At 45-liters, ZEUS is the world’s largest bottle of bubbly currently available
BURGUNDY, France, June 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Luc Belaire has created the World’s Largest Bottle of Bubbly*, dubbed “ZEUS,” after the supreme ruler of the Greek gods. At 45 liters (the equivalent of 60 standard bottles of Belaire), Belaire ZEUS is the largest bottle of bubbly currently available. Its colossal form stands at more than one meter (3.5 feet) in height and weighs 72.5kg (160 pounds when full, requiring the strength of three people to carry and pour!
Belaire ZEUS is a masterpiece of metalworking skill and creativity. The bottle was seven years in the making, crafted by aerospace engineers using a procedure never undertaken before: a process of spin forming, machining, internal coating, powder coating and pressure testing. Its steel form both insulates and protects the wine from extreme temperature and ensures Belaire ZEUS is nearly unbreakable!
Extremely limited in production, only two bottles of Belaire ZEUS have been produced. One is filled with Belaire’s signature Rare Rosé, a unique French sparkling wine which has become America’s No.1 Rosé**. The second contains Luc Belaire Luxe, our smash hit demi sec; both are vinted at our winery in the heart of Burgundy. Each bottle of Belaire ZEUS contains an extraordinary three billion bubbles!***
Belaire’s iconic bottles have, until now, been produced up to an impressive 15-liter size, known as a Nebuchadnezzar. The brand’s large format bottles have become the go-to for celebrities, influencers, recording artists and athletes across the globe to celebrate career milestones, album launches and championship wins.
With its towering form, ZEUS presents an extraordinary photo-op for fans – as such, both bottles will be undertaking a global tour! The tour will start in the U.S., where celebrities, creators and select fans will be invited to lift Belaire ZEUS via a bespoke pulley system, with a prize awarded to anyone strong enough to lift the massive bottle! You can expect to see Belaire ZEUS featured at events, sporting matches and in music videos. The tour’s first stop will be at the Luc Belaire office in Manhattan, New York, where friends and fans will have the opportunity to be photographed next to this titanic wine bottle.
