Beluga caviar IKRiNKA

Beluga caviar takes its name from the beluga sturgeon from which it comes. This fish species bears the latin name huso huso. The beluga sturgeon doesn't give caviar until it is about 14 years old and 185 to 250 centimetres long. The fish can grow to a maximum length of five to six metres and weigh up to one ton. This makes the beluga sturgeon the largest sturgeon species. Accordingly, beluga caviar is also the largest of sturgeon caviar, with a diameter of up to 3.5 millimetres.

Beluga sturgeon can still be found in the wild in the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and, more rarely, in the Adriatic Sea. Since the overall stocks are low, beluga caviar today comes exclusively from aquaculture facilities around the world. Thus, beluga sturgeons enjoy optimal living conditions and sustainability is guaranteed. Of course, this has a positive effect on the quality of the beluga roe.

Beluga caviar: the most desired delicacy in a world

Beluga sturgeon caviar is highly prized. It is one of the most popular and at the same time the most expensive type of caviar: one kilogram can cost up to 10,000 euros. On the one hand, the long time that the beluga sturgeons need to breed is responsible for the high price. On the other hand, as a special delicacy, it is very scarce and therefore in high demand. You can recognise real beluga caviar by its typical grey colouring with nuances from light grey to anthracite.

It is not only the size of the beluga caviar that makes this fish special. The wafer-thin and very delicate skin and the particularly aromatic taste are simply unique. And the beluga roe? This tastes mild and fine and creamy at the same time. Once you have tasted it, you won't want to miss it again.

Beluga caviar goes best with champagne, white wine or vodka. You can buy the caviar online at IKRiNKA in tins or jars of 50g, 100g and 500g. These can be kept unopened for several months. Once opened, however, you should consume the beluga caviar within a few days.
