you get shipping tacked on, which basically undoes the discount.

Correct

The 25% code brings it under the $185 threshold for free shipping. Similar to other companies that offer free shipping plus discount codes, your free shipping triggers after your codes. (wine.com comes to mind). But if you order over $185 post discount, you get free shipping

Just a quick heads-up to note great customer service here, as well as great Caviar. (Our favorite is the Schrenckii--amazing purity and depth of flavor.) We ordered and they accidentally sent a week early, so we ended up with an extra 30grams, as they will be sending again gratis next week. Definitely helps the holiday cheer; many thanks to Charlie and his crew!

Hi Charlie- Is the banner on pre-order still accurate? Or is it shippable now? (I ordered and just need to know when to expect ETA)


Edit- Never mind- shipped!
