ARARAT Single Cask is a limited edition spirit of the Yerevan Brandy Company. The characteristic flavor of the product obtained from one cask without any assemblage is the end result of the unique terroir of the Tavush region in Northern Armenia.

Each bottle of the limited edition ARARAT Single Cask has been hand-marked with a unique number designating the cask in which it was kept.

Through a process of blind tasting, the master blender selected spirits from three casks, which are particularly versatile, refined, and complete.

Those spirits, in their pure form, without assemblage, comprise the limited edition ARARAT Single Cask. For maximum preservation of its unique organoleptic properties, ARARAT Single Cask had not been put through chill filtration, while its strength had only been reduced to 57% (114 proof).

ARARAT Single Cask has a strong, multifaceted, and rich taste. Its unique character manifests itself in deep woody and smoky notes with soft hints of vanilla and spicy cinnamon. For a more vivid, flavorful experience, we recommend tasting in a chilled glass.

What’s Unique?
Non-usual bottle shape for Armenian brandy market, wooden gift box, minimalist design, negative space in label design

  1. A bit disappointed. For that price I expected a longer lasting case. Got a Whisky from Taiwan the same day that costs half as much, but the package was top: A leather tube that keeps the bottle safe. For Ararat Single Cask: Why not real wood, f.e.? I mean, the bottle costs almost 200 € and is advertised as something super special!
