And as Christmas approaches, many are scrambling to find the perfect gift. Other than that, some are looking for the perfect item to bring for a potluck Christmas dinner. Well, Glitz has got the most incredible recommendation you will ever need. That’s right, we’re introducing you to locally made caviar from Tlur Caviar! Check out our review below and keep reading to find out more about Tlur Caviar.

What Is Caviar?

Caviar comes from the roe of the Acipenseridae family that has been salt-cured. Typically, Caviar is served as a spread or a garnish. It is also widely regarded as a delicacy. Caviar has traditionally been defined as sturgeon roe from the Caspian and Black Seas Beluga, Oscietra, and Sevruga caviars. Sturgeon roe may also be called caviar depending on where you live. And may also refer to roe from other species of sturgeon like salmon, steelhead, trout, lumpfish, whitefish, or carp.

Eating Caviar The Right Way

It’s common for people who have never had caviar to question, “are you supposed to chew caviar??”. Although it’s natural to presume yes, as we eat just about everything this way, it’s important to resist the impulse to chew when eating caviar. Instead, treat caviar like a fine wine and relish the flavour and texture by rolling the eggs around in your mouth. The flavour of caviar may be lost if it is chewed. Place a small quantity of caviar in your mouth before you consume it to get a whiff of the flavour. Champagne and vodka are excellent pairings for caviar because they help to cleanse the palate between samples.

Introducing Tlur Caviar

Tlur Caviar houses a local farm in Perak, and produces what we like to call ‘a local luxury’. There’s nothing better than local ingredients, and we’re glad to know that we can call caviar just that. Having tried many brands of caviar, we have to say that Tlur is definitely one that we will always go back to. Not only is it one of the freshest we’ve ever had, but also one that just seems to complement any dish we pair it with. 

This Christmas, we’re introducing you to Tlur Caviar’s festive gift box, featuring two of their finest caviars. In addition, we will be sharing some ways you can serve Tlur Caviar during your Christmas dinner!

D. SERIES V From Tlur Caviar

1. Oscietra Caviar

Russian Sturgeon, which can be found in rivers throughout Russia, as well as the Danube and the Caspian Sea, is used to make this product. It takes roughly 10 years for the Russian Sturgeon to reach maturity. Thus, this Oscietra Caviar is one that takes years of hard work. Upon trying, we noticed that the Oscietra Caviar had a slight tinge of saltiness. But when paired with chocolate, it becomes the perfect complement. If you’re planning to have this with bread and butter, we recommend using unsalted butter. 

Colour: Dark brown to light brown

Flavour: Smooth with a lingering buttery finish 

Packing: 30g tin 

2. Beluga Caviar

The Beluga Sturgeon is considered to be the largest species of the sturgeon family. It is also sought for its magnificently huge roe. This sturgeon is native to the Caspian Sea and Black Sea Basins is also bred on Tlur’s farm for roe harvesting. On average, it takes 10 to 15 years to raise a single fish to a marketable size. We absolutely loved this caviar as the creamy finish was magnificent. We enjoyed eating it on its own but found it equally as lovely on bread and tuna. 

Colour: Black, dark grey to light grey

Flavour: Slight briny with a distinct creamy finish

Packing: 30g tin
