Droitwich Salt is sourced from one of the oldest and purest brine springs in the world. These brine springs have naturally existed beneath Droitwich Spa for millions of years. Today, we are once again using this unique resource to make one of the purest, natural brine spring salts 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.”
– Will & Gillian Kerton
The History of Droitwich Salt
The salt made in Droitwich 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 as stated on the historic label was awarded a ‘Premier Class No 41’ designation. Today, 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.
