Edinburgh Airport toasts arrival of new Fever-Tree bar
Premium mixer brand puts down roots in the capital.
Edinburgh Airport is toasting the arrival of Fever-Tree's new bar and cafe which could be just the tonic for passengers seeking a pre-flight refreshment.
The 51-seater bar, which features an eye-catching 'tree canopy', is the latest addition to our comprehensive food and beverage offering at EDI. The brand expects to serve up more than 40,000 mixed drinks to domestic and international passengers in their first year after putting down roots at the airport.
The carefully designed drinks menu has been assembled to showcase the very best long mixed drinks - pairing Fever-Tree's award-winning mixers with selected spirits, sticking to their mantra - “if ¾ of your drink is the mixer, mix with the best”. They've also got a selection of beer, wine and bubbles on offer.
Passengers seeking a bite to eat can browse their breakfast and small plates menu where items are paired with a long-mixed drink. The options include gin and whisky-cured smoked Scottish salmon and chorizo cooked in Fever-Tree’s award-winning Ginger Ale, as well as Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic marinated olives - the ultimate bar snack.
Fever-Tree worked with renowned designers Russell Sage Studio to create the bar, with lighting and furnishings specially selected to create a relaxing and sophisticated atmosphere which brings nature into the venue.
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport says: "Build back better they say. When our retailers had to close due to the pandemic, we focused on doing just that - and what's better than welcoming new partners and new concepts to the airport to deliver a fantastic passenger experience? Adding Fever-Tree is the perfect tonic. Exciting? Of course. Better? Of course!"
Every Fever-Tree mixer served at the bar is carbon neutral, as part of its commitment to work with nature, not against it.
And Fever-Tree’s co-founder and CEO Tim Warrillow says: “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.”
The Fever-Tree Bar and Café will be open daily at Edinburgh Airport from 4am-11pm.
