I saw this prayer to the lord in heaven when he stayed in Ghent, not so long ago.
Free translation :
"Oh Lord
Our Lord, present in all the pubs of Ghent,
your miracle of turning water into genever will be praised.
Give us our daily genever, and my apologizes for the outstanding accounts.
Release me from the empty glasses."
Different flavours - and the best but most expensive you will find during the yearly "Gentsche Fieste" at the local stands - ask Danielle- she survived the genever tour.
