The day is unique since we will make not only VODKA but also traditional Armenian delicious dish – DOLMA for lunch.

Day 4 (2)Vodka is one of the most popular alcoholic beverages in Armenia. So today we have an opportunity to make it by ourselves and enjoy home-made vodka’s real taste.  To create it we need to pass through some steps of preparation. At first we start creating a mash then get involved in the distillation, filtration and finally the dilution processes. While the vodka preparation is still in the process, we have another task to complete; that’s the Dolma-making. It’s a type of a meal consisting of stuffed vegetables. First we have to prepare the filling after start the stuffing the Dolma to stem up to form a sausage-like rolls. Depending on season, we can make different kind of Dolma with cabbage leaves, eggplants, tomatoes and peppers, as well.
