History

Mechitharine was first mentioned in an Armenian manuscript dating back to 1680. Before mass commercialization, Mechitharine was produced by the monks in Modon, Greece from 1701 to 1715. Liquor production followed the path of the displaced Mechitarists monks; Mechitharine was produced in Venice (1717-1773) then in Trieste (1773-1810) and finally in Vienna since 1811.

Types

Mechitharine is available in six flavors with varying degrees of sweetness: "Edelsüß" (precious-sweet), "süß" (sweet), "Halbbitter" (half bitter), Bitter, Edelbitter and Cordiale.
