This is to be considered an extremely rare caviar due to the low production volumes. The tin comes scattered with Swarvoski crystals that match the luxury and majesty of this product.
Known in some circles as 'Almas', this caviar is promoted based on its golden hue. However, our ethos has always been to be clear and transparent; so we simply call it 'Golden Caviar'.
Almas (which means Diamond in Arabic), was a marketing name used to promote the caviar from the Persian Sturgeon (Acipenser Persicus); a caviar with a diamond like appearance and golden hue.
However as time went on, these sturgeons stopped producing this type of caviar, leaving many brands trying to find and promote caviar's with a similar appearance (maybe even not a good tasting caviar for what one pays); such as the Acipenser Ruthenus, or so called Albino Beluga. All these attempts to try capitalise on the 'Almas' name, we feel have left a lot of confusion on what 'Almas' really is.
Our approach is different, in not branding this as Almas, but promoting it as 'Golden Caviar'.
Our 'Golden Caviar' is produced from a sturgeon species sometimes referred to as the Schrenkii Daricus; a hybrid sturgeon from the Acipenser Schrenkii and Huso Daricus. It is an excellent tasting caviar with hints of almond and macadamia.
From the caviar it produces, only a tiny amount comes out with this golden hue, thus its rarity.
This caviar is exclusively farmed in China, in the Thousand Island Lake (Qiandao Lake). This natural environment where the sturgeon are bred in pens, gives generous space to the sturgeon; allowing for more exercise and movement thus producing a high quality caviar with little fat.
