The Einville Salt

Since 1871

It was in Einville, a small village located between Nancy and Lunéville, where salt mining from an old sea started over one century ago. Rare and highly pure salt.

Rare like its deposit

In an alcove hidden 200 metres underground at the heart of an unpolluted site, pure, extremely natural salt is formed, which deserves to be called Sel à l’Ancienne.

Rare and unique like its harvesting !

Salt is extracted by dissolution on contact with a sheet of extremely pure and regularly controlled fresh water. It is not processed and contains no additives. It is pure and stays pure. For 140 years, Sel à l’Ancienne is harvested by hand using a traditional method, which preserves its unique pureness and many qualities. This method gives the salt its lightness and richness. The rare and precious values of Sel à l’Ancienne are its authenticity, tradition and respect for the cycles of nature.
You cannot be mistaken. The Einville Salt Works are the last salt works to produce this famous Sel à l’Ancienne.
