Man breaks sabrage world record

A New Yorker has broken the world record for opening the most bottles of Champagne with a sabre in one minute.

Frank Esposito, a restaurant manager from Long Island, sabred 48 bottles of Champagne in one minute during the world record attempt on Wednesday, as reported by ABC News.

The previous record was held by Mirko Rainer of Switzerland who sabred 47 Champagne bottles in one minute in September 2014, according to the Guinness World Record’s website.

“Sabrage” is a technique used to open Champagne by holding the bottle at an angle and sliding a sabre (sword) up the neck enough to slice off the collar and cork. The method was particularly popular during the Napoleonic wars.
