THE HISTORY OF CAVIAR
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 is gradually passing to his daughters Kiana and Ariana to continue the dynasty!
