  • We took tour to the Yerevan Brandy factory twice. We really enjoyed there. In this tour you can touch to history of the Armenian Cognac.  more »
  • The business card of Armenia. Very interesting and informative excursion and Oboldennaya tasting! The best cognac can be tasted and bought here.

  • Plant "Ararat" belongs to the company Pernod Ricard, which produce such brands as Chivas, Martell, Olmeca. Tickets for tours of the plant are booked in advance with the choice of the date and time of the visit, which is convenient for planning the rest of your free time. The tour itself was conceived quite well and the format is interesting, but apparently "weak-willed" guides and on time quickly, because they did not manage to carefully consider everything, read and listen. But on all interesting questions the girl-guide answered lucidly and fully. The tasting ceremony was held at a high level, all explained, told, did not rush. At the entrance there is a firm shop with a good choice and prices lower than in the shops of the city.

  • The tour was very interesting. Wine tasting was good as well.
  • Good factory where you can get traditional Armenian brandy, made of grapes. There is a museum inside where are shown the process of making brandy. Nice and pleasant atmosphere
  • The only cognac manufactured outside of France, per decree from Napolean. Slight charge for the tour, but well worth it. You get to compare 5, 10 and 15 year old cognacs at the end-of-tour tasting room. Delightful!
  • Could not forget the taste of Ararat Brandy. affordable price too. we went there by walking from Yerevan center.
  • It was a very entertaining tour. Try to get the 3 variety tasting. Or just get the cheaper tasting and buy the others in bottle
