Yerevan Brandy Company information
Lonely Planet review
‘The fairyland of the world-famous Armenian brandy’, Yerevan Brandy Company runs fun tours with generous tastings from its iconic premises by the Hrazdan River. The company has cellars 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, including tastings, and end at the souvenir shop. It’s a pleasant walk across the Haghtanak Bridge or a short taxi ride (AMD600) from the city centre.
