Why is Caviar a Delicacy?

Our caviar story starts in 1984 when Chef Jean-Louis Palladin asked Rod Browne Mitchell why doesn’t he offer caviar? Back then, wild sturgeon swelled the international market with fisheries thriving all over the world. As regulations started to restrict importation, Rod sought out the most reputable caviar farms. After visiting many, meeting their owners, and of course, tasting the pearls, he realized there is so much caviar knowledge that the average consumer might not know. Thereafter, Rod’s mission from his extensive sourcing became educating consumers on what exactly they put in their mouth and delivering the highest quality caviar.

For gourmands, few edible experiences resonate as special as caviar. This comes down to its years, sometimes decades of dedicated breeding and farming to harvest world-class caviar. We compare an exquisite caviar to a similar aging dedication to a fine bottle of wine or caviar’s fresh rarity to a seasonal truffle, picked and consumed at the perfect ripeness. Without a doubt, we consider every bite of caviar as a treat.

No matter the geographic residence or budget, caviar popularity continues to rise as a celebratory indulgence. After all, what better way to commemorate a special milestone than with a perfect tin that shines as brilliantly as the accomplishment? Just as smashed bubbly christens a boat, cigars accessorize graduates’ wardrobes, or professional milestones warrant a date at your favorite restaurant, caviar alludes the same joy.

In a post-pandemic era, there is no better time than the present to make special occasions, well, special.
