Armenian Brandy

Brandy's big business in Armenia. After all, they've been purportedly distilling Wine to make their Brandy since the 12th century.

The drink of Russian czars, Armenian Brandy is made from grapes that are then double-distilled in oak casks—much like its Cognac cousin.

But don't call it a Cognac, lest your raise the ire of the appellation d'origine.
