It is generally accepted that any distilled liquor, even whisky, is gluten-free. I singled out whisky since it is made from grain mash, which often includes gluten grains. Bourbon whisky is often just corn. But I have not seen a warning from a credible source about gluten in whisky this century. I think the last one I saw was from about 1997, before current testing was able to show that there was no detectable gluten in the distillate.

If there were gluten in any distilled liquor, trust me, I'd be dead by now. Cheers!.

Chopin is my favorite gluten free vodka. Tito's and Krome are also very good gluten free vodkas.

Hi all! I'm new to the board. I've been living with Celiac for 6 years now, and follow the diet to a 't.' While I've become pretty comfortable with food (always open to new suggestions), I struggle to find alcohol. I primarily drink Hard Cider (Crispin, Magners, Angry Orchard, etc.) and Malibu rum. The problem is the high sugar content. I will have maybe 2 drinks and want to vomit from all the sugar (not the alcohol), or wake up with the worst hangover. Can anyone provide some good alcohol choices (by brand) that are Celiac friendly, and don't have an insane amount of sugar? I'm very sensitive, so I don't believe the triple distilled wheat based alcohols that people can be safe.
All help is appreciated, thanks!
Depending on where you live, you may be able to find Tito's Gluten Free Vodka, it's certified and delicious, not too expensive either.
