Alaska Pure Sea Salt
Original Sitka Flake
Alaska Pure Sea Salt Co. LLS started early one morning in April of 2000 in a remote Alaska cabin. While celebrating our first anniversary, we woke to find salt forming on the surface of a pan of sea water we'd left on the wood stove. We were intrigued.
Every April, we returned to the same cabin and made "anniversary" salt for the next year's use in our kitchen. There we realized we couldn't resist pursuing this salt discovery ever further.
Back home in Sitka, Alaska, we spent years lugging jugs of sea water up a steep harbor ramp. We survived backaches, headaches, and probably could have used some marriage counseling. We tested and refined batch after batch. Finally, we created the right balance of science and artistry that resulted in the perfect flake salt.
Soon, it was being used by some of the nation's best chefs. Now, we are proud to offer it to you.
Alaska Pure Sea Salt is created with a passion for great food, wild places, the pristine Alaska waters, and of course, each other. We hope you enjoy our hand crafted salt with as much enthusiasm as we have for producing it.
