Adding to the Emirate of Dubai’s superlatives, Atlantis, The Palm teamed up with luxury US caviar company AmStur this New Years Eve to create the impossible and break the Guinness World Record for the worlds largest caviar tin. The 50kg serving of caviar was presented to guests at the resorts Gala Dinner and smashed the previous Guinness World Record for the worlds largest caviar tin, which was recorded in 2016, weighing in at 17kg.
The 50kg serving was presented to guests in a custom-made, diamond shaped caviar tin coined Cleito. The 98cm x 74cm tin was created using the finest R16 Stainless Steel and had special compartments to store frozen ice gel to ensure the appropriate temperature of the deliciously flavourful AmStur Premium Select caviar.
Alongside an official Guinness World Record adjudicator, who judged the attempt live from the New Years Eve Gala Dinner, over 5,000 lucky guests enjoyed taking part in this event, snapping pictures with the tin and consuming the entire 50kg amount over the course of the evening, using custom-engraved mother-of-pearl spoons, produced to commemorate the occasion.

BIG caviar is yucky.
Itsy bitsy teeny tiny caviar is almost palatable, and then, only as a garnish.
My HUMBLE opinion, based upon taste experience. Yours may vary.
“The 98cm x 74cm tin was created using the finest R16 Stainless Steel”
Technically not a tin, then.
I believe this stuff only recently became Halal — because rich people like tasty stuff, or showy stuff, and so — WHAM! — it’s Halal.
I used to eat black caviar sandwiches back in the day…
You should have seen the cracker!
