ONE SCOOP IS ALL IT TAKES, Sterling Royal grade white sturgeon caviar, also known as “Black Gold,” is identified by its medium to large, semi-firm to firm eggs. Unique coloring ranges from onyx to light or dark brown. A creamy mouthfeel is preceded by a rich, full and buttery flavor with aromas of mildly sweet, salty sea air. Due to its consistent taste and texture, this is an all-time favorite of newbies and connoisseurs alike.
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.
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!
