Armenia is famous for high quality brandy. I attended a tour with a group of 12 to see how brandy is produced. The tour was well presented and interesting to me. I don't drink alcohol so my perspective was more about learning how a grape turns into the highest quality brandy. I enjoyed the tour. The group was happiest at the end where samples of brandy were provided. I felt no pressure to purchase product.

This tour was presented in English (everyday at 14h00) and was done by a very well spoken and knowledgeable guide. She provided us with more than just the process of how they make it but also very interesting history about the process and ownership of the company.

A tour guide brought us here for a brandy tasting session they booked. The attraction nests on a hill overlooking Yerevan, the river and some bridges. From the bottom of the hill, the museum is imposing and grand-looking.

There are designated tour times which vary a little from weekday to weekends. You will want to confirm the tour times. Inside you need a pay a tour fee which varies depending on the number of brandies you want to taste. We opted for the 3 brand taster because we are not BIG brandy fans.

The tour is small and indoors but includes videos on the production process, a description of the barrel making and sourcing process and some historical memorabilia around the brand. You would expect this from a wine tour or similar distillery tour. The unique tour elements come from the history of this brand and production in Armenia. There are dedicated brandies to prominent politicians in the region (including the now deceased Yeltsin). There is also a peace barrel to be opened once the dispute between Azerbaijan and Armenia concludes. You get to sign the peace barrel which looks impressive surrounded by flags and covered in felt marker signatures.

The brandy tasting takes place in a red brick room; the guide talks you through the flavours, what to look for, how to drink etc.

It is a short tour. The guides are clearly very proud of this national treasure. I recommend taking a later afternoon tour as it is quieter so you are more likely to get small groups. There is also something odd about drinking brandy much earlier in the day!
