Caviar Storage Guide

How to store and care for your caviar order

Upon receiving your caviar, promptly place the jar or tin directly into your refrigerator. The coldest section of your fridge is recommended. Aim for an optimal temperature range of 28-30 F for storing caviar. 

It is important to avoid freezing caviar as it can negatively alter the texture and taste of the eggs. 

Caviar opened vs unopened

When your caviar is delivered, it will come vacuum-sealed. During storage, it is recommended to place the sealed caviar in the coldest section of your refrigerator for a period of up to 6 weeks. 

Once you pop open your jar or tin of caviar, remember to finish it within a span of 3 days. After opening, ensure that the lid is tightly closed, wrap the container in plastic, and store it in the refrigerator. 


Hackleback (a.k.a. shovelnose) is North America's last wild-caught sturgeon caviar. Being the world's smallest sturgeon, Hackleback produces small caviar that is almost jet-black in color. It makes up for its smaller size with a very pleasing, firm texture and clean, mild flavor.

Our Hackleback Caviar is available to buy online for overnight delivery to your door. 

Hackleback Caviar is best served with blinis and a dollop of crème fraiche. A popular choice is to top Maine oysters with a small amount of Hackleback, creating a delightful combination of flavors. 

If you're new to caviar, Hackleback would be an excellent option. When compared to other sturgeon caviar options, Hackleback is surprisingly affordable. This caviar won't break your budget, but it still provides a high-quality and authentic caviar experience.
