    Cocchi Americano is a fabulous replacement for the original Kina Lillet.

    There is still quinine in Lillet. The recipe of Lillet contains less sugar than the Kina Lillet one. to To counterbalance, there is less quinine. But this is false to pretend there is no more quinine in Lillet. And of course, you still can recreate the James Bond favorite Vesper with Lillet.

    The original "Kina Lillet" although not technically a Vermouth was somewhat dry due due to the incorporation of the bark of the cinchona tree, which contains quinine. The modern formulation "Lillet Blanc" was invented for "modern" palates i.e. young drinkers and the quinine has been left out. So if you were hoping to recreate James Bond's "Vesper" cocktail you're out of luck - Kina Lillet is no longer sold.

    The word vermouth comes from the German word for "wormwood", a bitter herb sometimes used to treat upset stomachs, and an essential ingredient for Vermouths made by Martini and Noilly Prat, in fact it is the wormwood which imparts the "dryness" in any dry martini.

    Sorry, but WHY EXACTLY is this not a vermouth? What are the rules? Is this an aromatised wine, and if so, why is it not a vermouth?? Thx, Jimbo

    85% wine 15 % liquor (this is NOT vermouth)

    RE: Vermouth - I've never thought of Lillet as a vermouth, but the label on my bottle says "blended with herbs and fruits". So, unless there is another criteria besides being fortified and blended with herbs/spices I guess it would correctly be considered a vermouth.BTW- My favorite Vesper is 3oz Dry Fly Gin, 1oz Dry Fly Vodka, splash of Lillet and 3 drops Fee Bros Citrus bitters. Enjoy!

    2 drops angustura bitters, splash of Lillet, 1 oz Chase Vodka, 3oz Crown Jewel Gin = the best Vesper imaginable

  • 15 April 2010

    they are both fortified wines, but vermouths are blended with herbs and spices ( like KFC).

    Absolutely delicious on its own chilled or a must have ingredient for my favourite cocktail, the 'Vesper'.A must have for any drinks enthusiast.
