Top 10 drinks world records

6th February, 2013 by Andy Young

The biggest Champagne glass

The world's biggest Champagne glassSo you’ve bought yourself a 30 litre Midas bottle of Armand be Brignac, now what are going to pour it into? This glass could be the answer.

The glass was created in Blakalava, Ukraine, stands 1.34m tall and was created by ART Glass. Part of its official certification as a Guinness World Record involved the glass actually holding wine as well. Zolotaia Balka winery from Ukraine bottled a special edition demi-sec for the record attempt and 75 bottles (75cl), were successfully poured into the glass.
