Blackthorn Salt has brought back salt making to the Ayrshire coast in an incredibly beautiful, sustainable and innovative way. The world’s only working Thorn Tower. Reminiscent of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale, or even the Game of Thrones, our imposing tower of thorns faces the sea and the mountains of Arran. This spiky structure is incredibly effective as well as being visually impressive: by using the coastal winds and sun, it substantially evaporates seawater for making sea salt. Next to the tower, lies our Pan House, where Salters Gregorie and Malky use their skill and patience to draw off the stunning, mineral-rich sea salt crystals. Blackthorn is a sustainable and natural salt which tastes of the sea, but also has a deeper mellow sweetness that elevates and prolongs flavours. Acclaimed by the Scotland’s National Chef as being by far the best salt he has ever used, the team at Blackthorn is incredibly proud of its unique method and taste.
