Armenian brandy is the pride of Armenians: it accompanies every single wedding and celebration and its story goes back all the way to Noah, when he planted the first wine tree. The Yerevan Brandy Factory itself was founded in 1887 when Nikolay Tairyan built a cognac factory in the place of old Erivan Castle. Soon after in 1900 Shustov, the next owner of Cognac factory presented his production to an exhibition in Paris and received a Grand Prize for the drink. In addition to the prize Shustov's production received the permission to be called Cognac. This was the start of the winning campaign as in 1913 the Brandy factory became one of 30 companies to provide production to His Excellency the Emperor.

The list of devotees to the Armenian Brandy includes many celebrities such as Sir Winston Churchill to whom the provision of Brandy was maintained by Stalin himself. In his late years, when Churchill was asked what the secret of his long life was, he answered: "Never be late for lunch, smoke Hawaiian cigars and drink Armenian Brandy".

Yerevan Brandy Factory is the right place to receive first hand information regarding the techniques of production, to taste this legendary drink.
