Lillet is an aperitif made from wines (85%) and fruit liqueurs (15%). To make the liqueurs, the peel of various citrus fruits (oranges from southern Spain, bitter orange from Haiti, green oranges from Morocco and Tunisia) and cinchona bark from Peru are soaked in alcohol for several months. Lillet is aged in traditional oak barrels. In 1987, the recipe of Lillet Blanc and in 1990 the composition of Lillet Rouge were adapted to contemporary tastes in collaboration with the Oenological Institute of the University of Bordeaux: now it no longer tastes sweet and bitter, but light and fruity. Lillet is available in three variations: white, rosé and red.
