The Espelette chilli pepper used to flavour this pink salt by Albert Ménès is an exceptional chilli pepper that meets the quality requirements defined its Protected Designation of Origin specifications. Grown in the heart of the Basque Country, each pepper is chosen and picked by hand. They are then dried in the sun for around two weeks before being slowly cooked in the oven to preserve all their flavours. The rare pureness and crunchiness of the Himalayan salt allows the mild spiciness and fruity flavour of the Espelette pepper to fully develop when ground. The dryness of the salt preserves the flavours of the chilli pepper without losing any of its taste.
