Lillet is a subtle blend of rigorously selected wines from Bordeaux (85%) and of fruit liqueurs (15%) handcrafted on site. Lillet is aged in oak vats for several months, allowing the aromas to mellow and its characteristic taste to mature.
|Lillet is made since 1872 in Podensac, a small picturesque village south of Bordeaux. There, at the authentic “Maison Lillet” distillery, a dedicated team of fewer than ten people take care of Lillet production. All the ingredients for Lillet’s unique recipe are chosen with great care: French wines are selected for their quality and organoleptic complexity, while the fruits, cinchona barks, and sweet and bitter orange peels display remarkable freshness and aromatic richness. This masterful balance of rich fruit and superior wine is the result of almost 150 years of craftmanship.
