Premium mixer brand Fever-Tree has opened its first airport bar and cafe, located airside at Edinburgh airport.
The venue was designed by Russell Sage Studio, and offers 51 seats “situated below and around a beautiful tree canopy”, with lighting and furnishings selected “to reflect the natural world that Fever-Tree has long worked with to source its ingredients for its mixers”.
The Fever-Tree Bar and Cafe is open daily between 0400 and 2300, and features a drinks menu pairing the brand’s range of mixers with spirits, as well as a selection of “beer, wine and bubbles”.
There is also a breakfast and small plates menu, with options including gin and whisky-cured smoked Scottish salmon and chorizo cooked in Fever-Tree’s Ginger Ale, and Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic marinated olives.
The group estimates that over 40,000 mixed drinks will be served to domestic and international travellers in the first year.
In 2018 Scottish-based Brewdog opened a branded bar at Edinburgh airport – also a first for the brand.
Commenting on the news Fever-Tree’s co-founder and CEO Tim Warrillow, said:
“Over a decade on from when we pioneered premium mixers, we continue to lead the way in elevating drinking experiences – this time at an international travel hub that is Edinburgh Airport, with our first-ever airport bar and café.
“We are looking forward to sharing more drinks with travellers from around the world as we embark on our journey to premiumise airport drinking and dining globally.”
