Ararat Brandy Factory
Established in 1889. Now owned by the French giant Pernod Ricot, the Ararat Brandy Factory continues to produce brandy which has a worldwide following.
The brandy distillery stands on a high plateau at the other end of Haghtanak Bridge (Victory Bridge), as if competing with the Ararat Wine Factory in architectural design and the quality of its produce. Architect Ovanes Markaryan used all the geographical features to advantage, and the building, with its nine austere arches, and long flight of steps leading to it, puts a striking finish to the view of the Haghtanak Bridge (Victory Bridge).
The Brandy Factory offers tours, with a full visit to its production facilities, and tasting of their various brandies. Call for more information (+374-10) 54-00-00.
