Sevruga caviar from Marky's is well-known and celebrated for its pronounced flavor, uniquely powerful among the caviar produced by the sturgeon family. Harvested from the Sevruga sturgeon, a trim fish found in the Caspian Sea, it delivers smooth and buttery flavor with a finish like a sweet ocean breeze.
Sevruga is one of the sturgeon family's most amply represented members in the world's supply of caviar. Next to the imposing proportions of its larger relatives, such as Osetra or Beluga, this fish is rather small, reaching up to 2 m in length and weighing up to 80 kg. The Sevruga sturgeon's slender form is emphasized by a long and narrow snout with five small, moustache-like barbels near the mouth. Sevruga is not so long-lived as Osetra, Beluga or Kaluga. Its shorter lifespan – up to 25 years – is in fact one of its advantages, as it is accompanied by a correspondingly short maturation period and increased rate of reproduction. In the wild, this fish lives in the basins of the Caspian, Azov, Black, and Aegean Seas and adjacent large rivers.
Due to its faster reproduction and wider geographic span, Sevruga is one of the best represented members of the sturgeon family, not only in aquaculture but also in its natural environment. It supplies more than half of all sturgeon caviar to pass through the international market. This abundance allows it to be by far the least costly among the great caviar-yielding sturgeons. Though it is less expensive than Beluga and Osetra, its relatives, Sevruga caviar delivers the same high quality, beautiful appearance, and delicate flavor expected from these elite species.
This sturgeon species produces small, delightfully crunchy roe with a marked buttery savor. The color of the beads varies from catch to catch and from fish to fish, ranging from light gray to greenish and yellow-gray.
Marky's Gourmet Store is proud to offer you just a few varieties of Sevruga caviar:
Marky's Sevruga Caviar is often called an "entry level" caviar for newcomers to this famous delicacy. Do not be misled by the small size of Sevruga caviar's grains; as is so often the case, some of the best things come in small packages. These small beads hold a flavorful, juicy secret, a taste stronger than that of all other caviars. This caviar has a distinct silky and buttery flavor ending on a sweet ocean note. The grains are deep gray in color, with a crunchy texture, easily separated from one another.
Classic Grey Sevruga Caviar is a favorite of those seeking the highest standard of quality without going to tremendous expense. It has a distinctive smooth and buttery flavor with a long, subtle aftertaste. The grains are small with a pearlescent gray envelope that conceals their succulent contents.
