Lillet

Lillet (pronunciation: ‘Lee-Lay’) is an award-winning wine-based aperitif.

Created in 1872 in the wine cellars of Podensac, a sleepy village in the south of Bordeaux.

Today Lillet is best enjoyed as a spritz, and the Lillet Rosé Spritz is the prettiest cocktail you’ll see this summer.

Lillet is a staple of sidewalk cafés and early evening cocktail parties in France and beyond.

A subtle blend of rigorously selected wines and fruit infusions, Lillet is still crafted on site in Podensac using methods passed down since the nineteenth century.

Lillet is an aperitif that is less than half the ABV of gin or vodka at 17%.

An essential ingredient in all the best cocktail cabinets across the world, Lillet continues to enjoy its rising popularity as a low alcohol drink.

Paddy Irish Whiskey

In the whiskey that bears his name, the legendary spirit of Patrick J. O’Flaherty lives on today, worldwide. He was Paddy, to his friends, and they were legion. A kindly, generous and beloved fellow, Paddy traveled pub-to-pub across Ireland, selling Cork Distilleries Map of Ireland Whiskey and giving out rounds of free drinks along the way, for more than four decades, but the legend (and the whiskey) became a favorite well beyond Ireland. Before long, international patrons and publicans alike were clamouring for more “Paddy,” so the whiskey’s name was changed to honour the man himself, as global demand increased. Paddy’s namesake whiskey, triple distilled and aged in the oaken casks of County Cork, Ireland, was always light, balanced and pure. A smooth, accessible whiskey for nearly a quarter millennium, it remains just so today, wherever you enjoy it.
