Ararat Brandy?

Before I order online, has anyone seen Ararat Brandy available in the Boston area? I know where I can buy it in NYC but I will not be there until September and would like get my hands on some before September.

  1. Gotta think Marty's Martignetti's, or one of the other bigs would have it. Also, if it is distributed in MA, and store can order it for you...

      Marty's definitely sold it in their Allston location (now closed), I assume they'd have it in the larger Newton store too.

        Saw some at Martignetti's on Soldier's Field Road a few days ago.

    2. well i did see some armenian brandy at Gordons. it came in a glass slipper sculpture and i took a picture with my lousy cellphone camera! so i bet they have the ararat.

          If you like that - check out this scimitar of Azerbaijani "konyaki" that some visiting Russian friends brought us.

      1. You guys are amazing, thank you.....I see Gordon's does sell it on thier website and I'll be in Watertown on Saturday. I'm not sure I'll go for the glass slipper but it might make a nice holiday gift for my sister though.

          Most liquor stores around here have it - regularly seen it at Gary's in West Roxbury. Also seen it at Russian joints with hard liquor, like international bazaar on beacon near summit ave.

        2. Try Vahe's liquors on Main Street in Watertown, west of Watertown Square. There is a liquor store in Framingham that sells it too, on Rt. 9 wb just east of the 126 intersection.

          Main Street Cafe
          85 Main St, Woonsocket, RI 02895

          1. Infomaniac, I was just wondering, where can I buy it in NYC? I've been looking online as well, but it would be so much easier to go someplace and buy it.

              Astor Wine & Spirts on Lafayette near East 4th Street is where I have bought it in the past. I'll be in NYC next week but don't know if I'll make it tthere to check it out for you. You should call before you visit to see if they have any.
