The Sardinian grappa Fil‘e Ferru is a local grappa whose name means “iron wire”.
The name comes from the method used to hide the containers of the spirit underground, when it was clandestinely produced.
In order to identify their exact position, they put an iron wire on the ground to help them.
To produce the Sardinian grappa Fil‘e Ferru the marc of some selected Sardinian vine varieties are distilled (the top quality is obtained from the distillation of the marc of Vernaccia) which originate a product with alcohol more than 40° by volume.
In some areas, especially in Logudoro and Barbagia, the Fil ‘e Ferry is also called “abbardente” (or “ abba ardente”) which means “burning water, on fire, very strong” because of the high amount of alcohol.
