Caviar History

Caspian Sea - home of the majestic Caspian Sea sturgeon is the largest land-locked body of water in the world. The salinity of the water is approximately a quarter of that present in other Oceans. It is over five million years old and is said that, when Alexander the Great, during his invasion of the Persian Empire reached its southern shores, believed he had reached the end of the world. 

Caspian Sea is home to 75 species of wildlife endemic to its waters and nowhere else. Caspian Sea Caviar was always recognised as being the finest Caviar in the world, whether it was Iranian Caviar or Russian Caviar.

Sturgeon fishing in Iran was never an industry, but more a skill set drawing on generations of know how, expertise passed from one to the next. Ramin of Imperial Caviar was bestowed this honour by his uncle Davood , an inspirational tutor of Caviar who in turn was entrusted by this knowledge from Ramin’s grandfather Hossein. The mantle will eventually pass to nephew Armon to continue the dynasty!

Caviar Production

The Caviar processing plant would extract the roe from the Sturgeon and process it to some of the finest Caviar in the capable hands of the Iranian Caviar masters; with too much salt the fragile balance between salt and roe would be spoiled; not enough salt and the Caviar would mature too early, and it would be sold on the market as Cheap Caviar. Farmed Caviar is now available from the shores of the Caspian Sea and Imperial Caviar is one of the first companies to offer this Fine Caviar. Consumers are be able to buy Caviar Online from Imperial Caviar and select this sustainable Beluga Caviar. 

An average of 25% of the female Sturgeon’s weight is Caviar. Every type of Caviar has its own unique taste, aroma and very importantly aftertaste. All the Caviar selected by Imperial Caviar arrive in the original large size tins that have to be re-packed at our plant into smaller marketable size tins.

Traditionally, Russian Caviar was well known for its long established position, which was later surpassed in the connoisseur’s choice by Fine Iranian Caviar during the 1980’s.  

The European consumer price for Russian Caviar had always been higher than Iranian Caviar, until fine Iranian Caviar was recognised by the Caviar connoisseur to be the ultimate caviar.
