Butler/Butleresse – what is it all about?

You still recognize this in the word “Butler” which has been derived from the English word bottle and the French word bouteille. So in the European Middle Ages, the “Butler” was the bottle bearer. This position steadily developed into a kind position near the crown, a high rank in the household. The classic British Butler became the idol of excellence in this field and represented the overall loyal member of the household, being the unchallenged expert in the fields of etiquette, wine, food, glassware, literature and much more.

A respected person, sometimes even feared by his employer because the butler knew everything about him. While “the Butler” has been naturally male for a long time, the female version “Butleresse” has equal rights today.

Of course you should bring along certain attitudes, virtues and personal traits of character. Energy, passion and commitment are essential to take a new position as somebody who serves. Serving in this context is understood as a willingly decision not as a dull duty. Can you listen carefully? Can you anticipate needs in advance before they are uttered openly? Is it easy for you to be patient? These are some of the most important virtues. Then loyalty and discretion are indispensable – even in modern times.
