Description:
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.

Review: Purchased in order to create Ian Flemmings iconic "Vesper" cocktail the drink itself, chilled, is a superb apperitif. The sweet fruity scent is pleasing. Combine it with 7up for a refreshing long drink.

Review: A sweet apperitif/wine with peach and apricot flavours and a honey finish. Delicious chilled and an essential ingredient of the Vesper (see Ian Flemming's "Casino Royale").
