Khash is a liquid hot soup, one of the ancient Armenian dishes. The name "Khash" originated from the Armenian word "khashel", the names of other dishes (khashlama, khashu, khashil) originated from the same word. In Armenian literature, broth is referred to as "khashou" or "khashoy" since the 11th century, for the first time in the work "Relief of Fevers" by Grigor Magistros.
Making khash is a whole ritual, when men gather in the evening and cook the food on a low heat all night.
Armenian brandy, or cognac as it’s called by locals, is made from selected grapes that are grown in the Ararat Valley. This strong alcoholic beverage is historically famous all over the world for its high quality, incredible flavor, and best traditions. The beverage is classified into three categories depending on the method and time of aging: ordinary, collection, and vintage. The most expensive collections of cognacs are the ones produced by vintage cognacs, additionally aged for at least three years in oak barrels. For collection cognacs, the names of vintage cognacs are preserved.
