Barristers in Great Britain are the high-caste lawyers.
The word "barrister" derivates from the English word “bar”, it is the barrier that separates the judge from the defendant. This is the highest rank of lawyer in Britain. Since the XV century, the prisoners could instruct "an educated and eloquent
friend" to protect their interests. The barristers had access to the "judicial bar", thus they could be heard by the court in the interests of their client.
The barrister's speech in court is precise and sharp as a blade.
They use to say in England about gin that it is “as cold as steel” - due to the strong cold aftertaste.
As Cold As Steel
When the name for the new brand was under discussion on Baker Street in London, the choice fell on “Barrister”, because it reflects best the meaning of the authentic gin AS COLD AS STEEL.
