Organisers said winemakers from across the country had contributed their produce as part of a campaign to promote Lebanese wine - half of which they said is exported.

"This glass brings together all the wine producers [in Lebanon]," said Nada Farah.

The new world record set in the capitol city of Beirut broke the previous Guinness World Record set in Portugal 12 years ago; it measured 59.44 inches (1.51 metres) in height and 57.48 (1.46 metres) at its widest point.

Dozens of onlookers were on hand to witness the giant vessel being unveiled during a wine festival at the Hippodrome in Beirut.

An adjudicator of the Guinness Book of World Records confirmed that the plexiglass vessel measured 94.48 inches (2.40 metres) in height and 65 inches (1.65 metres) in diameter
- setting the new world record for the Largest glass of wine .

 The festival's organizers said the wine used in the record-breaking was contributed by Lebanese winemakers seeking to promote their product, half of which is exported.

 Lebanon can add its new record to the impressive list of Guinness World Records it already holds, including world's biggest serving of tabboulehand world's biggest bowl of hummus .
