About Blackthorn Salt
Made with wind, sea and thorns on the West Coast of Scotland, organically approved Blackthorn Sea Salt is the ultimate transformative ingredient for today’s kitchen. Mineral-rich, poignant and bittersweet, with a taste echoing sea, Blackthorn Salt enhances the flavours of any meal.
Blackthorn Salt has revived salt making in the area in an incredibly beautiful, sustainable and innovative way. Pure West Coast seawater is gathered and then evaporated on the world's only working Thorn Tower. The concentrated liquid is further reduced in the Pan House, where the Salters use their skill and patience to draw off beautiful mineral rich sea salt crystals. The result is a sustainable and natural salt which tastes of the sea, but also has a deeper mellow sweetness that elevates flavours on the plate.
Acclaimed by Scotland's National Chef as being by far the best salt he has ever used, Blackthorn is rightly proud of its methods and unique taste.
At Blackthorn, we understand that Salt is the single most transformative ingredient of all time. Clean and unrefined, the taste of our Salt is everything a discerning palate requires – sweet, with a mouth-watering tang. Used cleverly it can transform the mediocre, enhance a range of flavours or add a suggestion of rolling moreish-ness and sophistication to any meal.
The crucial crystal crunch factor is a given - we always encourage ‘by hand’ sprinkling if only to experience this satisfaction, but also to ensure the exact distribution and grain size that you desire on each occasion.
At Blackthorn, we use 100% west coast sea water and nothing else. There are no illusions: no adding, no seeding, no bleaching, just pure Scottish sea salt. When you taste Blackthorn Salt you taste nature – the sea, the winds and the thorns.
