Salt Traders is proud to be the exclusive United States importer of Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt. Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt is made in a style devised by the Vikings, thanks to the efforts of one man in Denmark, who took it upon himself to rekindle this millennium-old tradition. Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt is produced by first evaporating seawater, then using a "fizzing" (evaporating) process, which takes place in a vessel over an open, smoky fire containing juniper, cherry, elm, beech and oak. "The resulting salt," according to the April 2002 issue of SAVEUR Magazine, "tastes like a bonfire."

I bought a couple of 3 oz jars of this a few years ago and still have some left but will need to restock soon. Mine still have the old label, not sure when that got changed. I use it in different ways but my favorite is to just dip my finger to scoop up a few grains to lick straight. Salt heaven.

You have no idea what a few grains of the Viking Smoked Salt will do for scrambled eggs, cooked vegetables and meat. This is my all time favorite finishing salt.

Danish Viking Smoked Salt is a true and flavorful smoked salt. Very fresh and intense, this salt wakes up deep hidden feelings as it brings back memories of being outside with a roaring campfire. My customers tell me they have never smelled or tasted such a fresh, intense smoked flavor. A MARVELOUS SALT!!!!

Nothink like it. VERY smoky. Compared with this, Maldon Smoked is barely tastable. A few grains is enough, which makes it worth the rather high price.
I got a pound, which lasted several years. When I re-ordered, the new bottle was much livelier. Get it in the 1.5 oz. jar, or at most the 3.5 jar.
