Richard, this is on delphi:

Smirnoff Ice (diageo brands) (www.diageo.com) (02/02/05)
USA: Smirnoff Ice (any variety) is a malted beverage and NOT gluten-free.
CANADA, Smirnoff Ice (all varieties) is made with distilled vodka and is gluten-free

Is that a flavoured one? I'm not sure, I use just plain Smirnoff Vodka......

Karen-
The Ice ones are different than the flavored vodkas....if you go to their website you will see that the Ice ones are ones that look like beer bottles.
Thanks for checking up though =)

My understanding is that in the US the Shmirnoff (in beer bottle) Ice are not gluten-free, they are a malt beverage. However, in Canada they are made with vodka and are gluten-free.

I drink flavored Bacardi rum. I contacted the company nine months ago (I cannot find the response) and the rum and flavored rums are gluten-free.

Hez is right, the Ice in the US has malt, the one in Canada doesnt- go figure.
Im soo excited that the flavored ones are gluten-free, the rasberry flavor with sprite is great! :)

The US/Canada difference was discussed a year ago. Here's a link to Richard's explanation, which has to do with different tax and licensing laws in the two countries:
