The best types of Armenian brandy

Due to their "nationality", Armenian cognacs are among the best cognacs in the world.

This has always been the case not only with cognacs but also with wines. Being an ancient nation, Armenians were also considered producers of good wines. There are many stories and legends about wines, in the Bible, in history books, etc. 

According to a legend, Noah's ark stopped on Mount Ararat during the flood. Noah released the dove to find land, and the bird returned with the olive branch. When the waters recede, Noah descends from the mountain and settles in the field. He was then six hundred years old. Together with his sons, he begins to grow grapes. It is believed that mankind experienced the taste of wine for the first time when Noah tasted the life-giving drink at the foot of Mount Ararat.
Ancient manuscripts and folk traditions prove that in the territory of modern Armenia winemaking and viticulture have been practiced since the 15th century BC. The works of Greek historians Herodotus, Xenophon, and Strabo mention that Armenian brandy was exported to neighboring countries for sale. The wine was of high quality, old and varied. Armenia is the country with the oldest tradition of growing grapes.
