Scottish Plan to Ban Glass Alcohol Containers Draws Outrage

Grown adults being treated like children


Plans to ban the pint glass from pubs throughout the Highlands of Scotland have sparked outrage.

The traditional vessel is already outlawed in nightclubs in the Highlands, which are forced to serve all drinks – including champagne, cocktails and the finest malt whiskies – in plastic containers after 9pm because of police fears over potential injury.

Now anyone enjoying a leisurely drink by the roaring fireside of even the remotest rural location could have to drink out of plastic because of the ruling.
