ARARAT “Nairi” brandy won a gold medal in Tokyo Whisky and Spirits Competition
In June in the capital of Japan, the Tokyo Whiskey & Spirits Competition concluded its works, as a result of which 20-year-old ARARAT “Nairi” brandy was awarded the gold medal and “Category Winner” title.
The Tokyo Whisky & Spirits Competition, operated by the Japan Research Center, aims to reveal and promote high-quality spirits worldwide. This year, 427 drinks from different countries participated in the competition, including a variety of world-renowned brands. The competition was fierce for ARARAT “Nairi”, but the legendary Armenian brandy overcame both. The first stage of the competition was the individual expert evaluation, while the second was panel discussion. Overcoming those two, legendary brandy appeared in the “Best of the Best” category, as a result of which the golden victories of the competition were distributed.
“I am glad that by redesign of our packaging and opening a new chapter in the history of ARARAT brandies, we were soon highly appreciated in different parts of the world by the scrupulous specialists. I think, it comes to emphasize that the legendary Armenian brandy unconditionally continues the best traditions of victories, opening new perspectives for a wider and more comprehensive promotion of the brand”, — said Serge Khachatryan, Chief Operating Officer of Yerevan Brandy Company.
ARARAT “Nairi” brandy created in 1967, has won more than 30 gold medals in the world’s most prestigious competitions, but this is the first victory from the land of the rising sun.
