Lillet is a subtle blend of rigorously selected wines from Bordeaux (85%) and of fruit liqueurs (15%) handcrafted on site. Lillet is aged in oak vats for several months, allowing the aromas to mellow and its characteristic taste to mature. Jean Lillet came from Saint-Morillon in Gironde and moved to Podensac, a small town near Sauternes in the Graves region, in 1680. His descendants Raymond and Paul Lillet, merchants of fine wines, liqueurs and spirits, founded Lillet in 1872. They created Bordeaux?s first and only aperitif, known as Kina Lillet until the 1970s when it became simply 'Lillet', a blend of Bordeaux wines and handcrafted fruit liqueurs produced in Podensac.
