ARARAT 25

This fall we had few occasions to be truly happy. On one hand Republic of Armenia celebrated the 25th anniversary of Independence. On the other hand, Yerevan Brandy Company’s Cognac Ararat Nairi has won the Grand Prix and gold medal at the XX Moscow International Professional Contest of Wines and Spirits. But what made us even happier as avid lovers of legendary Armenian cognac, is how Yerevan Brandy Company celebrated the 25th anniversary of Armenia’s Independence – in his unique, delicious way. On this occasion the Company has released a limited edition brandy – ARARAT 25.

This remarkable blend was presented to the public on the eve of the anniversary celebration. Though in limited edition, many media representatives also had chance to taste the flavor of ARARAT 25. Yerevan Brandy Company produces unique and unordinary brandy, and so are the ways they present their products to the media. It’s not just an average press-release one could imagine, not just a piece of paper with some text and a photograph. ARARAT 25’s press release was as original as the blend itself: a hard copy box, more like an expensive present. And it truly was a present, with a special bottle containing this new blend’s flavor. And, trust us, it was remarkable.

This great present made us look back to the Yerevan Brandy Company’s history. Once again we could see how tightly it was always related to the Armenian history. Moreover, ARARAT is considered to be one of the country’s symbols. This noble drink has absorbed all the best that the Armenian land can give: its bright sun and an abundance of colors, love and dedication, and a respect for tradition and national pride. Since it’s founding, ARARAT has been and remains an important part in the lives of the people and their country. No surprise, it should be leave its footprint on the celebration of Armenian modern history’s most important event – Independence. ARARAT 25 is an exceptional brandy, created from ARARAT signature blends and old spirits, which were aged in oak barrels for a half-century. This exclusive alliance clearly reveals the nature of this noble brandy.
The unique blend has a beautiful color and a rich multifaceted taste, which includes shades of dark chocolate, toasted bread and sweet raisin. The amazing bouquet is filled with the aroma of vanilla, with a hint of caramel flavor. The drink reveals notes of black coffee, oak and pepper and ends with a long sweet aftertaste. This 25-year-old brandy is presented in an elegant bottle and a gift box decorated with the Coat of Arms of Armenia.

Dramatic twists in the history of Armenia, periods of triumph and stoic patience, climbing dynasties and the fortifying of new capitals affected the country’s heritage. As the unhurried process of aging the precious spirits contributes a thinner and richer taste, each new era tempered, rallied and strengthened the Armenian people. The unique taste of ARARAT 25 brandy is created from rare spirits kept in the treasury of the Yerevan Brandy Company. It also shows the strong devotion of Armenian brandy makers to their native land and the people of Armenia.
