Every good product comes from a good story. Sal del Mar does one better by further performing good for others. The company harvests salt the ancestral way in the pristine Sea of Cortez. The ocean is allowed to flood Sal del Mar's controlled salt ponds, which is then trapped by a dam. Dried by the sun, the water evaporates naturally, leaving a layer of sea salt to be harvested by hand. The result is gourmet sea salt with a rustic taste that is perfect for everyday cooking as well as for crusting the rim of a margarita glass.
But that's only half the story. Sal del Mar is then packaged in a natural cotton bag, hand-embroidered by women in a remote village of Sierra Madre, Occidental Mexico. The Sabinito women are paid a fair wage while supporting a sustainable enterprise. And so when all of the salt is used up, you'll be left with a handmade keepsake that will last forever.
