CЯU Kaluga Caviar
Huso Dauricus x Acipenser schrenkii
Kaluga caviar comes from the "River Beluga" (huso dauricus).
To protect and replenish the almost wiped out wild populations, it is illegal to import to the US unless it's a hybrid species. Our Kaluga hybrid is crossed with the popular Japanese or Amur Sturgeon (Acipenser schrenkii), making for the closest matching hybrid to true Kaluga you can buy.
Both Kaluga and Shasseta are native to the Amur river basin of China and Russia.
Flavor: Mild and Buttery
Common Color: Dark amber with flecks of jade
Species: Huso Dauricus x Acipenser Shrenckii
Common Name(s): Kaluga Huso Hybrid or River Beluga
Shelf Life: Three weeks refrigerated, unopened.
The Kaluga Sturgeon hails from Asia, so practically all of the Kaluga caviar you receive in the world originates from a small handful of farms in the mountains of northern, non-industrialized China (most companies sell Kaluga and don't tell you it's Chinese). The species is native to the waters between China and Russia.
We choose the best from all producers available and visit our farms to ensure quality so expect the source to stay consistent with this caviar.
A very consistent crowd-pleaser.
