The famed caviar merchant Petrossian has presented the world’s largest caviar tin. Called “Ivan the Terrible,” the tin contains 10kg of Petrossian’s Tzar Imperial caviar, worth around €100,000 ($136,000). Behind this giant box is second generation Petrossian owner Armen Petrossian. ‘This exceptional box will interest anyone who wants to host a beautiful reception, to do something impressive, something worthy of the Arabian nights. So, it’s a bit of a fairy tale, we’re telling a story. But at the same time, we wanted something that did not exist until now, something that would be truly non-standard in this box. So, that’s the idea, and I already have reservations, a sale for a client in the Middle East, and we’ll deliver the box to him next week, by private jet,’ Petrossian said.
Beside “Ivan the Terrible”, the French company released two other smaller tins: “Catherine the Great” which contains 5kg of the delicacy, while the one named after Alexander contains 2.5kg.
Each piece in this limited edition will be hand packed, and each label hand lithographed and numbered. Each tin is prepared upon order, and prices are available on request.
