most limited variety of caviar, the Volga Reserve is the definitive
beluga substitute. An exceedingly limited quantity of this delicate roe
has in the past been reserved for a select few of our customers as
stocks were often spoken for months before arrival.
Volga Reserve, which we consider the pinnacle for the current caviar
market, is available for purchase in limited quantities. Named for the
most famous river leading into the Caspian Sea and for this sturgeon's
natural habitat, the Reserve features a savory balance of light
brininess and luscious creaminess that is akin to the renowned Beluga.
most distinguishing characteristic of this caviar is due to the fact that
it is derived from Ossetra Sturgeon aged 35 or older. Most Caspian
caviar are sourced from sturgeon aged 10 to 20 years old, as sturgeon of
this age range are both fertile and relatively abundant. Ossetra
Sturgeon aged 35 or older are rare to say the least, and as a result of
their age and larger size, produce roe that are smooth and supple yet
bursting with traditional oceanic flavors.
Availability of our Volga Reserve is limited as quantities are not readily available throughout the year.
