Farmed Beluga

ja belugaOur farmed Chinese caviar comes from a fresh water reservoir, approximately 50,000 hectares in size primarily used as a source of drinking water. Beluga caviar is the most prestigious of the caviars’. This is because Beluga is the largest species of sturgeon; they grow up to 30 feet long and weigh up to 3,300pounds. The female Beluga does not mature to produce roe for 18 to 20 years, although they can live for 100 years. The Beluga’s scarcity makes it a very rare and exquisite treat. The ‘berries’ of the Beluga are the most fragile of the caviar grades, and the largest (3mm to 4mm diameter), they are soft in texture, heavy and ripe, and range from pale silver to pearl grey to black in colour. The taste is soft, buttery and delicate. Our caviar is also preserved in first grade salt from Russia making the taste mild yet mouth watering.

Available in 30g, 50g and 125g tins
