Achill Island Sea Salt follows a longstanding tradition from the island in which it originates. In recent years Kieran O'Malley, his wife Marjorie, son Seán and daughter Meabh, have re-rejuvenated the practice by producing sea salt in the traditional manner from the pure water of the Atlantic Ocean. Water from the sea is brought up from the ocean, similar to in previous generations, replacing the buckets for tanks that can hold 2000 litres. It is then turned into brine and crystallized, dried and turned into the flaky, Achill Island Sea Salt that is so loved by chefs and consumers alike.
An intense salty flavour of the sea is what you taste when you use Achill Island Sea Salt. The complex mineral character comes from minerals naturally occurring in the Atlantic Ocean around Achill, and the spring water flowing from the mountains on the island into the sea. The flaky consistency of Achill Island Sea Salt makes it a perfect table salt for sprinkling on food and great for cooking. This is a natural full flavoured salt, so you don’t need a lot to enhance a dish...
