Vermouth - a wine with a distinctive wormwood tone and slightly bitter taste. The very term "Wermut" is defined as "common wormwood" (Lat. Artemisia absinthium) in an old Austrian herbal. By the way, the Latin name of this plant denominated another beverage - absinthe (wormwood whisky). First vermouth was made near Turin in 1786.

In my opinion the origins of the word 'vermouth' comes from a bas-saxon word which means
Warm (warm) et Wurz for Gewurz (spice), translated as a 'warm-spice'. A little bit of absinthe will warm your health, but alot will 'heat your head'. Afterwards, it became Wer (man) and Mod(courage),i.e. 'courageous man' or giving a man courage. I would like to openly discuss this with anyone who may have other opinions or information.
