Kaluga is a hybrid beluga caviar otherwise known as the royal osetra caviar which is due to the large size of the pearls. The breed is a cross between the Huso dauricus and the Acipenser schrenckii. The shade of pearl can range throughout the season from a dark ebony to a golden hue. Raised in pristine settings, our Royal Osetra Caviar Malossol is one of the freshest and highest grades. Its pearls are firm and contain a smooth nutty flavor to be reckoned with. We pride ourselves on the ability to supply the finest imported caviar, notably our fresh Royal Osetra. Every tin is carefully chosen and packed by our specialist to meet the most demanding standards of fine caviar. The unopened shelf life of this caviar is 8 weeks. After opening this caviar should be consumed in four days. Due to temperature sensitivity, we specialty ship our caviar to hold the utmost quality.
