The Isle of Skye Sea Salt Company
Not open to the public.
Established in 2012, The Isle of Skye Sea Salt Company are the most northerly sun-dried sea-salt company. A small-scale, artisan business, they are happy to remain that way. Staying small means they can produce their sea salt in an environmentally friendly fashion, using low energy and low waste processes to turn water from Loch Snizort into pure salt crystals, which are then wrapped up in eco-friendly packaging. The loch has been awarded the highest possible water quality rating, and founders Nanette Muir and Chris Watts do not add any chemicals to their product. The only direct energy used in the evaporation process comes from the sun and wind. Launched in autumn 2013 in two grades - 'fine grain' and 'premium crystal', and in a range of pack sizes, it will become available throughout Scotland from spring 2014.
