Brandy butter sent back cold (4)


I believe the answer is:


'brandy' is the definition.
(marc is a kind of brandy)

'butter sent back cold' is the wordplay.
'butter' becomes 'ram' (I've seen this before).
'sent back' is a reversal indicator.
'cold' becomes 'c' (eg on taps).
'ram' in reverse letter order is 'mar'.

(Other definitions for marc that I've seen before include "Sort of brandy made from the remains of pressed grapes" , "Type of brandy" , "Drink" , "A brandy; --- Chagall, artist" , "Chagall for one" .)

I've seen this clue in The Times.
