A sweet and fruity caviar
The eggs of Baïka® caviar are smaller and darker than the other caviars on offer. Generally speaking, it has a very pure flavour that's highlighted by a dominantly fruity taste.
The very delicate texture of the Baïka® Royal caviar is made up of small yet firm eggs that are dark brown in colour and that separate easily. On the palate, its pure flavour opens our taste buds up to a dominantly fruity taste, after which we can savour subtle mineral notes on a very discreetly briny structure.
In the Tsar Impérial® selection, Baïka® ranges from dark grey to black. The first impression in the mouth is very rich, and quickly gives way to dominantly woody notes and a harmony of fruit and seafood.
The Siberian sturgeon
The Acipenser baeri sturgeon originated in Siberia. In the 1980s, it was used as a reference for studying sturgeon farming.
Petrossian has featured this caviar in our catalogue since 1998. We have actively participated in its rise in popularity and in farming production quality especially in France, but in other countries as well.
Today, Baïka® caviar can hail from France, China, or Germany. However, the geographical location of the sturgeon farming does not affect the flavours of the caviar. It's actually the species of sturgeon that provides the eggs with their unique characteristics.
