Portugal is a southern European country on the Iberian Peninsula, bordering Spain. Its location on the Atlantic Ocean has influenced many aspects of its culture and is home to some of the finest sea salt production in the world.
If you are in search of the perfect sea salt, you will find this beautiful, fluffy white salt to be a world away from common table salt. Hand-harvested in Ria Formosa and Sapal de Castro Marim from Portugal's coastal Atlantic waters, it has been said that there is indeed perfection in every pinch! While Portugal is known for many famous explorers, we thought it appropriate to name this beautiful sea salt after Ferdinand Magellan, the man who organized the 5 ship, 270 man expedition in search of a route to the East Indies, resulting in the discovery and naming of the Pacific Ocean AND the first journey to circumnavigate the Earth. His was a harrowing and momentous journey that opened the western world to the Far East and a plethora of spices and seasonings that we enjoy on our foods today.
We bring this special seasoning to you in handsome custom ceramic crocks made in Portugal and filled to be enjoyed in all of your cooking by the stove or at the table. We hope you will enjoy!
