Burj Al Arab Jumeirah and AmStur Caviar have canned themselves a Guinness World Record for creating the largest tin of caviar.

The record-breaking 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 17 kilograms of deep-grey Empress caviar, the world’s only fully certified organic caviar from native-raised sturgeon.

Guests at Dubai’s five-star Jumeirah property to witness the feat, were given 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 requirements, the entire tin of caviar had to be completely consumed.

“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,” says Doris Greif, Senior Vice President Operations for MEASA Jumeirah Hotels & Resorts. “At Burj Al Arab, we pride ourselves on extending to our guests unique and memorable experiences.”

AmStur Caviar partner Nicholas Narsavidze added: “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.”
