About Sal de Ibiza
Sal de Ibiza is a line of superb table salt products, all made of 100% sea-salt of the highest possible quality. SAL de IBIZA is harvested exclusively in the nature reserve “Parc natural de ses Salines d’Eivissa”, in Spain. It contains no additives or preservatives, nor does it undergo any form of refinement other than slow drying under the sun and gentle grinding in ancient stone mills, enabling Sal de Ibiza to retain more than 80 vital minerals and trace-elements. We simply add nothing nor take anything away because a pure and healthy sea-salt requires nothing but sun, sea, and an ocean breeze!
The first official reference to Ibiza’s salt-works originates from the time of Punic rule, which began in 540 BC when the Carthaginians conquered the island. Under the influence of the Roman Empire, the saltworks were run from 122 BC until the empire fell in 476 AD. After that, the island of Ibiza was descended upon by the Vandals and Byzantines. For almost half a millennium the island constantly suffered from changing occupation until it was ultimately conquered by the Moors in 902 AD. These took over the existing facilities and salt-production techniques, most of which were left as a legacy from Punic times.
After the Spanish won back the island during the “Reconquista” in 1235, important technical advances were made at the salt-works, which not only improved the quality of the salt and raised the yield but also promoted its commercialization.
Sal de Ibiza continues this tradition and ensures that future generations appreciate this treasure as much as all of those in its long history!
