Founded in 2013, Achill Island Sea Salt is a family business, which was inspired by the long-forgotten tradition of salt production on Achill Island. In the time-honoured style, we began producing sea salt in our family kitchen. Due to ever growing demand we moved to a custom modified facility in Bunacurry, Achill Island in September 2016. This move allowed us to increase production and transform from a local small business to a nationally recognised award winning brand.
Through a combination of sustainable traditional and modern techniques we create a great tasting, pure and natural Irish Sea Salt, which is organically hand harvested in small batches using a slow evaporation process. The characteristics of Achill Island Sea Salt are directly linked to the high mineral content of the grade A wild Atlantic waters that surround Achill Island creating distinctive tasting and textured sea salt flakes
From humble beginnings in the family kitchen, we have seen our sea salt garner worldwide favour by professional chefs, home cooks and food lovers who appreciate the taste and quality of hand harvested sea salt and that extra dimension it can bring to cooking.
