Lebanon has claimed the record for the world’s biggest wine glass, which can hold an incredible one hundred bottles.
The giant vessel was unveiled at a wine festival in Beirut and officially declared a champion by Guinness Book of World Records.
Measuring 1.51 metres in height and 1.46 metres at its widest point, it holds enough to give anyone a hangover.
Elizabeth Smith, Guinness Book of World Records adjudicator, confirmed the record saying: “I’m here from London and I’m very proud to announce that Vinifest and Eventions, and Lebanon have created a new Guinness world record for the largest wine glass.”
Organisers of the event celebrated the world record by filling the glass with a mixture of local red, white and rose.
Producers from across the country had donated their produce as part of a bid to promote Lebanese wine.
The new wine glass snatches the world record from Portugal, who held the previous title for 12 years.
Lebanon has been on a drive to celebrate its culinary expertise recently, also producing the world’s biggest bowl of hummus and the biggest servings of Kibbeh and Tabbouleh.
