ARARAT is the most famous and successful Armenian brandy brand in the world.

The history of the oldest Armenian brandy brand began in 1887, during the period of occupation of Armenia by the Russian Empire, when the first production was founded thanks to Nerses and Vasily Tairyan. After the creation of the Soviet Union the company became state-owned, but in 1999 it was sold to the company French Pernod Ricard.

Over the years, ARARAT has become a true symbol of the highest quality, confirmed by numerous international awards and certificates.
