The best way to drink Armenian brandy is with Armenian apricots - Alexis Ohanian
2018-11-28 17:53:30

The best way to drink Armenian brandy is with Armenian apricots, says Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian.

“You just pop out the pith and use it as a shot glass. Getting Armenian apricots is a little hard here in Florida, so regular ones work too. Most nights, I’m just sipping on it neat with a little dark chocolate,” Ohanian said in an interview with Food & Wine.

But more importantly, he advised, “do it with people you love.”

“I know it’s kitschy, but Armenians are very proud of our hospitality as a people who have been displaced all over the world. Not by choice, of course, but by genocide. Whether you are Armenian or not, there’s always a seat at the table for everyone,” he added.

Alexis Ohanian has recently unveiled Shakmat, an Armenian brandy that he created in collaboration with Flaviar.

"The time has come for Armenian brandy to reclaim its rightful place on the World Spirits map. A hidden gem of flavor and tradition, its recognition is long overdue," he  said.

Shakmat (or shakhmat) is the Armenian word for chess.
