For more than a century, Lillet has been introducing consumers to the apéritif– a refreshing, light drink that’s perfect any time of day. Since 1872 Lillet has been produced in French wine country, south of Bordeaux in Podensac.

Lillet is a subtle blend of rigorously selected wines and fruit macerations crafted on-site in Podensac, sweet oranges from Turkey, Spain, or Morocco, bitter oranges from Haiti, and quinine from South America. The taste is light and refreshing, with hints of honey, candied oranges and tropical fruit.

As a French wine-based apéritif, Lillet brings a fruity smoothness to every occasion. Light, refreshing and effortless, The Lillet Spritz is an instant, not-too-boozy classic for outdoor entertaining and springtime brunches.
