Armenian Brandy Tasting
"Good people are good because they've come to wisdom through failure. We get very little wisdom from success, you know." -- William Saroyan
Many wonderful things have come from the historic country of Armenia, including the Pulitzer Prize winning author William Saroyan, the inventors of the color TV and the MRI machine, the family that popularized yogurt in the US, and famous Armenian brandy!
Did you know that Winston Churchill's favorite brandy was the legendary Ararat brand from Armenia, and from 1945 until his death, he received a complimentary case of it each month from the Soviet ambassador to the UK?
Taste four vintages of Armenian brandy, hear an Armenian poetry recitation and enjoy delicious Armenian 'mezze' (appetizers) while listening to traditional Armenian music!
