World record for the largest bottle of whisky has been set in Crieff, Scotland a few days ago. The Famous Grouse as Scotland’s favourite whisky earned that flattering title by unveiling its 228-litre bottle of whisky on the ceremony of celebrating brand’s 107th birthday.
The bottle which stands at an impressive five feet five inches tall has been specially commissioned from Czech glass manufacturers BOMMA, as the only glass producer able to fulfill such an enormous request, and has travelled more than 1,200 miles from Svetla, near Prague. It holds the equivalent of 9,120 drams of whisky, and took three hours to be filled with help from a number of VIP guests and fans who attended the party.
Glen Gribbon, Director of The Famous Grouse, commented: “We have been gearing towards this momentous day for a long time and it’s been extremely nerve-wracking for all involved. We are so thrilled to bring this record to the home of Scotch whisky and are relieved that it’s now official – we have the biggest bottle of whisky in the world!
“The bottle will now be displayed at The Famous Grouse Experience so fans can visit and see the bottle for themselves.”
The previous Guinness world record for the largest bottle of whisky has been set last year by Jack Daniel’s 184-litre bottle.
