About the winery:
Brothers Raymond and Paul Lillet, liqueur makers and fine wine and spirits merchants, founded the Maison Lillet in Podensac, a small village south of Bordeaux, in 1872. It was in 1887 that they created Bordeaux’s first and truly unique aperitif: Lillet. In the 1920s and 30s, Lillet was served on very special occasions and at official receptions, soon becoming the aperitif in vogue worldwide. After World War II, the small family-run company decided to focus on exporting the brand to the US market. As a result, Lillet became the star drink of every trendy New York bar. The Lillet Blanc is their flagship product, made from white Bordeaux wine that is macerated with fruit.
