Is Vodka Gluten Free??? I've heard it is grain derived and I just wanted to know if there are certain brands that are gluten free.
Thanks!

I am one of the ones who reacts strongly to any grain alcohol, (I black out after 1 drink and get very sick from grain alcohol). I drink Luksusowa Polish Potato Vodka and have NO problems. I can have 2 or 3 in an evening with no ill effects at all, not even a mild hangover. There are other potato vodkas around but this brand is the least costly.

It is gluten free. I drink ketel one- it is distilled in wheat but the distillation process leaves no gluten in the end product. Other vodkas are made from corn (i think smirnoff is one) or potatoes (like Chopin) and those are definitely safe too. But i have never had a problem w/ the wheat-distilled vodkas and i drink them frequently ( i mean when i drink).

I have, however, felt sick after drinking some of the well vodka drinks in bars...i am not sure if the distillation process is not as good in cheap vodka or if it is b/c instead of drinking vodka on the rocks, i mix cheaper vodkas w/ club soda. i have heard that fountain sodas in bars can be contaminated?

The fountain sodas are very suspect, also some states require bars to use a soak with a sani-tab in the final rinse, it is not washed off afterwards. I never read the label so I have no idea what is in it. I always make them rinse my glass with plain hot water before they mix my drink and if they don't have soda in a can I drink wine.

The soda spout never occured to me, either. I thought I was being careful when I'd just have a soda when out to "eat" with others. Jeesh :angry:

I also react to all grain alchol. I can find Chopin (potato vodka) in my town so that is what I drink with little to no problems. I even use it to make my own vanilla and Kaluha.

I cannot have anything from a bar tap...just enough stuff in there for contamination and I get sick every time.

Hi, could you please tell me how to make the Kaluha? I would love to try this, I seem to react to the real thing. I would love a White Russian.

I used to work in a bar and most places soak their bar guns in soap and water or bleach. The questionable things that come out of the bar gun are the juices, cranberry and orange, that is usually where i ran into the problem..However, if the bar or restaurant are "clean" then usually their soda gun is as well,
