Droitwich Salt is sourced from one of the oldest and purest brine springs in the world.
It was historically, and justly, celebrated for its great purity and today this PURE and NATURAL FLAVOUR still comes through.
The salt is harvested by hand at Churchfields Saltworks where the gentle process of crystallising the natural brine to pure salt is done using renewable energy.
Churchfields Saltworks is situated at Churchfields Farm within the Salwarpe Valley on the edge of Droitwich Spa in The Heart of England.
"Pure and natural flavour still comes through"
These Brine Springs have naturally existed beneath Droitwich Spa for millions of years.
It was an internationally valuable resource in Roman, Anglo Saxon and Norman Times and King John granted the town a Royal Charter in 1215 based on the importance of its brine.
Droitwich Spa was subsequently one of the most prosperous towns in Medieval Times right through to the 20th Century. In the mid 19th Century Droitwich Salt won international recognition and was awarded a ‘Premier Class No 41’ designation.
Today, we are once again using this unique resource to make the purest, natural brine spring salt in the world.
“Having both grown up in Droitwich, we are immensely proud to be part of a product revival with such local and international importance. While we are a family farming business located in the Heart of England our vision is to become a major player in the wider UK gourmet salt market and firmly position Droitwich Salt as a delicious natural alternative”
