Lebanon wins record for largest glass of wine

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.

    You Lebanese should be so proud of your recent Guiness records, it is astounding the amount of time and energy you devote to the non essentials. If only so much energy was devoted to your freedom and democracy.
