BRANDY IS A SPIRIT PRODUCED BY DISTILLING WINE. BRANDY GENERALLY CONTAINS 40% ALCOHOL BY VOLUME AND IS TYPICALLY DRUNK AS AN AFTER-DINNER DIGESTIF.

THE TASTE OF BRANDY VARIES DEPENDING ON THE FRUIT IT IS MADE FROM AND ITS AGE, BUT GENERALLY BRANDY IS SWEETER THAN WHISKEY AND TASTES OF FLOWERS, FRESH AND DRIED FRUITS AND CITRUS ZEST.

白兰地是一种用葡萄酒蒸馏而成的烈性酒。它的酒精含量高达40%,一般供人们在餐后饮用。白兰地的味道随原料果品种和陈酿年份的不同而不同,但一般而言,白兰地要比威士忌甜,而且具有浓浓的鲜花、鲜果、干果和柑橘香味。




 
AMONG THE MOST RENOWNED ARE BRANDIES PRODUCED IN FRANCE AND IN ARMENIA.

世界上最著名的白兰地大多来自法国和亚美尼亚。

 

 

GOOD QUALITY BRANDIES ARE PRODUCED FROM SPECIAL VARIETIES OF GRAPES AND PROVIDE DISTINCT AROMA AND CHARACTER.

生产优质白兰地需要使用具有特殊香气与特性的特定葡萄品种。

 

 

ARMENIAN BRANDY IS CONSIDERED AS ONE OF THE BEST IN THE WORLD.

亚美尼亚品牌被认为是世界上最好的品牌之一。

 

 

THE FIRST COMMERCIAL BRANDY FACTORY IN ARMENIA WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1887.

1887年,亚美尼亚第一家商业白兰地酒厂成立

 

 

THE BEST RECOGNITION FOR THE ARMENIAN BRANDY CAME IN 1913 WHEN THE BIGGEST BRANDY PRODUCER - "SHUSTOV AND SONS COMPANY" WAS HONORED BY BECOMING THE SUPPLIER OF THE RUSSIAN EMPEROR'S COURT.

1913年,亚美尼亚白兰地获得了有史以来的最高荣誉:亚美尼亚当时最大的白兰地生产商——“舒斯托夫父子公司/ SHUSTOV AND SONS COMPANY”荣膺俄国沙皇宫廷供货商。

 



ONLY 30 LUCKY ENTREPRENEURS - BOTH LOCAL AND INTERNATIONAL - HAD SIMILAR TITLE. TO OBTAIN IT, THEY HAD TO PARTICIPATE IN ALL PROVINCIAL EXHIBITIONS AND GET NOT A SINGLE REPRIMAND FOR QUALITY FOR AT LEAST 8 YEARS. REGRETTABLY, AFTER 1917 REVOLUTION "SHUSTOV AND SONS COMPANY" WAS NATIONALIZED AND THE BRAND NAME GOT LOST AMONG THOUSANDS OF OTHER NAMES AND DESTINIES FORGOTTEN DURING 1920'S.

当年,全世界只有30家企业幸运地获得了这一殊荣。为争取这项荣誉,当年的酒厂主参加了所有的省级展览会,而且在连续8年的时间里从未遭遇任何品质批评。可惜的是,1917年十月革命之后,“舒斯托夫父子公司”被收归国有,其品牌在随后的20年代里泯然众人,被彻底遗忘。

 

 

STARTING EARLY 1900S ARMENIAN BRANDIES WERE OFTEN BEATING THEIR FRENCH COMPETITORS AT INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITIONS IN FRANCE, ENGLAND AND BELGIUM.

20世纪初开始,亚美尼亚白兰地就在不断地在法国、英国和比利时举行的各种国际展会上击败法国竞争对手。

      



 

BRANDY IS AGED IN OAK BARRELS FOR 3 YEARS AND MORE.

白兰地要在橡木桶内陈酿三年以上。



EVERY BOTTLE OF BRANDY HAS CLEAR INDICATION ABOUT ITS AGE. THE LABEL WOULD EITHER DISTINCTLY SPECIFY THE NUMBER OF YEARS IT WAS AGED IN OAK BARRELS
(FOR EXAMPLE: AGED 5 YEARS, AGED 7 YEARS, AGED 10 YEARS, … AGED 50 YEARS OR SO) OR IT WOULD INDICATE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING TRADITIONAL AGE GRADING SYMBOLS:

每一瓶白兰地都会清楚标明它的陈酿时间。酒标上要么会醒目地说明白兰地在橡木桶里的陈酿年数
(如:
5年陈酿,7年陈酿,10年陈酿…50年陈酿等),要么会出现以下传统陈酿等级标识:

IN 1945 A SPECIAL 50 DEGREE BRANDY WAS PRODUCED IN ARMENIA FOR THE YALTA CONFERENCE. SIR WINSTON CHURCHILL (THE PRIME MINISTER OF GREAT BRITAIN) ASKED JOSEPH STALIN (THE GENERAL SECRETARY OF THE CENTRAL COMMITTEE OF THE COMMUNIST PARTY OF THE SOVIET UNION) FOR A BATCH OF BRANDY. STALIN ANSWERED: "THE SOVIET UNION HAS FULL SUPPLY OF ARMENIAN BRANDY, SO IT MAY BE SOLD AS WELL". SINCE THEN THE "FATHER OF NATIONS" (I.E. JOSEPH STALIN) WAS PERSONALLY CONTROLLING THE REGULAR SUPPLIES OF BRANDY PRODUCED IN ARMENIA TO THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER.

1945年,亚美尼亚特别为雅尔塔会议酿制了一批50度白兰地。当时,英国首相丘吉尔向苏共中央书记斯大林讨要一批白兰地。斯大林说:“苏联有亚美尼亚全部的白兰地,我想可以卖一点。”自那时起,在斯大林的亲手指挥下,苏联开始定期向丘吉尔供应白兰地。

 

AFTER MANY YEARS, WHEN AGED CHURCHILL WAS ASKED ABOUT THE SECRET OF HIS LONGEVITY, HE ANSWERED WITHOUT HESITATION: "NEVER BE LATE FOR DINNER, SMOKE HAWAIIAN CIGARS AND DRINK ARMENIAN BRANDY!"

许多年后,当有人向丘吉尔问起他长寿的秘诀时,

他毫不犹豫地答道:“按时吃饭,抽哈瓦那雪茄,喝亚美尼亚白兰地。”
