Abrikon is a strong alcoholic drink made of apricot. Only carefully selected and ripe apricots from Ararat Valley are used in the production of Abrikon. From the peeled and pitted fruit they extract juice, which is subjected to fermentation by means of special yeast. From the resulting mass they distill alcohol, which is then aged in oak barrels for several years. In the process of aging apricot tree barrels are also used.
During the blending alcohols from different barrels are selected, in order to obtain the required flavor and aroma. One of the indispensable components of the mixture is the use of the water coming from Armenian mountain sources. In the production of Abrikon no flavorings and additives (flavor, color, etc.) are used, present in almost all other alcoholic beverages. After blending the drink is "rests" in barrels for at least 6 months, which ensures the harmonization of alcohol and water.
