Turks Come here

Hello, I had a question for Turks and I apologize in advance if this isn't the right place to ask it or if anyone gets offended. Anyways, I went to Turkey this past week (beautiful country btw) but could not ignore the insane amount of alcoholic beverage in every single shop at the airport. Do Turks normally drink a lot? I couldn't help wondering why I went into a perfume shop area at Istanbul Airport and there were more drinks there being sold than perfume bottles lol.

No because I went to the country and noticed something rather than just spamming the same pointless shit over and over again.

2020-01-21 10:27
There is no problem I was just curious if it was a cultural thing to drink a lot in Turkey or what.

2020-01-21 10:44
I had Doner Kebab, I really enjoyed it. Most of my trip was in Saudi tho, so i ate more Shawarma than Kebab because Turkish food in Saudi isn't that great from what I've heard.

A quote from wikipedia: "The consumption of alcohol is prohibited in the Islamic faith, but was practised widely in the ruling class of the Ottoman Empire. Murad IV (1612 - 1640) forbade drinking alcohol by law despite being a drinker himself. Turkey has been a secular country since its establishment in 1923, and the consumption of rakı in particular is a significant part of Turkey's food culture. However, today, 83% of adult Turks report being teetotal, and at 1.5 litres per head, alcohol consumption is the lowest in Europe." However alcohol consumption in cities like İstanbul, İzmir are way higher then the Central Anatolia

Yeah, I know Alcohol is prohibited in Islam, I just wondered why Turkey of all places sold so much. Thanks for the detailed answer
2020-01-21 12:28
It depends some people drink regulalry even though its expensive but some people not and some people never drink.When you go to east sites of the country there woman ussually never drink. Alcohol is reachable in turkey like in any other europian countries but it is expensive .Conservative government add a huge tax on alcholic beverages so this is the way they are punishing people who drink.
2020-01-21 10:55

Turkey Sodope 
20% of the population drink alcohol casually %30-40 drink rarely I guess. But people usually buy as much as they can afford at free shops cuz it's a lot cheaper than normal shops in Turkey

In western site of Turkey it is very common unlike central anatolia but you can find alchol every part of the Turkey easily.

Turkey Balbaros 
alcohol is common elsewhere in turkey but not that much. there are little shops that sell alcohol among other snacks etc called tekel, you can find tekels easily unless you're in a very conservative district. majority of supermarkets don't sell alcohol, but some do. there are also bars and clubs common in some parts of the cities. i am speaking for ankara, i don't know if istanbul is a different case but i'd assume they are similar

Nobody can say that sometimes we dont drink but most of the alcohol at airports is for tourists/connecting passengers since Turkey is a little bit cheaper than Europe.

Turks recount like alcohol is a good thing xD

A lot of turks drink but the government taxes the shit out of it so when you buy 1 drink you buy 2 for the government, reinforcing the culture that its drunk occasionally, its not meant to be an everyday beverage like in eu

this is not just like this in Istanbul.this is the case in most places in Konya, the so-called religious city.but this is not true for the east of the country(these are my observations)
