SOLD OUT Let the Caviar come to you - Astrea caviar deals

Since its inception, Wine Berserkers has championed the small producer in the wine industry, as well as other small businesses related to wine (gourmet foods, wine accessories, etc) and now our friends in the wine industry who own small businesses have been presented with a great burden during the mandatory closures of wineries and bars. In the spirit of Wine Berserkers, and the shadow of BerserkerDay, let's show our support and help our friends in this industry, supporting them with our business.

This forum will be open to all small businesses in the wine industry. Tentatively we'll close it in 2 weeks, but let's see how things go...

SOLD OUT Let the Caviar come to you - Astrea caviar deals

#1 Post by c fu » March 16th, 2020, 9:56 am

We have a small number of 50g tins left for our Baerii and Schrenckii breeds. Roughly 30 tins left of each size. Offering 30% off all of them.

Shipping will be done on a consolidated basis. We will have someone from the warehouse ship twice during the week opposed to immediately due to our closure of our offices for Covid-19.

I've had the opportunity to sell some of Astrea's delicious caviar here before and I'm happy to say I have the go-ahead to do so again for Berserkerday. These are all freshly packed in this past week so you'll be getting the freshest possible caviar.

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.
I'll be offering three types of caviar for individual sale and a few bundles.

Caviar has high nutritional content and when stored well lasts a long time. It's perfect emergency rations.

Order in!

Thanks guys, really appreciate it! Due to the Covid issues we have to put a stop on orders for awhile as restaurants (our biggest clients by far) are not making purchases for the foreseeable future. Sucks for a company that's less than 6 months in business! But we will carry on :D
