Siberian Royal is a caviar extracted from the Siberian sturgeon. A medium-sized fish with a weight between 8 and 40 kg (17.6 to 88.2 lbs). Originally found in the fluvial basins of Siberia (from the Ob to the Kolyma rivers) and Lake Baikal. The best and largest roe (more than 2.7mm) are selected for this caviar. Quite versatile with a bold pure taste, it pairs well with potatoes, sour cream, crème fraiche, soft bread or in the purest Russian tradition, with blinis as well as by itself to fully appreciate its qualities. Suggested pairing: Brut champagne or dry white, mineral driven wines and vodka. The time required to harvest this caviar is 8 years.
