If you want to improve your wine knowledge this champagne bottle size and names glasscloth might be the perfect gift for you.  Keep it in the kitchen or bar and to remind yourself daily of the different size champagne bottles, their names and how much each contains.  We all know about standard bottles (75cl) and magnums, containing two standard bottles of champagne (1.5l).  However, many of us have never come across the larger sizes of champagne bottle.

Who are Champagne Bottles Named After?

The larger champagne bottle sizes have the names of Biblical Jewish kings and patriarchs.   A double magnum,  the Jeroboam, named after a King of Israel in 9th century BC,  contains 24 glasses of champagne.  Then comes the Methuselah containing 6 litres of champagne or 48 glasses.  Salmanazar was an Assyrian king living in the 9th century BC.  The Salmanazar bottle size contains 9 litres.  A Balthazar contains 12 litres or 96 glasses of champagne.  Balthazar was a Babylonian King and one of the three wise men who followed the Star of Bethlehem to the nativity.  Another Babylonian King, Nebuchadnezzar, lived in the 6th Century.  This enormous bottle contains 15 litres of champagne.  It is so enormous I am not sure how you would manage to pour any of the 120 glasses it contains.

Biblical Kings give names to these large bottles and we still don’t know why and don’t have any definitely answers.

However, we have found a few interesting theories the most common being that each name is completely appropriate for each bottle size.
