The Guinness world record for the longest ice bar is a 63.70-m (209-ft) shooter bar carved by Team Ice Pro members Joe Rimer, Max Zuleta, Dawson List, James Ottens and Dominique Colell with the assistance of Ice Alaska, Jay Ulz and volunteers from the city of Fairbanks, Alaska (all USA).
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest spirit tasting; it was achieved by 2,252 participants in an event organised by Whisky Unlimited in Gent, Belgium.
More than 350 people lined up side by side holding some 600 feet of skis taped together with shot glasses lining the top.
Everyone has to lift the skis at the same time.
This event shattered the old world record set in Breckenridge, Colorado, where only 150 people took part.
"I'd say it's a big success, we were hoping for 315 feet and we ended up having 655 plus," said Stephanie Grutz, in charge of social media and marketing for the event.
The $2,000 raised will be donated to the Special Olympics.
