A delicious caviar with eggs that range from glittering black to golden Osetra, beloved for its rich, buttery flavor with wonderful nutty notes, Osetra is one of the most luxurious sturgeon caviars in the world.
Considered by many the golden child of the sturgeon family, Osetra caviar is by far the most popular and sought-after varieties of Caspian caviar. Typically, its size and price are somewhere between Beluga and Sevruga. Its colors range from being as dark as black to as light as gold. Osetra sturgeon has a buttery flavor that many consider to be the most enjoyable. Osetra caviar can vary greatly in size, color, flavor, and price.
Where does Osetra caviar come from
Origianlly, Ossetra caviar came from the sturgeon Acipenser gueldenstaedtii fished in the Caspian Seas – a sea that borders Russia, Iran, Azerbaijan, and other countries. Today, most of the caviar sourced by Gourmet Food Store comes from farmed sturgeon raised in aquafarms in Israel, Italy, and even the United States. Farmed caviar is much more sustainable, since wild-caught caviar has led to the dramatic decline of the Ossetra sturgeon.
Price of Osetra Caviar
Osetra is one of the most expensive caviars in the world – second only to the famed Beluga caviar. You’ll find different types of Ossetra caviar available, which will vary in price. Typically, the golden Osetra price is the most expensive, since it comes from older fish which produce a firmer, richer flavor that caviar connoisseurs appreciate. Russian Osetra caviar price was once considered the most expensive, but today the same quality – and pricing – can be found in other countries.
