Lillet Blanc is a blend of wines made from Muscatelle, Sémillon, and Sauvignon Blanc grapes combined with Fruit Liqueurs which include a base of sweet oranges from Valencia in Spain, green oranges from Morocco and Tunisia, bitter oranges from Haiti and cinchona bark (quinine) from rainforest in the Peruvian Andes. It is aged a full year in oak casks. It is a dry aperitif that is pale straw in colour, with citrus tones and an herbal and lilac nose.
Lillet could be used as a delightful replacement of Vermouth in many Martinis, including the Vesper, a favourite literary classic Cocktail enjoyed by James Bond.
