ARARAT brandies won medals at the San Francisco International Wine and Spirits Competition

Through the 16th San Francisco International Wine and Spirits Competition held, ten year old ARARAT Akhtamar brandy of the Yerevan Brandy Company won a Gold medal, and ‘Five Stars’ ARARAT brandy aged 5 years won a Silver medal.

The yearly San Francisco International Wine and Spirits Competition (SFIWSC) was established in 2000 and is considered as one of the leading and most influential of its kind. This year, over 1,850 entries from around the world competed for the Best in Class award. The judging panel comprised of 39 industry experts conducting an expert appraisal from March 17th till 20th. It should be pointed out that according to the competition organisers, ARARAT is the first Armenian brand representing Armenia through the competition history ever.

The winner of numerous gold and silver medals, Akhtamar brandy has been produced by the Yerevan Brandy Company since 1967.

It is exported to over 30 countries and embodies the ARARAT Art Collection initiative – one of the cultural humanitarian vectors of the Yerevan Brandy Company. Since 2012 of the initiative establishment, the Company has been presenting a limited edition of Akhtamar brandy in special packaging for the true connoisseurs of art and Armenian brandy. In different years, ARARAT Art Collection devoted its limited series of brandies to theatre, Sergei Paradjanov and historical and cultural heritage of Armenia.

Eminent artists such as Pavel Kaplevich and Garen Bedrossian worked on the packaging of these limited series of brandies.

ARARAT Akhtamar is amber in colour with a touch of copper. Its bouquet is dominated by the notes of beeswax, walnut and oak bark with a base of vanilla and plum. Round hidden sweetish taste unfolds gradually offering you a temptingly long aftertaste, and light dryness in the end is counter-balanced by shades of cinnamon.
