It’s Drogheria Brittany Grey Sea Salt.
Now, Drogheria has these really great, heavy duty spice grinders with exotic salts, pepper, chili & even garlic. This gives you the utmost of freshness from these dried spices…
…There’s nothing like freshly ground sea salt or pepper. * Mmmmm *
This Brittany Grey Sea Salt is from the north-west of France. They harvest this salt and keep it unrefined. You can see just how natural it looks compared to iodized table salt we purchase in boxes at our grocery stores.
Just as the name of this salt suggests, it’s grey in color. It’s considered by some to be the best quality sea salt on the planet.

Just as the color is grey, it’s flavor falls into a mild & pleasant category in salt flavors. Some salts tend to be extremely “salty”, for lack of a better term, and some even tend to be sulfurous in nature, almost smelling faintly of pickled eggs. Hmmm…some are acquired tastes.
It’s fresh sea salty goodness is perfect for anything to accentuate it’s flavor. I especially like using this salt as a finishing salt, instead of using it to cook with from the jump because it can simply get lost with its mild nature in strong dishes you are cooking.
It goes well with green salads, eggs, fish, delicate side dishes, but with a few more salt grinds, you are on your way to saltier deliciousness.
This salt is of great quality, and is a good price at Qualifirst.com – I did not purchase this at my grocer. They don’t carry this product.
All of these characteristics make this Brittany Grey Sea Salt one that’s perfect for beginner foodies exploring the “new” world of salts!
