Lillet is a wine-based light and fresh aperitif, which results from the blend of carefully selected wines and fruit liqueurs, using methods that have been passed from generation to generation since the 19th century. In fact, Lillet (named Kina Lillet until 1970) was born in 1872 and is prepared in the cellars of Podensac, a small village in the south of Bordeaux, France. Its alcohol content is higher than the average of the wines and lower than drinks such as gin and vodka. The French chef Alain Ducasse and the former North American first lady Jacqueline Kennedy elected this as their favourite drink. It is available in three varieties-Blanc, Rosé and Rouge. With citrus and spicy features, a sweet texture and golden colour, Lillet Blanc is the perfect aperitif to be drunk on a terrace, on a hot summer day. Lillet is a Rosé aperitif ideal for fruity cocktails because of its unique flavour of red fruit, grapefruit and orange flower. Lillet Rouge presents a ruby colour, with powerful perfumes of fresh orange, ripe red fruit and with an intense, full-bodied and complex flavour. The three varieties should be served fresh. Lillet is distributed in Portugal by Pernod Ricard Portugal.
