Pointy Snout caviar comes from two different species of sturgeon. Our Caviar Avancé and Caviar de Table are both from White Sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus), native to the Pacific Northwest. Our Caviar Avant-Garde, in both premium and imperial grades, and our Caviar Ossetra Nouveau, are from Russian Sturgeon (Acipenser gueldenstaedtii), the only species that produces genuine Ossetra with its grand, robust flavor.
We offer Pointy Snout caviar in different “styles” from each species—the difference created by degrees of maturity. Our Caviar Avancé, Caviar De Table, and Caviar Avant-Garde are fully-aged for at least 90 days, while our Caviar Ossetra Nouveau, a seasonal offering, is non-aged, freshly-produced. (For an analogy, think of the evolving enjoyment of drinking a finely matured, complex Bordeaux versus the quick, uncomplicated satisfaction of drinking Beaujolais Nouveau.) Whether matured or fresh, each style carries its own unique hit of pleasure to fit the mood or occasion.
