The Perfect Gift for a Foodie

Famous salt company adds Sage & Onion Flavour for Christmas

Halen Môn, the iconic Anglesey sea salt producer, has created a brand new Christmas Dinner flavoured salt, especially for the festive season.

The Christmas Dinner Salt Blend is infused with sage and onion, and is a perfect accompaniment to the most highly anticipated meal of the year.

Halen Môn is a family-run business and the brainchild of husband and wife team, David and Alison Lea-Wilson, who 17 years ago, took a saucepan of water from the Menai Straits and heated the pan back at home to form pure crystals of unadulterated sea salt.

Fast forward to present day and these pure crystals have joined the ranks of Melton Mowbray, Champagne and Parma Ham by being awarded protected food name status by the European Commission.

Alison Lea-Wilson commented: “We have been experimenting with a festive salt for a while now and wanted to find a flavour that really accentuated a Christmas Dinner and added an aromatic twist; sage and onion really took us back to our family kitchen during the Christmas dinner preparations and we knew we had found a winner. My family love the Christmas blend sprinkled on roast potatoes, meat or vegetables.

A gem in the culinary crown of Anglesey, Halen Môn literally translates to Anglesey salt and the thriving business has helped to put Anglesey on the map – even Barack Obama is a fan of those little crystals.

Michael Thomas, Visit Anglesey’s Senior Development Officer said: “Halen Môn is exported to over 20 countries worldwide and Anglesey is proud to be home to the coveted brand. The Halen Môn visitor’s centre will be opening in the new year, so visitors to Anglesey will be able to watch the much loved condiment being made and learn about salt production on Anglesey.”

Peter Morrell, food and drink editor of AboutMyGeneration added “I have tried this on roast potatoes and it raised their taste to a whole new level. This is a unique gift for your foodie friends, they will love it.”
