If you live for the flavors of the sea, you probably won’t like Shassetra™ caviar; you’ll absolutely love it! Colloquially known as a “caviar lover’s caviar”, this proud sturgeon will never apologize for its distinctive, bold burst of brine. That being said, those who have fallen under the spell of Shassetra™, revere this caviar for its lesser-known hints of dried fruit and toasted grains.
Our Tsar Imperial™ caviar grade brings a powerful “kiss of the sea” with a greater degree of subtlety than one might expect from such a potent caviar. Cradled within beryl and emerald grains, these medium-sized pearls seem innocent, but will release their full flavor when a dollop is pressed against the roof of the mouth.
