About Lillet Blanc Aperitif

Lillet Blanc is refreshing, light, aromatic, and distinct. Crisp like a quality white wine that's been chilled. Lillet's flavor contains notes of honey, flowers, passionfruit, subtle flowers, orange peel other citrus zests.

- Mix with bonded whiskey, Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao, and some Peychaud's Bitters in one of Anders Erickson's riffs on The Deshler cocktail
Lillet Blanc Aperitif is considered an aromatized wine. It's a blend of French Bordeaux wine and macerated liqueurs. The liqueurs are primarily citrus such including sweet orange peels from Spain and Morocco and bitter green orange peels from Haiti. The wine and liqueurs are stirred in Oak vats, and aged following the protocols of Bordeaux wines.
Lillet was created in the late 1800s and became quickly popular in France. In the early 1900s, the product was served to passengers on ships between Europe and America. Lillet gained traction in the United States partially due to its popularity among bartenders at the time. Lillet Blanc makes an appearance in pre-prohibition cocktails like the Corpse Reviver No. 2.
