Lillet Blanc

Lillet is a French aperitif wine that has been produced since the late 19th century. Created in the Bordeaux region of France, Lillet is a blend of wine and citrus liqueurs. The exact recipe is a closely guarded secret, but it typically includes a mix of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc wines, along with fruit liqueurs crafted from oranges and other citrus fruits.

Lillet is available in different varieties, including Lillet Blanc, Lillet Rouge, and Lillet Rosé. Lillet Blanc, characterized by its pale golden color, is known for its fresh and floral notes. Lillet Rouge, with its reddish hue, offers a more robust and spiced profile. Lillet Rosé, introduced more recently, combines the elegance of Lillet Blanc with the fruity characteristics of red wine.

Lillet is often enjoyed on its own over ice, and it is also a key ingredient in classic cocktails like the Vesper and the Lillet Spritz. Its versatility and distinct flavor profile have contributed to its popularity as a stylish aperitif.
