Imperial Gold Osetra Caviar
The striking gold color of this osetra caviar alone makes it an exclusive selection, however, its large pearls and firm texture make equally as palatable on your tongue as it is on your eyes. Each pearl individually melts in your mouth with a nutty flavor and smooth finish.
Historically, if a Russian osetra caught in the Caspian Sea exhibited golden pearls, its roe was immediately ear-marked for the Tsar himself.

Important 12 Gram Information
We are currently rolling out a 12 gram option for some of our caviars. The 12 gram size is perfect for sampling. Due to caviar pearl's delicate texture, these small sample sized tins might reflect a softer pearl than in our larger sizes.
Additionally, the small tin requires a thinner tool than your typical caviar key. We recommend a coin or butter knife. For those looking for an easier experience, we recommend 30 grams (1 ounce) or larger.
Caviar Grading Process
All the caviar offered by Browne Trading is graded by our Caviar Master, Richard Hall. Grading refers to the evaluation of the caviar’s tone (color), texture (firmness), and taste.
