SEA SALT FROM GRADE A WATER, THE LIZARD, CORNWALL, UK.
Cornish Sea Salt is hand harvested from the very clearest Grade A waters here in Cornwall, just eight meters from the sea. They don't add anything to it or take anything away, it is completely pure and natural which means it retains natural minerals that are essential to the body's well being, and it is lower in sodium.
The original founder, Tony Fraser, came across an Iron Age salt works in a remote cove on the south coast of Cornwall while out walking. Most people would have made a mental note and carried on with their lives. But Tony wanted answers: why had such an essential element of the county’s farming and pilchard industry died out? Because rock salt had become an easier way of harvesting the mineral.
The idea affected him so profoundly that he was determined to re-imagine the sea salt industry for the 21st century.
This is one of the very few sea salt industries harvesting from open waters, more specifically the protected waters of the Atlantic lapping at the shores of The Lizard, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Beneath the beauty is a totally unique geographical environment, which defines the taste and high mineral content of their sea salt. Serpentine, once so sought after in the Victorian era, and gabbro, are both rich in magnesium and calcium, two of the key minerals in their sea salt and essential to life on earth.
