Salt Your Cocktails Sustainably with MV Sea Salt


We’ve always loved Martha’s Vineyard Sea Salts; we give the tiny “traveler packs” as hostess gifts, and the tall sea glass cylinders for holidays

MV Sea Salt has always held sustainability at the center of their practice. Heidi and Curtis Feldman and their crew use open Atlantic Ocean water, filtered at 50 microns to remove sand, organic material, and other contaminants before setting the water out in large, covered “ponds” — basically large containers that allow the water to evaporate. When the water has fully evaporated, the result is a beautifully pure sea salt that’s ready for packaging.

Although there is no USDA “organic” designation for minerals, MV Sea Salt does their best to make a product that is as close to the Earth as possible. Their product is designated as a “raw” salt, meaning it is not artificially dried by being boiled or heated to more than 115 degrees. Instead, the company relies on a solar drying process. It takes a bit longer, but the results are worth the wait (and better for the planet).

MV Sea Salt recently made a major design change to their bamboo sea salt cocktail rimmers (which themselves can be repurposed when you’ve used them up at your margarita party). Each container includes one ounce of three different salts (premium original; blueberry and honey; and sumac, paprika, and garlic), and each package is resealable and reusable. It’s an eco-friendly party treat that’s easy to take to the beach, on the boat, or to a picnic in the park.

Happy, salty summer!
