Lebanon claims record for world's biggest wine glass
London, Oct 31 (ANI): Lebanon has unveiled the world's biggest wine glass, smashing the previous record set in Portugal.
The giant vessel - measuring 1.51 metres in height and 1.46 metres at its widest point - can hold an incredible one hundred bottles.
It was unveiled at a wine festival in Beirut and officially declared a champion by Guinness World Records.
"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," Sky News quoted adjudicator Elizabeth Smith as saying.
Organisers of the event celebrated the 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 title from Portugal, who held the previous record 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. (ANI)
