Buy squid ink from Basco and add a full, rich taste and striking black colour to paellas, other rice dishes, pastas and risottos. Squid ink brings out the flavour nuances of each ingredient while adding mild seafood hints, without tasting fishy. It is the essential ingredient in Arroz Negro (black rice), the famous black paella of Valencia, and a favourite throughout the region for striking looking dishes and the intense flavours of traditional Spanish dishes.

When you buy squid ink from Basco, you are buying an authentic natural product which can be used on a variety of dishes and recipes. Please don’t compromise on any other squid ink substitute and choose a quality product such as Nortindal squid ink.

Squid ink is created from cuttlefish caught fresh from the Atlantic Ocean around 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.
