Our review:

In the worthy pursuit of responsible drinking I must stress that when enjoying a Kopstoot you should repeatedly take a sip from each glass – savour the combination rather than shooting the genever in one gulp.


The traditional Dutch way to drink genever, Kopstoot (pronounced ‘Cop-Stout’) translates as ‘a blow for your head’.
