On 31st December 2014 Frank Esposito, General Manager of Long Island’s restaurant Coral House, has set the new Champagne Sabering World’s Record by opening 48 bottles with a sword in one minute.

When asked about the reason for this record, Esposito replied: “Why not? It’s New Year’s Eve.” Esposito is now waiting for Guinness to call the record official.  

The previous record was 47 bottles by Swiss Sommelier Mirko Rainer on 6th September 2014.
