This is the Bailey's Irish Cream statement regarding gluten, this makes me assume it isn't gluten free...correct???:


Gluten: Please be advised that the whiskey used in Baileys is manufactured by fermenting grain, which contains gluten. Due to the presence of gluten in the whiskey components before distillation we cannot absolutely guarantee that there are no effects to coeliacs. As we are not qualified to give medical advice persons requiring a gluten-free diet must consult their medical adviser before consuming Baileys.

I have yet to try Bailey's. I read the same thing on their website. I do know of some celiacs who drink it with no problems. I am not saying it is gluten-free just that some do not have problems. Does anyone drink it? Anyone have a problem?

As I said on another thread, I think the statement on their web site is just a CYA statement. Whiskey is made from grains which contain gluten, but it is generally accepted by experts that the distillate is gluten free. Having said that, thare are a few people who have reported problems with distilled spirits, or distilled vinegar. But most thinking is that the risk from distilled spirits is an urban myth. I have no adverse effects from Baileys, nor from scotch whiskey. Beer is another story, but it is NOT distilled.

Just because something is not on a particular gluten-free list does not necessarily mean it contains gluten.

I had some New Year's Eve in some coffee (to try and make it to Midnight). I don't know if it bothered me or not as I have only been gluten-free for about 3 months. I read their disclaimer, and decided I thought it was safe since the only issue could be the grain alcohol. If it is 100% safe or not, I don't know.....but for me, I have decided for now that it is.

Oh wow, I thought I read that it WAS gluten-free! I took a cruise over New Years and I drank it often after dinner and I will say I didn't have any problems.... hmmm. I usually have gluten reactions within an hour and they are obvious... stomach pain, the runs, gas... I didn't have any of that. Oh well, maybe I lucked out but I find it hard to believe its loaded with gluten.

Karen, thanks so much for posting this. I am one of the unlucky ones who does react, strongly, to gluten grain alcohols, whether distilled or not. I have ended up afraid to drink anything except potato vodka and woodchuck cider. I am going out this morning to get some ouzo and amaretto, my absolute favorites before diagnosis. I am sooo looking forward to an after dinner coffe with ouzo in it, or a small glass of golden almond goodness by my fireplace. Your efforts are appretiated greatly.

Having said that, thare are a few people who have reported problems with distilled spirits, or distilled vinegar.


Whenever I see a liquor that contains a lot of flavorings, colors and sweeteners, like wine coolers or Irish Cream, I automatically think, there has to be some gluten in there. (Sometimes I feel like the gluten-free version of that creepy guy in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang who is all, "I smell children!") If I don't have one of those lists handy, I just stick to one of the vodka brands I never have problems with. But if Bailey's is saying that Whiskey is the only questionable ingredient, it's probably gluten-free since the distillation process generally removes gluten.

Having said that, I HAVE had some notable problems with distilled grain alcohol. I went over to a friend's house for "drinks" and it turned out that by "drinks" he meant "beers." So I asked if he had anything else. He found a dusty bottle of Georgi Vodka (what is this? high school?) and made me a vodka & soda. The next day I was sick. I'm thinking that the cheaper brands (ie comes in a plastic bottle) of distilled spirits aren't always distilled that carefully. I've had other grain-based vodkas and never had a problem.

If Bailey's is something you always enjoyed, it might be worth doing an experiment to see how it affects you. I'm thinking there's little risk since the whiskey they make it with is probably high end.

I seem to have trouble with all grain alcohols as well.. and wierdly, even Chopin, which is potato vodka. But, oddly.. Bailey's is one of the very few things I"m ok with, and I can't figure out why! No other brand though.. there is an immediate and bad reaction to other brands. I'm terribly reactive to corn products too.. same affect as Gluten.

Everyone seems to have their info. at the bottom, and I don't know how to do that. I was diagnosed 15 years ago by elimination diet, and it was then (after 4 months of Gluten free diet) that I had my first two hours of my entire life without severe stomach pain. I lived my entire first 24 years of life wearing sixe 10 pants when I was a size 1 because my stomach was constantly swollen the same sixe as a 7 month or so pregnant woman and I was doubled over constantly. I grew up this way so I had no idea it wasn't normal. My intestines still don't work on their own so I have to take all kinds of horable herbals (since no doctors or meds have ever helped.. not even the ones that work for everyone else) but if there is any gluten or corn anywhere in my diet the medicines fail to work and I"m doubled over with a non-working digestive system again for usually about 6 months of really bad effects. I'm constantly learning about more things hiding in my diet, esp. with the corn products, so I don't think I've ever been entirely gluten/corn free enough to be healed all the way. But, the more clean my diet is the markedly better I am. Anyway.. there's all kinds of of endometriosis and other stuff they've diagnosed, just like the rest of you, but whatever. Right now they are suspecting also auto immune (runs in family) with some muscle nerve effects that started occuring about 10 yrs ago and got markedly more noticeable over the last few years.. but I do wonder if years worth of intestinal damage and malnourishment could be responsible for the muscle issues.. and surely the exhaustion! ... And other allergies keep popping up.. like now a bad reaction to any form of sugar. Yuck. Anyway.. I feel for everyone out there, and if anyone knows about these muscle/nerve issues let me know! (muscles just suddenly not working at times.. like loss of communication betw. brain and nerves. Much difficulty with stairs, or walking up hill started about a year ago.)

The first time I read this, all I could think of was reading the label on a tub of ice cream: We do not put any ground beef in our ice cream. However, since we do not TEST for ground beef, we cannot say our ice cream is vegetarian.

CYA much?

Anyway, I didn't see Southern Comfort on the list, but I was on the website recently and they list it as gluten-free ... thank God. B)
