“The best alcohol shop in Brugge”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

What a wonderful woman who runs this store. She allowed us all the time in the world to taste all her beers and gins. Happily explaining us through them all, allowing us to go back and re taste things. We told her at the start that we wouldn't be buying anything today but she said the tasting came with 'no obligation'. Amazingly when we came back then next day to buy our friend a bottle of gin she had remembered which one she had liked the most.
Top tip: if you like chocolate and alcohol you simply have to try the chocolate gin. It is amazing!

“Wonderfully Friendly Store with Great Beer and Jenever”
Reviewed 29 September 2013

My girlfriend and I visited this store when we were in Bruges this past May. The woman who runs the store is very friendly and helpful, teaching me about the various jenever's she sold as she let me taste them. They were all excellent and I ended up buying a delicious reminder of the trip. We also bought some beer for our trip and a t-shirt for a friend. Then she recommended 't Poatersgat, a beer cellar around the corner, for refreshments before we caught the train back to Brussels. Next time we visit Belgium, we plan to visit again.
