This salt is better than Maldon, and dangerously close to grey Guérande. It is extraordinarily natural and artisanal. What we like most are the flakes, voluminous (they crumble down to smaller sizes if you prefer), irregular, fragile and “inconsistent”. They break apart in the mouth and satiate the palate with marine salinity and oceanic flavor, demonstrating unmistakable nobility. They illustrate without overwhelming. They enrich.

There are two versions: natural and smoked with Welsh oak shavings. The latter is utterly unique. The wood fragrances in no way prevail on the palate, but produce rather a charming rustic, authentic character. The tonality comes from the smoking derivatives.

A third version is impregnated with spices.
