In 1997, we had a go at making our own sea salt by leaving a saucepan of Anglesey seawater to bubble away on the ancient Aga in our family kitchen. As the salt crystals started to form, we knew we’d struck culinary gold and Halen Môn was born. 

Today, Halen Môn remains a family company and we continue to be all about provenance, product and people. We are very particular about where we make our sea salt, how we make it and whom we get to harvest it. We believe that this is the best sea salt money can buy. And we’ve even been given Protected Designation of Origin status which puts our sea salt up there with the likes of Champagne and Parma Ham. We think people who appreciate good food appreciate good sea salt to season it with. And we believe that Halen Môn is a vital ingredient in any food lover’s kitchen.

We hope you feel the same and enjoy exploring our site as much as you do cooking with our sea salt.
