Marc is a brandy-like drink produced in Burgundy from the residue left over after the grapes have been pressed for wine making. The spirit is distilled from the debris left over; grape skins, seeds and stalks which are mashed together and pressed to extract a fiery raw liquid similar to Italian grappa. Aged in oak barrels, it resembles Irish poitin, the high alcohol drink made from potatoes. Marc de Bourgogne is a smoother version which the Burgundians use to cook the local sausage before serving with boiled potatoes, a rustic and genuinely delightful dish that exhibits none of the rugged qualities of raw marc.
