Unique for a specialist bar, The ExciseMan is equally proficient in their range and expertise in wines and whiskies.
The ExciseMan is a wine and whisky bar where the adventurous come to explore and discover beverages they are not familiar with or aware of. We aspire to make recommendations that suit our customers' tastes, offering beverages regardless of brand, age statements, awards, rarity and price.
Our bar is designed for those who prefer a quiet and comfortable setting with classic music from the 1950s to 1970s played at a convivial volume that allows conversation. In essence, it's a perfect place to catch up with friends and meet for business.
Initially set up by beverage industry veterans as a whisky bar, we are now proud to introduce our wide selection of wines covering international and regional varietals over all major wine producing regions.
We carry a good selection of scotch malt whiskies and scotch blended whiskies. Other whiskies include American bourbon whiskey, American rye whiskey, Irish malt whiskey, Irish pot still whiskey, Japanese malt whisky, Japanese blended whisky, Indian malt whisky, Taiwanese malt whisky, as well as a selection of European whiskies. The bar also boasts an extensive range of other spirits that include brandy, cognac, armagnac, gin, vodka, tequila, grappa, vermouth, aperitif, liqueurs, rum and agricole rhum.
As we use only top-grade ingredients in our cocktails, we are well known for our negronis and gin-and-tonics. The ExciseMan is dedicated to straightforward quality, most of our wines and spirits are sourced via parent company Le Vigne—an import and retail establishment since 2002.
About The ExciseMan
Patricia Britton entered the wine and spirits industry in 1995 with the Jardine Group (part of Bacardi-Martini), marketing a wine portfolio that included top houses Bollinger & Veuve Clicquot, Petaluma, Brown Brothers, Taylors Port and Mouton Rothschild. She then joined Pernod Ricard, taking care of top names like Jacob’s Creek, Wyndham Estate, Champagne Pommery and Chateau D’issan.
Lewis Mitchell conducts press and trade events on behalf of brands such as Ardbeg, Glenmorangie, Royal Salute, The Glenlivet and Hennessy. Besides serving as a judge at the World Spirits Competition, he has also contributed articles on whiskies and other alcoholic beverages for several publications.
Both Britton and Mitchell are on a quest to learn and discover international beverages especially those that are lesser known. Their latest educational tour took them to historical Cognac, then to picturesque Gascony to study the full production processes of Cognac and Armagnacs. They were both inducted into Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne in 2017.
