"Nebuchadnezzar" is a large unit of volume of champagne.

The Nebuchadnezzar is a 15 liter champagne bottle. (That's equivalent to 20 typical 750ml bottles!)

Also a name for a traditional game in which the host, possessed of a wide variety of flavoured or infused vodkas, leaves the room whilst the guests decide upon a word (such as "Nebuchadnezzar" for a difficult example) and pour a glass with a drop from each bottle of vodka whose flavour's initial corresponds to a letter in the word (such as nutmeg, elderberry, blueberry, unripe tomato, lemon, cherry, hyssop, apple, damson, zubrovka, raspberry) and the host, upon his or her return, would taste the concoction and attempt to decipher the word, by recognising the flavours therein.
