The world’s largest caviar tin, weighed at 50kg, was unveiled at the Atlantis Palm Jumeirah on New Year’s Eve after it teamed up with luxury caviar firm AmStur to break the Guinness World Record.

It broke the 2016 record of 17kg, and was presented to guests at the resorts’ Gala Dinner in a custom-made, diamond shaped caviar tin measured at 98cm x 74cm tin.

An official Guinness World Record adjudicator judged the attempt live from the dinner, while over 5,000 guests took part in the event, consuming the entire amount over the course of the evening using custom-engraved mother-of-pearl spoons.

Serge Zaalof, chief operating officer for Atlantis Resorts & Residences, said, “We have thoroughly enjoyed this project we have embarked upon with our esteemed partner, AmStur Caviar and we are extremely proud to have achieved the impossible with the 50kg tin. Our New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner is a very special location in our city to welcome in the new year and we were thrilled to share this record breaking experience with our most valuable and loyal guests.”
