Seeking to brush off its political troubles and burnish its reputation for good living, Lebanon claimed a record for the world’s biggest glass of wine.

Organizers of a wine festival in Beirut poured around one hundred bottles of Lebanese wine into the giant glass, 2.4 meters high and 1.65 meters wide.

“The previous record was set in Portugal 12 years ago, and I’m proud to announce that Lebanon has achieved a new record,” Guinness World Records adjudicator Liz Smith told Reuters Television at the festival Friday evening.
