Tradition Prestige is a Caviar extracted from the White Sturgeon, a native species of the Pacific Ocean found in the North American West coast, from Alaska to Southern California. It is one of the longest-living sturgeons, they may grow to 800kg or 1760 Lbs and can be as long as 6m or 19.
Tradition Prestige has large eggs that are silky and have elegant notes. Creamy, buttery flavours arrive first as hints of seaweed yield to a long, impressive clean finish. The taste of this caviar is perfectly balanced, combining delicate nuances of the sea with light, buttery flavours of pastry.
High in protein, this lean fish is particularly refined and so is its exquisite large roe ranging from 2.8 to 3.0 millimetres in diameter and varying between dark grey to black in colour.
The time required to harvest this caviar is approximately 14 to 15 years.
