Dubai, 29 December 2016: Burj Al Arab Jumeirah joined forces with AmStur Caviar, the premiere US supplier of world-class caviar, to set the GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for the largest tin of caviar ever created. Hoda Khachab the official adjudicator from GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS confirmed that the guidelines were all adhered to and all requirements were met, setting the new title. The record took place at an elegant event held at Dubai’s most iconic hotel on 28th December.
The monumental tin, named “The Mashenomak” in honour of the “Great White Sturgeon” of Native American legend, was custom-made by AmStur for the occasion. It contained 17kg of deliciously flavourful, deep-grey Empress caviar, the world’s only fully certified organic caviar from native-raised sturgeon, which has been called “an organic culinary masterpiece.” Lucky guests had the opportunity to partake in the world’s largest serving of caviar using custom-engraved mother-of-pearl spoons, produced to commemorate the occasion. As part of the record-guidelines and GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS requirements, the entire portion of caviar had to be completely consumed, allowing guests to enjoy the luxurious tastes of the caviar.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with AmStur Caviar and delighted to share this incredible record breaking experience with our most valuable and loyal guests. At Burj Al Arab, we pride ourselves on extending to our guests unique and memorable experiences and we welcomed this opportunity to introduce them to AmStur – The World’s Finest caviar, which also I am pleased to add is environmentally friendly and sustainable, very much in line with Jumeirah Group’s philosophy” commented Doris Greif, Senior Vice President Operations – MEASA Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts.
“We were very proud to partner with the prestigious Burj Al Arab Jumeirah in this unique undertaking, and extremely excited to introduce our world-class caviar to the guests,” says AmStur Caviar Partner Nicholas Narsavidze. “AmStur’s native-raised, white sturgeon, caviar has been acclaimed by renowned chefs and discerning consumers throughout the world for its exquisite flavour and perfect texture. Our success demonstrates that culinary excellence and sustainable practices can go hand-in-hand, and we look forward to bringing AmStur caviar to everyone who not only appreciates fine quality, but cares about protecting the environment.”
