The staff was very friendly and the drinks were awesome. I would truly recommend anyone going to Gent to go to the Dreupelkot as well! Very quaint little bar, and a great atmosphere. I’d highly recommend the jenevers with pomegranate, ginger, sour apple, and honey.

My partner and I stopped in along our lovely visit, and read we had to try their jenever shots. It didn't disappoint. With a huge list of flavours to test and taste, the older gentleman behind the bar was lovely and accompanying to help us...More

I am absolutely in love in that place. Very tasty Jenever - the drink that was invented before gin. For all gin lovers this is must. But be careful it taste so good you might get drunk quite fast ;)

Amazing to learn Gin founded in Ghent and not in London.. A cozy and friendly little bar that i strongly suggest all visitors to pay a visit when in Ghent.. Never fail to visit each time i am in Ghent... Love this city

A tiny barlike space smelling like sugar offers a sickening range of “jenever”-shots. From hazelnut to candy, from apple to liquorish. Great way to get the party started!

We visited here on Saturday and tasted lots of flavours. I highly recommend not trying the chilli one as my boyfriend and his friend discovered it’s VERY hot. The gentleman behind the bar did warn them and gave them a tiny taster and they actually...More

't Dreupelkot is famous for decades! And i'm sure you have never seen so many kinds of jenever together on a few square meters. Kind, welcoming barman, a mix of locals and tourists, characteristic building, beautiful location in the citycenter and a garantee for a...More

Great place to drink between the normal beer bars. About 40 flavours on offer, very friendly service, great atmosphere, cheap, and can drink outside by the canal. It's very central so you can keep going back!!

These kind of places are rare and is a real treat to visit. Very small place so it can be packed with people but don’t make that let you down. Squeeze in and enjoy the shots ’cause they’re great.
