Salt, the Salt Marshes and the Guerande “White Gold”

In order to go from the salt marsh to the salt shaker, we sift, calibrate and select only the purest salts before packaging them.

Ancestral Methods of harvesting Sea salt and Fleur de Sel .

Whatever the type of salt, it’s essence is always the same:  both Mineral and organic. I’ts origins and birth within the clay of the salt marsh provides’ it with shades of bluishgrey, flat white when harvested and white as snow once dried. We are always lost for words, at the marvels the salt harvest brings when we extract the salt from the crystaliser (oeillet). The smell of flowers on the wind, fresh organic clay, seaweed and brine from the Ocean. The purity of the salt crystals, their delicacy which we enjoy carressing as we would running a hand through tall grass, are the prize of years of patience, practice, learning and precision transmitted over generations.

Like a bridge linking two banks, after the hand harvest in the salt marsh we move on to the worshop, where the salt will be carefully sifted and selected on a simple but effective production line that we improved over time, to perfect our  precious salt harvest in the best way.

This is all done to harvest and produce the famous Guérande Sea Salt , used in all the great french restaurants, as well as abroad .
