HUDDERSFIELD pubs are raising their glasses in cheers to people who helped them with their world record attempt.
The Cherry Tree, at John William Street, and The Lord Wilson, at King Street, took part in the attempt to smash the Guinness World Record for the largest wine-tasting event.
The event, organised by pub chain Wetherspoons, saw drink fans taking a sip of a variety of wines at the same time. The event was held at all of the chain’s pubs up and down the country.
The Huddersfield pubs recorded 472 people tasting free samples of different varieties of reds, white and rosé wines.
Jamie Hanson, shift manager at The Cherry Tree, said the event was a great success.
He added: “We did really well. A lot of people turned out to support us and the atmosphere was really good.
“It’s the first time we’ve attempted to break the record and we’re confident that we’ve smashed it.
“We would like to thank everyone who came along and supported us.”
It will be announced next week if Wetherspoon’s has broken the world record.
