Oriel Sea Salt
Oriel Sea Salt is a pure, natural sea salt harvested from deep sea water in Port Oriel, Clogherhead by John Delany and Brian Fitzpatrick. The proprietary process used delivers a fine grain sea salt, with an incredible kick of flavour and an intensity that delivers a taste profile with massive depth. It’s the only Sea Salt of its kind, a totally pure fine grain sea salt high in minerals with a fresh and intense taste of the sea. Recognised by the EU Commission as PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), with an Organic harvesting process and Origin Green sustainability, their sea salts include a Natural, Kiln Dried, Teeling Whiskey Smoked and Guinness Smoked.
John Delany is an adventurous man. Always with an eye to producing quality, he loves good natural food. Working with marketing and technological expert Brian Fitzpatrick, the pair have pioneered an Irish Sea Salt which is receiving acclaim from cooks, chefs and food producers from Ireland to the Californian coast. Their mission is to help chefs realise what a difference a great sea salt can make to their food, when used as the ingredient to replace table salt and given the same respect as other fine ingredients.
Oriel offer three different Sea Salts. The first is their Natural, a fine grain, slightly moist that looks like freshly fallen snow. They then take this and put it through their custom built Kiln to create a Free Flowing, pure sea salt without any additives or anti caking agents. Finally they also create some smoked varieties such as Teeling Whiskey, Guinness and Roe & Co Whiskey Smoked.
In culinary terms Oriel has great qualities, the intense taste profile means you can get away with much less because the flavour is so intense. A light sprinkling on food before or after cooking is all it takes to add the flavour of the sea to any dish. This natural fine grain, mineral rich sea salt is the perfect ingredient sea salt. Indeed many of our country’s finest brands have embraced the powerful yet subtle intensity and taste profile. From the finest restaurants and hotels, to brands in hand cooked crisps, sauces, protein bars, butters, beverage and even curing hams, Oriel Sea Salt delivers a punch of flavour and intensity.
The team at Oriel has created a unique Irish product. We think you’ll agree.
“It's not until you taste this salt that you realise how clean and pure its flavour could and should be. And its Irish we should all be using it!!!" Ross Lewis, Chapter One.
