We have been fans of Halen Mon for years.
Sea salt was made on the island of Anglesey up until the late eighteenth century when it was halted after makers were fined for adulterating the sea brine with Cheshire rock salt.
Today, husband and wife team, Alison and David, have resurrected this age-old craft by combining traditional hand harvesting with brand new technology to produce crunchy white flakes of Halen Mon. Unlike their predecessors, however, they don’t add anything.
Halen Mon’s process is unique and has been legally recognised as such under EU law as a PDO - Protected Designation of Origin product.
Every pack of sea salt is marked with the harvest date and the sea salt makers initials, so you know that your sea salt was packed by a real person and not some robotic arm in a factory.
