Tsar Nicoulai produces top-quality, sustainably raised caviar at its aquafarm in California’s Central Valley. Unlike other producers, they do not mix eggs from different fish; each jar contains eggs from a single sturgeon, packed at the time of order, and preserved only with salt. This gift set of black caviars showcases their best offerings, served at some of the country's finest restaurants. It’s a fun and festive way to savor the diversity of tastes and textures offered by different types of caviar. Serve on bite-size blini (8 oz. mix is included), top with dollop of tangy crème fraîche and pair with a crisp sparkling wine to enjoy a mouthful of luxury in every bite.
Select Caviar features medium-bead caviar with marbled green/platinum color, medium firmness with a good pop, and a mild, nutty flavor.
Estate Caviar has a medium-size bead with lustrous brown-black color, slightly softer texture, a fresh flavor and smooth, buttery finish.
Paddlefish Caviar’s smaller eggs have a charcoal grey hue with hints of green, and a strong, grassy flavor.
Blini mix makes it simple to whip up dollar-size buckwheat pancakes to accompany your tastes of caviar.
