Please note: As each sturgeon is unique, so is the caviar they produce. As such, it is normal to experience variations in color within each grade. With regards to coloring, caviar pictured here is a good representation but is not necessarily indicative of all caviar within this grade.

Our Farms

At Sterling, we take great care and pride in using traditional methods of producing caviar in an artful manner, producing each tin by hand and taking a deft approach to all we do. Our production is in the traditional malossol method, which means “little salt” and that is all we use – no chemicals, no preservatives, just roe and salt, as has been made for centuries. This enhances the true flavors of the caviar and brings the subtle nuances of each taste to the forefront of the palate.

Our work starts long before caviar production though, and our commitment to excellence and sustainability is a principle we are passionate about. Our quality assurance programs are overseen and held in strict compliance with Federal and State food safety laws and we are certified by the U.S. Department of Commerce Seafood Inspection Program. We are thankful for the environment in which our farms exist and have thus developed partnerships to help create wetlands for endangered species and to protect the areas where we work and play every day. Sterling continues to look to the future for ways we can continually improve in all facets of our business to be good stewards of the land, good neighbors, partners and citizens, all in such a way that we continue to provide the world with the taste of luxury – from our farm to your palate!

What does your caviar taste like?

Sterling White Sturgeon caviar is best known for its buttery creaminess, light nutty flavor, and hints of crisp seawater.

What is the best way to store my caviar?

Caviar is extremely delicate and, as such, is highly perishable. Caviar should be stored in the coldest part of your refrigerator (32° F-35° F / 0° C-1.67° C). Depending on the style of your refrigerator, this is typically in the back and may be on the top or bottom shelf but never in the door. Pro tip: Look for the vent – the spot where the coldest air is being forced into your refrigerator. Never freeze your caviar.

How do I open my tin of caviar?

Grasp tin opener on the larger, oval side between thumb and index finger. Insert smaller, non-oval side of tin opener into space where lid and bottom of the tin meet. Pressing the opener against the tin and moving along the diameter, twist opener back and forth to separate the lid from the bottom of the tin until you hear a “pop.” Lift the lid and enjoy!

How long will my caviar last?

Caviar is extremely delicate and, as such, is best consumed within 24 hours and up to 48 hours of opening. Unopened and properly refrigerated, your caviar will last up to 4 weeks.

Can you trace your white sturgeon fish and caviar?

Sterling Caviar stands behind all our products with full traceability, from the farm to your table. Sterling aquaculture and processing meet the standards for legal international trade in caviar and sturgeon products. We hold a current import / export permit and adhere to the requirements of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species in all our export transactions.

How is your product produced and processed?

Our facility is an establishment approved by the USDC Seafood Inspection Program. us know within 24 hours and we will arrange to pick up and replace your order. Your happiness is our top priority.

Does your caviar contain hormones, artificial additives, or artificial preservatives?

Shipping

Caviar is extremely delicate and, as such, is highly perishable. At Sterling Caviar, we take the utmost care to guarantee that your caviar arrives in pristine condition. Your caviar is fresh-packed at our farm and shipped chilled, arriving at your doorstep within 24 hours*. So that you may receive maximum enjoyment from our caviar, please consider the following guidelines:

  • For optimal results, place extra ice packs in the freezer and store your caviar with firm packs on top of the caviar in the coldest part of your refrigerator (32° F-35° F / 0° C-1.67° C). Depending on the style of your refrigerator, this is typically in the back and may be on the top or bottom shelf. Pro tip: Look for the vent – the spot where the coldest air is being forced into your refrigerator. Never freeze your Sterling Caviar.
  • Change out the ice packs so firm packs on used continuously while in the refrigerator.
  • Open your tin when serving with a caviar key or a quarter or round edged small butter knife, simply turn the key after inserting into the lid of the tin and pop open.
  • Caviar is like wine, once the tin is exposed to air, it is best enjoyed within 2 days of opening it. It is optimum to enjoy it in one sitting.
  • To serve your caviar, you may use the tin it is in, and place it over a bowl of ice, much like oysters, caviar needs to remain cold.

*Please note: Due to the perishable nature of caviar and our commitment to providing you with a product of exceptional taste, texture, and freshness, We do not package your caviar until the day that it ships. To maintain your caviar’s optimal state, it must be shipped overnight. Shipping rates vary via Fedex dependent on your geographical region and zipcode.

Following all instructions above our caviar has a 4 week shelf life to ensure the best experience.

Melt-in-your mouth exquisiteness!

I’m not a caviar aficionado by any means. But was so excited to hear about caviar from the USA. Ordered some supreme and am blown away. Thank goodness I’m not rich (or well maybe not) or i would eat this every chance I could! Lovely packaging, prompt delivery. Very satisfied.

A Most Amazing Treat!

It was excellent. Great customer service and the caviar is always top-notch. My only suggestion is to include instructions or a tool for opening the tin. I finally got it open with a screwdriver!

New Years tradition

Every year we ring in the New Year with caviar and champagne. We have been getting Sterling caviar ever since the ban on Beluga caviar was put in place. We are always happy with the experience.

Fabulous

I paired this with a vintage French champagne and was shocked. It was so good. For the first time I ate it directly from the tin with a few drops of lemon juice. It has firm eggs that give you that pop and it has that creamy ocean taste. Just enough salt. Highly recommended. I love osetra for the holidays but this was exceptional.

Sensational Product!

First introduced to Sterling while dining in Yountville, CA in 2016, and I've never looked back. Thrilled to have finally discovered a stellar domestic caviar. Product is of unwavering, highest quality. Really impressive.
