Royal Beluga Caviar, 000 Grade, Huso Huso
Beluga caviar is the king of caviar. Huso Huso sturgeon eggs are larger than most, typically 3mm in size, with a light grey or slightly silver appearance. This type of caviar is renowned for its excellent quality and incredible taste. The roe is one of the largest and softest of all the caviar varieties. Caviar connoisseurs consider beluga caviar to be the finest in the world thanks to its luxurious flavour and creamy, smooth texture.
Let the eggs pop on the roof of your mouth and allow all the salty, rich flavours to envelope your senses. The taste of this fine caviar is perfectly balanced and unique, offering a robust and briny hit rounded out by a soft, buttery mouthfeel. The finish is long and lasting, and the aftertaste is nutty and subtle. The flavour sensations are complex and intense.
Huso Huso undergo a lengthy maturation cycle, taking up to 25 years to reach full maturity hence their rarity and highly sought-after status. These sturgeons are one of the largest freshwater fish and can grow up to 25 metres in length, weighing in up to 2000lbs, and can live up to 100 years.
Beluga is so delicious it needs little else to be appreciated. Purists place a teaspoon of caviar on the back of the hand to taste, as it is a neutral surface. Using natural materials is best for serving caviar as it will not distort the flavour of the eggs. Mother of pearl is great canvas for caviar, or you can pick up one of our glass caviar serving sets if serving for a group of people.
While you can keep it simple and enjoy your caviar just as it is, it’s also great for canapés. Pair with simple ingredients that won’t overpower such as potatoes or eggs. Warm up some blinis and add a dollop of crème fraiche before placing a spoonful of caviar on top for a classic and elegant canapé option. It will also go very well with raw fish or tartare. Serve with a glass of bubbly champagne or ice-cold vodka.
