Ararat of Minsk bottling
Country’s first cognac bottling line launches in Belarusian capital
Yerevan Ararat Brandy-Wine-Vodka Factory and Belarustorg have founded a joint venture: Armenian Standard. Meeting the Armenian businessmen, Alexander Lukashenko noted the need to implement several joint projects. Two years ago, a Belarusian trading house opened in Yerevan. Now, Armenian cognac bottling has been launched in the Belarusian capital. Both projects are successful, showing that further investment co-operation is likely to be fruitful.
The enterprise has modern equipment and storage, with tight laboratory control, allowing everything to meet 21st century standards. Ingredients are imported from Armenia, creating three and five-star cognac: the best in Belarus.
Mr. Lukashenko has familiarised himself with the factory’s technological processing and quality control, having toured the site. He received the first bottle of Armenian cognac off the production line and passed the gift to the Museum of Modern Belarusian Statehood. He gave the second bottle to the enterprise’s co-founder, Armenian businessman Gagik Tsarukyan, saying, “This is for you, as a man of your word. You have done all that you said you would. It is important that our officials always give people such as yourself the green light.”
The President has suggested that the businessman carry out other projects in Belarus.
