Top 10 drinks world records

The biggest bottle of wine

Biggest bottle of wine

In 2010 a group of Chinese winemakers set about creating a new world record for the biggest-ever bottle of wine. They came up with a 15ft high wine bottle, which holds a staggering 1,850 litres of wine.

The wine in the bottle was made by Wang Chen Wines in Liaoning, northern China. After setting the new world record a company spokesman said: “We are very proud, and the wine is very good. We have all had a glass from the bottle to celebrate.” The previous record was set by Austrian winemakers Kracher, whose bottle held 490 litres of wine.
