You may find Osetra spelled in different ways, this is truly a connosieurs caviar. It has deep rich, velvety notes as well as an almost walnut note to it. Like other caviar types, it varies in color as each fish is different. It can be grey, black, brown or golden. The origin of the sturgeon was from the Caspian which is how the brood stock was developed in other areas of the world. True Osetra caviar, with its creamy texture and nutty flavor, is one of the finest sturgeon roes in the world. The Russian Sturgeon, was known as originating from the Caspian Sea, Black Sea and Azov River basins, while consumed since BC times and now being highly regulated, caviar exponentially expanded to global market farming, so this and other sturgeon types are bred in different parts of the world.
