A Warm Aloha from the Rare Hawaiian Honey Company

We spare no expense and pay meticulous attention to detail to bring you raw, certified organic honey from rare Hawaiian nectar sources. We also go to great lengths to implement business practices that are healthy for the environment and local community. Whether you’re looking for a pure monofloral honey, a blend of tropical nectars or our culinary infusions, we have what you need to make a lasting, savory impression. Be sure to read our suggestions on pairings for each honey variety.
What is White Kiawe Honey?
The Rare Hawaiian Honey Company owes its existence to a single 1000 acre Kiawe forest on the dry side of the Island of Hawai’i. Kiawe (pronounced “kee ah’ vay”) is the Hawaiian name for a species of mesquite (Prosopis pallida) that is native to Ecuador and Peru. We produce the world’s rarest gourmet honey from these special trees. Our Kiawe Honey is unique in that it naturally crystallizes into a very creamy white honey with a very delicate tropical flavor. To produce comparable texture with other honey varieties, a machine must be used to grind the crystals, something we never do at the Rare Hawaiian Honey Company. Not only is our Kiawe honey raw, but it is Certified 100% Organic by the International Certification Services, Inc.
Sharks & Honey?
This may seem like an odd combination, but read on….
First, Rare Hawaiian Honey Company owner, Dr. Michael Domeier, is one of the premiere white shark researchers in the world. His work at the Marine Conservation Science Institute (www.MarineCSI.org) has led to many new discoveries, scientific publications, TV programs and even a book. One thing he discovered was that Great White Sharks are rare in Hawaii, since only a select few migrate from the coasts of Mexico and California to the Hawaiian Islands.
Hawaii is also home to one of the rarest, certified organic, gourmet honey varieties on earth: Kiawe Honey. Kiawe Honey is so rare that it’s listed in the Slow Foods Ark of Taste (like the endangered species list of food). At the Rare Hawaiian Honey Company, we have pulled our very best Kiawe Honey and put it through a slow natural crystallization process to create the best of the best, Rare Hawaiian Great White Honey!
To celebrate both the Great White Shark and our Great White Honey, we are donating 10% of the proceeds from this honey to shark research. Please enjoy this gourmet honey while knowing you are giving back to the environment.
