The company ‘Esprit du Sel’ was created in 1994. Its primary commitment is to maintain and preserve the exceptional natural environment of Ile de Ré’s salt marshes.
Esprit du Sel gives cultural and economic recognition to products from the traditional salt marshes: Ile de Ré grey sea salt and fleur de sel.
The salt is harvested using a natural process of water circulation and evaporation in the salt marshes. The combination of wind and sun enables sea water to evaporate.
The sea salt is therefore only harvested in shallow areas where the water reaches a salt content of 260 grams per litre.
In addition to this unique process, Esprit du Sel has set itself ambitious targets by offering its customers a range of 100% organic spiced fleur de sel and sea salt items made from typical Ile de Ré products.
