"The oldest brand of Armenian brandy, Ararat, was founded by Nerses and Vasily Tairyan in 1887. Over 130 years ago, these pioneers laid the foundations of what would become a pinnacle of premium, high-quality brandy, with its first international recognition occurring in the 1902 World Exhibition in the birthplace of cognac: France. Since then, Ararat has grown in recognition, notoriety, and breadth, spanning throughout 35 countries as the first global Armenian cognac. Their award-winning statements offer a beautiful balance of history, tradition, and authenticity with modernity, uniqueness, and innovation. At their Yerevan distillery, experienced cognac artisans craft brandy with local Armenian grapes and fresh water from the Katnakhbyur spring and age in barrels made with Caucasian oak wood. Ararat VSOP 10 year is named for “Akhtamar” a beautiful Armenian legend of a brave young man who risked traveling the treacherous waters of Lake Van for Princess Tamar. This ten year old brandy is crafted from over fifteen distillates, each tasted and hand-selected. With beautiful warm amber and copper shades, Akhtamar is full-bodied and silky-smooth. Its pleasantly tart flavors balance with notes of prunes and cinnamon alongside highlights of walnut, oak, vanilla, and beeswax. Sip 10 year Ararat Brandy neat, using the warmth from the palm of your hand to reveal more of its pleasant, velvety character. "
