Lillet Blanc

Type

Wines used in mixed drinks

Also known as

Kina Lillet, white Lillet

Description

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.

Flavor

wine, herbal and orange

Availability

Generally available. Produced and sold in France.

Substitute

blonde Dubonnet or other white wine-based quinquina
