The Butler title originally applied to the person who had charge of the wine cellar and dispensed liquors, the name being derived from old French bouteillier, "bottle bearer."
In the European Middle Ages it meant precisely this; bottle bearer, but in time it came to mean an official of the crown, who nominally had charge of the wine. When hearing the word 'Butler' we think of Great Britain. Although manservants have been employed all over the world as long as one cares to remember, it was the British Butler who transformed this profession into a form of art and thus became the standard in this field.
A British Butler was authoritative, witty, snobbish, discreet and intelligent.
Jeeves more than lives up to the Butler heritage and tradition…..
