Yerevan Brandy Company information
Occupying a commanding position on a hill overlooking the Hrazdan Gorge, this fortress-like distillery offers daily guided tours including generous tastings. The company cellars are full of barrels dating back to the 19th century, including one that won’t be opened until a Karabakh peace deal appears. Tours take 75 minutes – the charge is AMD4500 if two recent vintages of brandy are tasted, AMD10,000 if you opt for three aged vintages.
To get here from the city centre, walk across the Haghtanak Bridge, hop aboard marshrutka 5 or 259 on Mesrop Mashtots Ave (AMD100) or take a taxi (AMD600). Book your tour at least one day in advance.
