One of the oldest winemaking companies in the Republic of Moldova was founded in century XIX.
In the State Record Office there are documents certifying that the Company „Trade and Production Partnership N. L. Shustov & Sons” set up in 1898 in Chisinau a cognac plant. The complex was one of the biggest in Russia. Its headquarters were located in Moscow city, and it had subsidiaries in Erevan, Odessa, Smolensk etc. The opening of a subsidiary in Chisinau town was not accidental, since all the wine produced in Basarabia was stored here in that period.
The basic activity of the Industrial Complex was production of cognacs, which were competitive with the French ones. The factory was equipped with a modern device for the production of distillates with French system "MARSETE" from Cognac town in France. The product was kept in small barrels, and then transported by railway to Moscow where it was bottled.
The Company passed through many reorganizations and changed many names. Since 1959 it had been widely known as the Chisinau Wine and Cognac Combine. The present name appeared in 1983 as a result of the incorporation of the Production Union „AROMA”. After the dissolution of the Union, the Company retained that name and in January 2000 it was reorganized in the Joint Stock Company „AROMA”.
The Company is specialized on the production of strong drinks, predominantly on divin. The range of products under the trademark “AROMA” includes more than 30 items of divin. About 80% of the manufactured products are destined for export.
