Champagne Birthday was celebrated on August 6 in Balaklava. Spectators got a chance to participate in champagne tasting on the bay near the sea, view the beauty contest, exhibition of live figures, concert of a Ukrainian rock group, and setting world record for the Guiness Book of Records. A specially made glass that was 1.5 meters long was filled with champagne taken from 75 bottles. The previous record was hit twice.
The glass is put on a special platform and covered with cloth. One of the main conditions according to which it must repeat the outlines of a standard champagne glass is fulfilled.
The second condition stated affordability of the drink. In this case wine produced in 2009 was used.
This person arrived from England to fix the record.
Professional barmen put the bottles on special stands.
They check the integrity and wipe the bottles.
Two similar stands need to be filled to set the record.
