Shakmat — a hidden gem of flavor and tradition.

Shakmat (or shakhmat) is the Armenian word for Chess. But our Shakmat is so much more than a game. It is a symbol. A symbol of life, persistence, patience, and wisdom of a people that do not fall, even when held in check.

Shakmat 23YO is a premium brandy originating from the birthplace of winemaking. It is an embodiment of Armenia’s two national treasures — Chess and Konyak. The time has come for Armenian brandy to reclaim its rightful place on the World Spirits map. 

"Every decision we made, from the selection of grape varieties, distillation techniques, distillates and the final blend, was to ensure Shakmat is a refined, extraordinary Spirit which preserves the DNA of an authentic Armenian brandy. Creating Shakmat required a lot of planning, a few sacrifices and just like in a passionate chess game, some strategic moves. We made the right ones at the right time and now we’re inviting YOU to be the judge of the gameplay." — Grisa & Jugo, Flaviar founders

Turns out, Brandy’s a pretty decent meteorologist. Back in the 1600s, the Spirit was used in thermometers before it was replaced by mercury.
After sneaking into the 1900 International Exhibition in Paris as a Cognac, Shustov & Son's Armenian Brandy won a blind tasting and the Grand Prix. They were then granted the right to legally call their product Cognac, even though it had not been produced in the Cognac region. Cheers to a proper hoodwinking!
Armenian Brandy, also known as “Konyak” or “Kanyak,” has been a favorite among celebrities and powerful leaders throughout history, including Nero, Joseph Stalin, Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra, and mystery writer Agatha Christie.
