Lillet Blanc


Wines used in mixed drinks

Also known as

Kina Lillet, white Lillet


Proprietary and revered French quinquina in less-sweet (blanc) and sweet (rouge) varieties. Note that a recipe that specifies "Lillet" without also specifying "rouge" or "sweet" always intends Lillet Blanc which, for many years was their sole version. Perhaps attempting to enter Dubonnet's market, they produced a red Lillet which has never sold as well, either in America or abroad.


wine, herbal and orange


Generally available. Produced and sold in France.


blonde Dubonnet or other white wine-based quinquina
