The Canny Man If you take a street poll on the various brands of whisky sold in Hong Kong, it is more than likely the respondents will name the mass market ones. While there is nothing wrong with that, these people probably do not know there is a whole world of other brands waiting to be sampled. In the past, it was not always easy to find a place to enjoy a glass of 16-year-old Lagavulin. But since August last year, that has changed. You can now visit The Canny Man in the basement of the Wharney Guang Dong Hotel (57-73 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai). With a selection of 200 malts and a cosy environment, The Canny Man is the perfect hangout for whisky lovers. It also has 40 imported ales and 30 choices of great wine. Sign up for The Canny Man Malt Whisky Club and it will source any bottle of whisky for you from anywhere in the world - at cost price. The membership also entitles you to a complimentary bottle of malt whisky, a private box for storage, and a quarterly newsletter on whisky and distilleries. The Canny Man is an ideal venue for a get-together with friends, small functions, wedding parties and even business events. It has snug booths, an intimate lounge and a pool table.
