Our salt is harvested and refined at the heart of Europe in Austria’s Salzkammergut region. Immerse yourself in our world of BAD ISCHLER salt, and taste the power of the Austrian Alps.


For over 7,000 years, we have been working with passion to harvest our salt from the mountains of the Salzkammergut. This region sits at the very heart of Europe and is famous around the world for its unparalleled natural landscape – lakes the colour of turquoise, filled with the purest water, and green forests are ringed by spectacular mountain scenery. This is the home of our BAD ISCHLER salt.
