You will like to know that…

Lillet Blanc 75cl is produced in a small distillery in Podensac, a small village in Gironde, southern France. This vermouth is the first creation of the company and dates back to the 19th century (the red, rosé and Reserve versions appeared later). This makes Lillet Blanc 75cl the oldest aperitif from Bordeaux! With its sweet and floral flavour, it quickly conquered the heart of the consumers even across the Atlantic! It is a great base for a Mojito, a Fizz or even on the rocks!

- A great buy: Lillet (pronounced lee-lay), is a French Aperitif made from a blend of wine, liqueurs, fruits and herbs. It originated in the French village of Podensac and has been made since the late 1800s. Lillet Blanc is made from white wine and is drier than Lillet Rouge, its red-wine counterpart. Both are classically served over ice with an orange twist.
- Lillet is a blend of rigorously selected wines and fruit liqueurs, aged in oak vats for around 12 months, during which it is given the same care as the Grands Crus (great wines) of Bordeaux.
- Lillet Blanc has a golden colour with candied orange, honey, pine resin, lime and fresh mint aromas. Full and rich on the palate with a lovely, long aftertaste. Always serve well chilled in a Bordeaux wine glass... zest with a slice of orange or lime. Perfect with snacks and desserts!
- Lillet blanc is the key ingredient in James Bond's Martini derivative, the Vesper, a drink created in deference to the beautiful double agent in Ian Fleming's Casino Royale and reffered to as Kina Lillet.

5 /5

Having been introduced to Lillet by a bar tender in Bordeaux we were blow away by the fresh citrusy taste and refreshing and uplifting drink. We subsequently went on to experience the wonderful flavour if this and the 'red' variant in many beautiful locations around Bordeaux. Fond memories and a wonderful drink we now share with friends and family.
