Filu 'e ferru' or fil' 'e ferru – called in Italian Acquavite di Sardegna – is a marc brandy of Sardinian origins whose name, literally translated, means “barbed wire”. In some areas of Sardinia, particularly in Logudurese and in Barbagia, it is also called abbardente (or abba ardente), meaning “burnig water, which bursts into flames”.
Its name dates back to some centuries ago and derived from the method used to hide alembics, when marc brandy was illegally produced. Alembics and containers filled with distillates were firstly buried, then made retrievable by sticking a piece of barbed wire in the ground (sometimes more than one), where they had been hidden.
Marc brandy is produced by distilling only the finest grape marc, which provides a product with an alcoholic content sometimes higher than 40% ABV.
