Secrets of craftsmanship
At the distillery in Yerevan the main components of the iconic brandy are combined. They include grapes grown in Armenia; Caucasian oak wood, from which the barrels for alcohol aging are made; spring water of the Katnakhbyur spring and the talent of the craftsmen who preserve the rich heritage of ARARAT brandies production.
The history of the oldest brand of Armenian brandy ARARAT began more than 130 years ago, in 1887, when the first brandy production in Armenia was founded. The spirit of pioneering, laid down by the founders Nerses and Vasily Tairyan, became the brand’s guide throughout its history: the first vintage cognac, the first international recognition at the 1902 World Exhibition in France, the birthplace of cognac. And today ARARAT, presented in 35 countries, is the first global brand of Armenian cognac.
Over the decades, ARARAT has become a real symbol of the highest quality, confirmed by numerous international awards and certificates, the most important of which is the recognition of consumers — lovers, connoisseurs and admirers of the Armenian ARARAT brandy in many countries.
The perfect balance of traditions and brand authenticity is ensured by ARARAT’s modern approach to its consumer. Unique blends, innovative products, cocktails and new brandy-based serving make ARARAT the perfect choice for any occasion: family celebration, party for friends or special occasion.
