What is not to like. So many gins. So little time. They are well priced €2.50 each. Mostly. And plenty to sample. They were on the sweet side but that didn't stop me. I would go back.

This place is superb. Genuine and historic - with great schnapps!! Highly recommended for a quick visit - if you can find space! Popular for good reason

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.

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
