Beluga x Siberian Caviar
The Huso huso x Acipenser baerii is a specially bred hybrid of Beluga and Siberian sturgeon species. The Beluga sturgeon, Huso huso, is a magnificent species, revered for its awe-inspiring size, elegant form, and remarkable lifespan. Its roe are highly prized for their large size, creamy texture, and buttery flavour.
Here, the magnificent Beluga has been cross-bred with the Siberian species Acipenser baerii - a faster producing sturgeon species. This hybrid has some of the prized attributes of the Beluga - large size and extraordinary flavour profile of Beluga, while sharing the characteristics of the Acipenser baerii - faster growing, and producing a caviar that is at once nutty, buttery, and slightly sweet, with a depth of flavour that lingers on the palate.
