Alcohol takes off in Starbucks

COFFEE shop chain Starbucks has opened its first Scottish outlet to sell beer and wine.

Starbucks Evenings launched in Edinburgh Airport last week, offering tapas-style dishes as well as a range of premium wines and beers. The outlet will open from 4am to 11pm, with the Starbucks Evenings offer available from 4pm. It follows the launch of Starbucks Evenings at Stansted Airport earlier this year.
