For decades San Francisco’s own Tsar Nicoulai has been supplying the finest restaurants and retailers with their award winning farm raised California Estate Osetra Caviar. Tsar Nicoulai were the first to develop California farm raised Caviar, and continue to produce and import the world’s finest Caviar.
Traditionally, Caviar was produced in Russia, Iran, and Romania along the Caspian and Black Seas. Overfishing, heavily polluted waters, and brazen illegal poaching there have resulted in lowering the quality of imported Caviar while drastically increasing the costs.
Contrastly, California farm raised Caviar is produced locally in the Sierra mountain range of Northern California under strict guidelines and attention to detail. The resulting Caviar is superior in its clean fresh flavor, affordability, and sustainability.
Here’s a brief description of Tsar Nicoulai Caviar we have in stock for you this New Year’s Eve:
