The Guinness world record for the most expensive white wine was set by a single bottle of Chateau d'Yquem (1811), which was sold for £75,000 ($117,000) by The Antique Wine Company, London, UK.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the Most expensive wedding cake slice, set by a box containing a piece of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's 1937 wedding cake, which was sold at Sotheby's, New York, USA for $29,900 (£18,163) to Benjamin and Amanda Yin of San Francisco, USA.
The 'Fiore di Cristallo' kitchen, by leading designer Claudio Celiberti, took more than a year to craft from the pure crystal of Murano and the finest stone.
The world's most expensive kitchen was launched at an exclusive party co-hosted by Mr Zilli at One Mayfair in London.
The centrepiece is a unique 'crystal island' worth $58,750 illuminated by a $42,000 Swarovski chandelier.
The basin is also made from crystal and costs $4,200, while crystallized chrome-based Philip Starck taps are valued at $2,300.
The stone work top alone costs $10,900 and comes with a range of hand crafted German appliances from Gaggenau that weigh in $38,250.
The fridge alone is $7,960, while extras including a wine climate cabinet and an espresso coffee machine are $4,400 and $2,730 respectively.
Mr Celiberti said: 'As a visionary designer who is committed to perfection, I wanted to create a bespoke space that pushed boundaries, exemplified beauty and defined ultimate luxury.
'The end result is a kitchen that is not only functional but also a work of art with each cut, component and flourish being nothing short of perfection, even down to the finest detail.'
