Salts by Country

Salt Traders strives to bring you the best sea salts, peppercorns, sugar, and spices from around the world. We source and taste and sniff and crush and taste again premium quality gourmet, finishing, and artisan products for your experimentation and enjoyment.

Every location produces its own unique style of salt, pepper, sugar, and spice based on several factors. The ingredient itself has its own qualities, but the growing environment bestows its own special touches. Terroir is the word used to describe how soil and climate contribute to an ingredient grown in a specific place. Most often the word is used to describe characteristics in wine, such as the chalky soil and cool climate of the Champagne region in France. That combination (along with the grape variety grown) produces a perfectly crisp, slate-dry wine on the palate. Beyond wine, terroir enriches all food. We all know the flavor of olive oil yet in Italy alone the olive oils are quite different from one another. If you taste Tuscan (peppery), Sicilian (grassy), or Ligurian (buttery) side by side, they are astoundingly different. The olive variety must be factored into the finished product, but terroir plays a huge role. The same is true for sea salts, peppercorns, sugar, and spices.

While soil is the growing medium for peppercorns, sugar, and spice, sea water is the source of salt and believe it or not, it tastes vastly different around the world. Salt has its own terroir with the water source and the weather merging to form our favorite mineral. Add to that the harvesting style of each salt producer and you have a unique and fascinating collection of sea salts with diverse flavors and textures. Yes, NaCl is NaCl, but each spot on the globe assigns a special mark on its sea salt.

All of these factors come to play when we try new products. We look for the best flavors, textures, smells, and harvesting processes when we source.

Come travel and taste the world with us!
