The very vision of an ancient beast, like something lifted out of folklore, its home is the nutrient filled waters of the Caspian Sea, where we breed our sturgeons, on the beautiful shores of the Iranian coast, in order to produce the most heavenly and moreish caviar on earth. Iranian caviar has been, and remains so, the king of caviars in the eyes of the world's top chefs and connoisseurs alike.
Organically and sustainably bred, our superb caviar, which tips the boundaries of excellence, containing the classic taste, texture and aroma once enjoyed by the likes of Alexander the Great and Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, is the result of careful nurturing and preservation.

Iranian Caviar uses natural waters from the Caspian Sea. The sustainable and natural features of the pure Caspian Sea waters are the native habitat of sturgeon fish and thus an excellent ecosystem that ensures the quality of the most exquisite delicacy.
The sturgeon’s roe (eggs) deteriorate rapidly, thus it must be processed as promptly as possible. The eggs’ hardness, found only in freshly caught sturgeons, makes for the higher quality of caviar.
The sturgeons that produce caviar are critically endangered, and as a protected species, all production and distribution of caviar is controlled under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES).
Caviars such as Beluga, Sevruga and Osetra have been enjoyed for over 3,000 years, by the Ancient Greeks, Persians and many others.
The only true caviar, which contains an abundance of vitamins, minerals and other distinct qualities, comes from the Caspian Sea.
Iranian caviar is marked by its ancient and seductive qualities, with tastes and aromas that one simply cannot find anywhere else, it is quite accurately described as the stuff of dreams, the result of a marriage between the sublime Caspian Sea and the prehistoric sturgeon.
Like the origins of the Persian rug and the historic nation of Iran itself, the origins of Iranian caviar too are shrouded in mystery and have become entwined in the serpentine grasp of myth and legend. Today, Iranian caviar is the most desired, the harmonious blend of the finest gastronomic qualities.
Described by the likes of Mark Federman, owner of the legendary New York fish shop Russ and Daughters as “the best caviar experience today.” Iranian caviar, bred amongst the rich nutrients of the Caspian Sea, is hard to find, with so much aqua-farmed caviar, from the likes of the white sturgeon and crossbred sturgeons, where the unique aromatic nuances and vast nutritional values are lost.
However, you do not need to look too far, as all of our caviar, from the luxurious Beluga to the resplendent Osetra, is pure Iranian. At Caspian Monarque, we are one of few companies in the entire world to breed our sturgeons in farms using waters from the stunningly rich Caspian Sea.
Possessing the privilege of being in full control, from reproduction and breeding to roe selection, production and export, each critical stage is overlooked solely by us.
With sturgeons bred sustainably in their natural habitat, processed with a cherished Persian recipe and using the latest technology, you will not experience anything else like it
