This first batch of Burnt Faith was made using eaux-de-vie distilled in France as it was released in March 2023, a month before the London distillery is due to start distilling). However it was aged, finished and blended by Burnt Faith.

Burnt Faith Batch 001 uses four grape varieties – Trebbiano, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Muscat Blanc. The distillate produced from these wines was matured/finished for 2-3 years in four different kinds of cask – ex-cherry liqueur cask from Ukraine (imparts cherry cola notes), ex-Pineau Charentes cask, a ex-French aperitif cask, and Spanish brandy and bourbon barrels. Some older 6-8 year-old brandies were also included in the blend.

The elegant Burnt Faith bottle was designed by creative agency, Contagious, and is topped by a regal purple glass stopper.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 11/04/2023


Clear, golden amber.


Vanilla fudge, caramel and bitter chocolate with digestive (sweet-meal) biscuit.


Buttery caramel, bitter toffee oak tannins, sweet strawberry jam and cola with cinnamon and cracked black pepper spice.


Caramel, milk chocolate and cinnamon. Faint cherry fruit.


Young and exuberant with a flavour profile more comparable to Spanish rather than French brandy. Woody caramel dominates vinous notes but Burnt Faith is pleasing to sip on and the shapely bottle is beautifully designed.
