Pearl Street sources all of our caviars from farms (wild sturgeon is ILLEGAL in the USA as of 2007). We work exclusively with farms located on natural waterways with high water flow. This means the fish are exposed to the minerals and vitamins that sturgeon find in the wild. Rivers in high-elevation forests feed the lakes. We only harvest in cold-water months to maintain structure (firmness/pop) and flavor. Once the product is received directly from the farm, our team of three caviar specialists nurture, turn, and age the caviar to have the optimal flavor, maturity, and presentation for our partners. We then pack the tins and send them as desired when an order is received. Our caviar is just the eggs and a little bit of salt (salt from the Alps). That’s it.
