Few of Armenia’s exports have garnered an international reputation as great as that of our prized brandy. The secret lies within Armenian Highland.
Perched in the heights of our mountains, and blessed with a sunny climate, Armenian grapes are ideal for brandy production. To qualify as a traditional Armenian cognac, production must employ a unique locally-grown grape variety and natural spring water. This simple method was enough to sway french judges at the International Exhibition in Paris back in 1900 . They not only awarded it the Grand-Prix medal, but also the distinction of being the only brandy outside of France to legally use the term ‘cognac’.
