Harvested from Russian sturgeon of the Acipenser Gueldenstaedtii variety, Osetra caviar (sometimes spelled as Ossetra, Oscietra, or even Asetra) is perhaps the most widely desired roe. Since Caspian Sea Osetra are now facing extinction in their natural habitat, Osetra caviar is sourced from farmed sturgeons today.
Osetra caviar is highly esteemed both for its striking presentation and its exceptional, rich flavor. With color ranging from light brown to the exceedingly rare golden Osetra, these caviar pearls have a firm but always creamy texture, delivering a luxurious impression from the first moment.
Khavyar’s Osetra Supreme is sourced from high-pedigree Osetra Russian sturgeon that are sustainably farm-raised. The verified Russian stock ensures that these farmed sturgeons are just as exquisite as those from the Caspian Sea, while also remaining committed to responsible environmental practices that support Caspian sturgeon conservation.
Osetra sturgeon caviar is one of the most coveted delicacies in the world, and should be served with the utmost care. Honor the customary Russian preparation for these Russian sturgeon eggs by presenting them atop blini, secured in place by a dollop of crème fraîche — and be sure to sample some ice-cold vodka in between servings to truly indulge in the Russian tradition.
