Lillet was established in 1872 by the descendants of Jean Lillet, a native of Saint-Morillon in Gironde who later moved to Podensac, a small village in Graves near Sauternes. Raymond and Paul Lillet were merchants of fine wines, liquors, and spirits and they created the first and only aperitif from Bordeaux. In the 1920s and 30s, Lillet was served on very special occasions and at official receptions, soon becoming the aperitif in vogue all over the world. After the Second World War, the small family-run company decided to focus on exporting the brand to the US market. Lillet became the star drink of every trendy New York bar. The Lillet Blanc is their flagship product, made from white Bordeaux wine that is macerated with fruit. It is bright and fresh with a smooth and fruity aftertaste with aromas of candied oranges, honey, pine resin and exotic fruits. On the palate, it has a full, fleshy structure and a luxuriously long finish.
