The seven year old ARARAT Otborny is a descendant of the first Armenian vintage brandy, created back in 1902. This complex and multi-faceted blend has a light aroma of fresh orange peel and a deep, long taste with hints of caramel and bitter almonds.

Aged 7 years. Alc. by vol. — 40%

The elegant simplicity of ARARAT Otborny can give importance to any occasion. This historic blend will be a worthy gift not only to a true brandy connoisseur, but also to any man.

ARARAT Otborny was the first vintage brandy, created in 1902 by the famous blending master Mkrtich Musinyants. It brought glory to its creator far from Armenia, was recognised in the historical home of cognac and was supplied to the Court of His Imperial Highness.

It is believed that the tradition of chasing a sip of brandy with a wedge of lemon comes from a Russian Emperor and was affectionately named after him and known as “Nikolashka.” The typical lemon slice – even when sprinkled with powdered sugar or coffee grounds – can really taste edgy. However, since the legend of Armenian ARARAT brandy being introduced at the court of His Imperial Majesty is inextricably linked with "Nikolashaka", it is sometimes appropriate to enjoy a glass of ARARAT this way – as a tribute to history.
