Squid ink is created from cuttlefish caught fresh from the Atlantic Ocean surrounding the beautiful Basque Country. Cuttlefish is a type of sepia, a relative of the squid, but has long been hailed as having a more pristine ink that is better for cooking due to its rich, non-fishy flavour.
The ink is preserved with sea salt and remains good for up to 4 years in storage unopened. Once opened, keep in the refrigerator and use within 1-2 weeks. No artificial preservatives are added. You may freeze the remainder of the squid ink if need be.
