  Yerevan Brandy Company

I'm not a lover of alcohol drinks, but Armenia's world famous aged cognac/brandy is what I really love. The production of Armenian brandy can be traced to 1887, when an upper guild merchant named Nerses Tairyants built the country’s first combined winery and distillery on the site of the former fortress of Yerevan. In 1920 it was nationalized. In 1953 the factory was moved to an enormous new facility that was the pride of Armenia and renamed Yerevan Brandy Company. This impressive facility continues to produce Armenia’s most famous brandies – ARARAT.

The tour includes excursion to brandy ageing barrel site and museum, and brandy tasting.
