Our story

Back in 2016, we were inspired to produce high quality natural sea salt without using gas or electricity. We began experimenting with sea water evaporation using only the sun and the wind. By autumn 2017, we had perfected our unique process of solar evaporated salt. Sun dried sea salt if you like. Since then, our story has continued to be one of environmental sustainability and innovation.

Porth Selau, Carn Llidi and Whitesands Bay

Our source is the famously pure waters of Whitesands bay. We collect the sea water, filter it and allow it to evaporate in our bespoke Tŷ Halen.

After two weeks the process is complete and our sea salt crystals are harvested, by hand.

We’re committed to keeping our natural sea salt pure and unrefined; ensuring that the minerals naturally present in sea water are preserved in our finished product.
