Tobin’s Trip to Armenia with Ararat Brandy

At the end of 2019, Bar Director Tobin Shea traveled to Armenia with Ararat Brandy to explore the country’s rich history, cuisine and of course, spirits. See photos from his trip below.

Inspired by the visit, Ararat Apricot Brandy made its way onto Mr. Shea’s You are Here cocktail collection shortly thereafter in the Everlasting, his take on a whiskey sour. Find the recipe here.
