Lillet is a premium aperitif created in 1872 and prepared in the cellars of Podensac, a small village south of Bordeaux. Lillet is made from a subtle blend of wines and fruit infusions prepared by the Winery Master, using methods that have been passed down from generation to generation since the 19th century. XIX It is traditionally aged in oak barrels. It has a ruby color, with potent perfumes of fresh oranges, very ripe red fruits, with a solid structure in the mouth. Lillet is first an excellent aperitif wine: very cold, on ice, with a slice of orange, lemon or green lime. It is always served cold.
Campari is the result of the infusion of herbs, aromatic plants and fruits into alcohol and water, these last two being the only recipe of known ingredients. Many have simply imagined the number of ingredients: some say there are 20 or 60, but others say there are around 80 ingredients.
Carefully crafted to Martini's original 1872 recipe, this bitter aperitif makes up one third of what Martini have hailed as the 'perfect Negroni'. The other two ingredients are Bombay Sapphire Gin and Martini's Riserva Speciale Vermouth di Torino. Botanicals used to make Riserva Speciale Bitter include saffron, angostura and Columba, as well as Italian Artemisia - something which ensures it complements the flavour profile of Martini's vermouth.
The original liqueur was created in 1880 by Louis-Alexandre Marnier Lapostolle, a delicate blend of fine cognacs and distilled essence of tropical oranges with the secret touch of Marnier-Lapostolle. Bright topaz color with shades of gold and amber, complex aroma of orange blossoms combined with scents of crystallized zest and caramel. The bitter orange flavors are enhanced by cognac with nuances of orange marmalade and hazelnuts. The finish is long and harmonious.
Cointreau is an orange liqueur produced based on a careful selection of sweet and bitter orange peels, which give it a unique color and flavor. Composed only of 100% natural ingredients, this liquor continues to be distilled in Angers using traditional methods.
