πŸ“œ History of Vermouth Day

The term “vermouth” has an intriguing history. It stems from the German translation of wormwood (‘wermut’), as the plant was a crucial element in the first recipe. Wormwood was frequently labeled as a forbidden substance throughout its history. Its formula has subsequently been changed, but the name has remained. The plant is still used in various well-known beverages, including absinthe and vermouth.

Historians trace the practice of infusing white wine fortified with medicinal substances such as wormwood back to 400 B.C. in ancient Greece. For many years, vermouth was a popular drink, particularly in Europe (Italy, France, and Germany). It was transformed into a medicinal whiskey and used to cure a variety of diseases. Some people thought that wormwood was good for you and could be used to treat stomach problems.

The creation of the cocktail in the 1800s resulted in an intriguing development for vermouth. Bartenders began to experiment with it when they realized its flexibility. The martini, a drink even more famous for its popularity in pop culture, may be the most well-known way it has been changed.

The drink’s medicinal applications would subsequently go out of favor, but its popularity remained unaffected. As its usage as an aperitif gained popularity, two varieties emerged. To compete with the sweet variation, a paler, dryer, sour variant was developed. Both styles have grown in popularity over time.
