from unexpected places

THE EXOTICS

A collection of seven delicious premium quality sea salts specifically selected for their uniqueness and superb flavor.

Natural, unrefined salt has been produced in every region in the world for centuries. Because of various weather conditions, harvesting seasons and water sources, each location produces a slightly different flavor and saltiness, a different crystalline structure and even variations in color! These seven premium quality sea salts bring to light vastly different histories, harvesting and mining techniques and the vital economic impact these salts have on local trade and culture.

Vital to life itself, natural sea salt has been used not only as a preservative and seasoning of foods, but it has also been used as a currency in ancient times. Mass industrialization of salt production in the last 150 years, resulted in losing much of our true Artisan salts. That is, until recently, when a renewed interest in clean, natural flavors and the demand for higher quality foods has brought back these beautiful salts into the marketplace! Some of these producers are small, but they offer a variety of delicious and unique salts you might never discover on your own. Presented here is a collection of seven unique and some even rare salts for you to enjoy!

Packaged in glass jars with a wax seal and wooden serving spoon, our newest collection of luxury sea salts make an excellent hostess, holiday, shower or wedding gift!

lacy wing-like clusters resembling that of a Dragonfly’s wing premium quality sea salt

lacy wing-like clusters, beautiful + delicate

ORIGIN: SOUTH AFRICA

On Summer mornings, only when the air is very still, salt crystals begin to form, on the surface of salt pans filled with pure, cold water from Antarctic currents that run along the western coast of South Africa along St. Helena’s bay. These crystals come together to form lacy wing-like clusters resembling that of a Dragonfly’s wing. Beautiful and extremely delicate, this salt is prized for its slight prick to the tongue and then dissolves, leaving a flavor that is as sweet as it is salty—a mysterious sensation.

delightful, crisp + flaky whole mineral sea salt

PRODUCT OF ICELAND

Despite its name, Iceland actually enjoys a fairly mild climate, due to the Jet Stream just beneath the Arctic Circle. From the very beginning, Iceland has been a contra-diction of itself—at once Ice and Fire from its volcanic activity, still quite active today. As daylight is at a premium, there is little vegetation and trees and nothing to really burn like coal to create heat, Iceland turns to its plentiful volcanic geothermal heat to evaporate the pristine North Atlantic sea waters to produce a delightful crisp and flaky, whole mineral sea salt that is becoming quite popular around the world!

multi-award winning, premium quality Scottish sea salt

multi-award winning, premium quality

PRODUCT OF SCOTLAND

From the old Norse sky-a, meaning “cloud island,” a Viking reference to the mist enshrouded Cuillen hills, the Isle of Skye is a patchwork of velvet moors, jagged mountains, sparkling lochs and towering sea cliffs.  Since 600 BC, salt production in Scotland was plentiful using available wood, peat and coal as a source of heat to evaporate the sea waters from the salt pans. The early 1700s saw the last salt produced on the Isle of Skye until 2013 when a small group of friends, using innovative and environmentally aware production methods for natural solar evaporation, began producing a beautiful, whole mineral, natural sea salt, ideal for Scottish Salmon and all your favorite seafood dishes!

A delicate, crunchy sea salt harvested from the Yellow Sea off the west coast of South Korea. Full of natural minerals, this flavorful salt is a perfect compliment to all  your cooking. In 2008, Salts of the 7 Seas was invited by The Jeollanamdo Provincial Gov. N Y Trade Office of S. Korea, to be their guest at the first annual Solar Sea Salt & International Food Fair in Gwangju, the second largest city in South Korea. We were so greatly impressed by their graciousness and commitment as a significant player on the world stage of commerce, agriculture, technology and manufacturing. On a cloudy, windswept  November day, we visited a family-owned sea salt farm on the west coast where they proudly showed us their custom black tiled salt ponds used in the spring and summer months for gathering sea waters and evaporating it slowly using only solar heat. The white and crunchy sea salt crystals left behind were further dried and aged in beautiful wood-lined salt barns located near the ponds. It was an amazing experience—an opportunity of a life-time and we wanted to share this beautiful Salt of Heaven™ sea salt and story with you!
