The renowned Black River Caviar (oscietra) produced by Esturiones del Rio Negro S.A. at its beautiful sturgeon farm in rural Uruguay is classifed in 4 categories; Tradition, Royale, Imperial and Master Selection. At the forefront of this artesanal selection process is the Black River Caviar Master, who heads a team of caviar specialists who classify the caviar according to various characteristics including size, color, appearance (firmness, texture, sparkle) and, most importantly, the taste or flavor. To meet the exacting standards of the Black River Caviar Master, all caviar for export must have an exquisite flavor that can satisfy a diverse range of tastes with respect to saltiness. In the search for perfection, the physical appearance of the caviar is an essential determinant in separating the good from the very best to the truly exceptional.
