Lillet Rose is created from a blend of the red and white Grand Cru Bordeaux wine varietals used to produce Lillet Blanc and Lillet Rouge.

The combination consists of Semillon grapes for structure and a long finish, Sauvignon Blanc for fruitiness and aroma, and Muscatel for a floral bouquet.

The wine is then married with artisanal orange liqueurs crafted from sweet orange peels from Spain and bitter orange peels from Haiti, and a proprietary blend of fruit liqueurs sourced near and produced in Lillet's distillery in Podensac, a village in southwestern France.

A small amount of Peruvian quinine is added to the final blend. Its rose colour and taste profile are achieved by adding additional red fruit liqueurs and a very small amount of Lillet Rouge, using a traditional Champagne blending method to ensure a consistent colour throughout.

The result is a lush, fruity, elegant tonic wine with the taste of ripe summer berries, wildflowers, melon and stone fruit, as well as the traditional sweet and bitter citrus notes.
