  • It is said that their forefather, Georges Binet, wigmaker and confidant of Louis XIV, introduced salt to the King's Court in 1660. It was harvested in Batz, the salt capital of the Guérande region. In the Binet family, ennobled in 1718, the adage goes: “ Salt of the king, in the marshes of the village of Batz you will crystallize, never mixed, never crushed, in an easterly wind you will be born! " It is by combining the centuries-old know-how of the Benedictine monks with high standards and modernity that Edouard and Cédric have developed this collection of unrivalled salts.
