  • Famous Brandy or cognac factory "Ararat". It is made from the distillation of white grapes and ageing becomes Brown. It's known around the world but more in neighbouring countries. The visit to the factory is part of most tourist circuits. There is evidence and tasting for those who like it. Be sure to taste your scent and taste different from usual. Is found for sale in all Armenian shops.

  • The tour was very interesting. Wine tasting was good as well.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • On their website they claim reservation can be done via email. But when I emailed them, they did not reply. That's pretty frustrating.
