Akhtamar brandy – Aged: 10 years
Beautiful amber color with a touch of copper. Lively and elegant aroma. Beeswax, hazelnut and oak bark with traces of vanilla and dried plum dominate the bouquet. Rounded, hidden, sweetish taste unfolds gradually offering you a temptingly long aftertaste. Light dryness in the end is counter-balanced by shades of cinnamon.
During his reign in the 10th century, King Gagik I of the Bagratuni dynasty chose to build a luxurious royal residence on Akhtamar Island, situated on Lake Van in the heart of the medieval Duchy of Greater Armenia. The spacious palace was surrounded by gardens and orchards. The name of the island was inspired by the legend of Princess Tamar and her love for a handsome young man who drowned in the harsh waters of Lake Van with the words “Ah, Tamar”.
