This flake salt offers the delicate texture of a fleur de sel-style finishing salt with the tantalizing aroma and complex flavor of alder wood smoke.
This salt is hand-harvested from the Gulf of Alaska (the waters around Sitka). This area is a rainforest and doesn’t get enough sun for sun-evaporation methods used elsewhere in the world. Instead the fresh sea water is heated to speed evaporation, concentrating it into a brine. It is then carefully processed using artisan methods to produce a mix of delicate, beautiful white flakes & pyramid-shaped crystals.
The salt is then alder smoked, giving it a light brown color, a delicate, complex smoke flavor and an absolutely delicious aroma.
