The Caviar Classic selection of caviar comes from sturgeons farms.
These farms are lakes surrounded by forests and mountains. These are semi-wild farms, where the water is controlled and checked every day to ensure the best environment for sturgeons.
All the caviars from Caviar Classic follow the Malossol process. This is the highest quality method of preserving caviar. The caviar is lightly salted and pickled and put fresh in a tin. From the farm to your table, no more than 10 days will pass.
Originally, caviar comes from sturgeons living in the Caspian Sea.
In 1973, the CITES convention introduced quotas for fishing wild sturgeon. Unfortunately, in 2009, the species was still endangered and the production of caviar from wild sturgeon was thus banned.
Sturgeon is a very fragile fish which needs a pure environment with clear water, a specific salinity level and quality food. Pollution impacts its living environment as well as fishing. As a result, the species – in its natural habitat – is endangered.

Osetra is a prized caviar variety that is harvested from the Russian osetra sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii). Osetra is native to the Caspian Sea, the Black Sea, and the Sea of Azov, including their river basins. Since it is a critically endangered species, it is rarely found or caught wild, and caviar is mostly harvested from farmed varieties.
Kaluga is a caviar variety harvested from the eponymous river sturgeon, officially named Huso dauricus, which is native to the Amur River basin. Due to overfishing, kaluga is a critically endangered species, and the fish used for harvesting caviar is now mostly farm-raised.
Almas, which translates as diamond, is the most expensive caviar in the world. It is harvested from an albino beluga sturgeon (Huso huso), which should be between sixty and one hundred years old, and which is only found in the southern Caspian Sea—presumably because the area is less polluted.
