IMPERIAL RESERVE
Acipenser Huso/Schrenki

From the Amur River between China and Russia comes this exquisite caviar produced from the offspring of Huso dauricus & Acipenser schrenkii sturgeon. Banned from export and harvest to protect wild stocks, the Schrenki Sturgeon was among many species restocked in the 1990s to be aquacultured for its meat, then soon after for its roe. Under the direction of Iranian Master Caviar Specialists, these fish are meticulously harvested using some of the most advanced aquaculture methods available today.

This large river sturgeon matures in 7-10 years and produces caviar which is light brown to light grey in color, has a crisp firm texture, and a full-bodied flavor with a hint of almond nuttiness on the palate. Similar to the highest quality Osetra, we find the flavor and quality of this import to be exceptional.

ROYAL BELGIAN OSETRA
Acipenser Gueldenstaedti

What started in Belgium as a fish feed production company in the 1980s, Royal Belgium Caviar has since evolved and is now considered one of Europe’s most acclaimed producers of caviars. In the early nineties, biologist Dr. Willy Verdonck was engaged in the breeding of sturgeon caviar, which yielded the first results in 2002. Through years of intensive research, Dr. Verdonck managed to completely control the breeding cycle of some sturgeon species (and he is now considered an international authority on caviar production).

Royal Belgian Osetra Caviar is true “Osetra” caviar produced by the eggs of Russian sturgeon. This caviar boasts medium-sized pearls with striking colors and pronounced, pleasing “nuttiness” in flavor. It’s slightly earthy flavor, malossol cure (lightly salted), combined with a pleasant texture makes Royal Belgian Osetra a top product to be instantly appreciated by every caviar aficionado.

ROYAL BELGIAN PLATINUM
Acipenser Gueldenstaedi/Baerii

What started in Belgium as a fish feed production company in the 1980s, Royal Belgium Caviar has since evolved and is now considered one of Europe’s most acclaimed producers of caviars. In the early nineties, biologist Dr. Willy Verdonck was engaged in the breeding of sturgeon caviar, which yielded the first results in 2002. Through years of intensive research, Dr. Verdonck managed to completely control the breeding cycle of some sturgeon species (and he is now considered an international authority on caviar production).

The eggs used for this Royal Belgian Platinum Caviar originate from a hybrid sturgeon. This sturgeon is a crossbreed between two caviar producing species the Russian Osetra Sturgeon and the Siberian Sturgeon. The breed combines a number of excellent characteristics from both parental species: a pleasing color varying from gray-green to dark olive, a larger grain size of 3mm or more, and a rich flavor that in a blind taste test turned out to be most similar to the coveted Osetra. This artisanally produced caviar is unlike any Guelden-Baerii caviar on the global market today.

ROYAL BELGIAN SIBERIAN
Acipenser Baerii

What started in Belgium as a fish feed production company in the 1980s, Royal Belgium Caviar has since evolved and is now considered one of Europe’s most acclaimed producers of caviars. In the early nineties, biologist Dr. Willy Verdonck was engaged in the breeding of sturgeon caviar, which yielded the first results in 2002. Through years of intensive research, Dr. Verdonck managed to completely control the breeding cycle of some sturgeon species (and he is now considered an international authority on caviar production).

Royal Belgian Siberian Caviar comes from a broodstock of Siberian sturgeon (Acipenser baerii) – a cold-loving species which thrives in aquaculture and produces exceptional, dark eggs that have a mildly sweet, almost buttery flavor. Though the roe of the Siberian sturgeon is commonly on the smaller side, the eggs of the Royal Belgian Siberian range from 2.8 to 3 mm in diameter – making them larger than most Siberian caviars on the market, almost the size of Beluga. Consistent and exquisite, the firm grain is robust with an attractive, almost mirror-like sheen.

American Spoonbill
Polydon Spathula (Spoonbill or Paddlefish)

The roe from this sturgeon relative has gained popularity with the dining public and has found its way on to some of the nation’s finest menus. Often referred to as “American Sturgeon” or “Paddlefish Caviar”, it is wild harvested from tributaries of the Mississippi and Tennessee Rivers. Prized for its elegant flavor at a manageable price, this caviar exhibits many of the characteristics of its Caspian cousins: consistent sizing of the eggs, a steely-gray sheen and a rich, smooth, creamy flavor. At first glance, it bears a striking resemblance to Sevruga for its size and color – and a nutty flavor that is reminiscent of that of the Osetra. All at a price that is a mere fraction of the Caspian caviars.

The growing appeal and lower cost of this domestic caviar is putting this roe on many menus across the country.

Its popularity stems from its quality of flavor and texture – and the small pearls remind many connoisseurs of wild Caspian Sevruga caviar.
