The ExciseMan does not enforce a dress code, but as a courtesy to our staff and other customers, your efforts to be attired in at least smart casual would be most appreciated. Thank You for your co-operation.
With our extensive range of Wines, Whiskies and Brandies, we again have led the industry with our initiative - 'The Comprehensive Beverage Dinners'. These private dinners are pre-arranged and held at our exclusive Private Dining Room called The ExciseMan Suite - set for 8 pax, perfect for an intimate gathering of business associates, family and friends.
On arrival, guests will be ushered to our elegant private living room where they can relax in comfortable Chesterfield sofas as they enjoy their aperitif. They then adjourn to the beautifully set candle-lit dining table for a sumptuous dinner, where each of the dishes will be matched with our recommended selection of white & red wines, spirit, dessert liqueur and digestive.
After dinner, guests will be invited back to the lounge for a nightcap of either a well-aged Port, Cognac, Armagnac or Whisky which then concludes the evening.
For small intimate business meetings which require utmost privacy, our smaller Business Room equipped with a working desk and TV screen is available for groups of 5 to 6 pax.

The ExciseMan Wine & Whisky Bar
Unique for a specialist bar, The ExciseMan is equally proficient in their range and expertise in wines & whiskies.
And it doesn’t stop there - The ExciseMan attracts like-minded folks, keen to discover and experience lesser-known beverages from all corners of the world without prejudice. As we are all on a learning curve, there is always something new to share with fellow enthusiasts. The ExciseMan is not guided by brands, age statements, points or awards, rarity or price.
Our bar is designed for those who prefer a quiet and comfortable setting with classic music from the 50's, 60's & 70's played at a convivial volume that allows conversation. In essence, it's a perfect place to catch up with friends and meet for business.
Because of its plush ambiance the bar has been used as a backdrop for several film sets as well as commercial photoshoots.
Initially set up by beverage industry veterans as a whisky bar, we are now proud to introduce our wide selection of wines covering international & regional varietals.
The ExciseMan also boasts an extensive range of spirits that include Cognac, Armagnac and other Brandies, Rums (both Agricole & Industrial), Grappa & Marc, Gin, Vodka, Tequila & Mezcal, Vermouth and Liqueurs.
We are NOT a cocktail bar per se but have been complimented for our Negroni and G&T, primarily because we use only top-grade ingredients and don’t compromise on portions.
Incidentally, our parent company is Le Vigne Wines & Spirts – importer, distributor and retailer since 2002 – that establishes our ethos of dedication to straightforward quality, not to brands or awards.
Behind the ExciseMan…
Patricia BRITTON entered the wine & spirits industry in 1995 with the Jardine Group (part of Bacardi-Martini), marketing the wine portfolio which included top houses Bollinger & Veuve Clicquot, Petaluma, Brown Brothers, Taylors Port & Mouton Rothschild. She then joined another wine & spirit giant, Pernod Ricard taking care of top names like Jacob’s Creek, Wyndham Estate, Champagne Pommery & Chateau D’issan.
Holding a General Certificate in Distilling from The Institute of Brewing and Distilling (UK), Lewis Mitchell conducts press and trade events on behalf of brands that have included Ardbeg, Glenmorangie, Royal Salute, The Glenlivet & Hennessy. Having served as a judge at the World Spirits competition, Lewis has also contributed articles on whiskies and other alcoholic beverages for several publications.
Both Patricia & Lewis are on a quest to learn and discover international beverages especially those that are lesser known - from exploring the vineyards of Yamanashi in Japan to visiting Rhum distilleries in Martinique. Their latest educational tour took them to historical Cognac, then to picturesque Gascony where they studied the full production process of both Cognac and Armagnacs and then plying the length & breadth of Bordeaux to visit the top houses.
Both Patricia & Lewis were inducted into the Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne in 2017.
