Georgia’s history of winemaking, which dates back thousands of years, literally predestined this country to be one of the top brandy producers. Georgia owes its world fame to a singular personality, David Sarajishvili. Having received his education in the French region of Charente, back in Georgia he founded a plant making the first Georgian brandy in 1884. By the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, this company had demonstrated notable success in all branches of industrial spirit making, especially thanks to its production of liqueurs, extracts, rums and brandies. David Sarajishvili is considered to be a founding father of brandy making not only in Georgia, but in the entire Russian empire of that time.
The company’s jewel in the crown is its Eniseli brandy, which has won 29 awards and received the gold medal 20 times. Sir Winston Churchill rated Eniseli brandy among the best tastings he ever had the pleasure of experiencing, exceeding even French cognacs.
