Here's a promo for this site. Under the safe and forbidden list section there is a list of alcohol that is safe for Celiacs with brand names and everything. I keep a copy in my cook book B) I do know that I can drink Peach schnapps and vodka without an issue and I love three-buck-Chuck from Trader Joe's. But who doesn't like wine that costs three dollars a bottle!!
Later.

I know this is probably a stupid question but can we have smirnoff or bacardi that has malt in it? I accidentally had some the other day and had no problems and i have been gluten-free for 9 years and usually the littlest thing sets me off. Just wondering....

The malt is made from barley and therefore is off limits. The gluten content is probably extremely small, but it's there.

Hey everyone!

I graduated college 2 yrs ago, but didn't do much drinking because of the whole celiac thing. Now, I work for a wine and liquor distributor! What a coincidence right?!

I have heard a lot of people saying that distilled liquors no matter the source are ok to drink. I still will not chance it though until I have proof that the wheat/barley is COMPLETELY eaten up by the yeast during fermentation. I really don't think it is, but I am going down to Jack Daniel's distillery in September so I will ask the hard questions there.

Some things I learned while working for a liquor distributor:
-Rums are probably all safe. Dark/Gold rums get their color (most always) from being aged in oak barrels. There are a few rums (Goslings-black rum) that is probably colored, but I did not have a problem with it.
-Tequilas- I believe all tequilas are gluten-free. The cheaper tequilas are called mixto-Jose Cuervo/Pepe Lopez/etc (51% agave and 49% other spirits- usually sugar derived) so they are okay as well
-Southern Comfort- One of the brands I represent. I asked some brand managers if it is gluten free and got a YES back from them. I have had it a few times since and I got a headache the first time i drank it (I usually do not get headaches). I will let you know officially because I also inquired about possible caramel color that is added.
-Vodka-I stick to Ciroc(grapes), Luksosowa(potatoes), Teton Glacier(potatoes), Chopin(potatoes) if I drink vodka, wich is rare.
-Triple Sec and Grenadine are gluten-free as well. So enjoy your margaritas and tequila sunrises!
-Brandy/cognac/calvados/armagnac all gluten-free b/c made from grapes, same as wines

Basically, I stay away from the liquors I know contain gluten in their mash b/c I am too paranoid of being contaminated (been gluten-free for 6 yrs) and so far so good.

Any ?'s, just ask me and I can probably find out. Sorry for the long post.

Distillation and fermentation are two different processes. Yeast is not involved in distillation. Distillation is a mechanical process where portions of a compound liquid, which have different vapor pressures, migrate through specially prepared tubes of equipment which are set to different temperatures. Only molecules of a particular vapor pressure (and hence, size) can make it through particular portions of the distillation apparatus. (Many chemistry labs in high school and college to distillation experiments, so if you have an old chem textbook, there may be a description in there.)

Thanks for the info Tiffany. You are correct about distillation, however, fermentation is the key to the production of alcohol. All alcoholic beverages must be fermented. After fermentation has taken place, then distillation is next.

Fermentation then distillation is correct but nobody is claiming all the gluten is "eaten up" during fermentation. It isn't. It's the distillation part of the process that removes the gluten NOT the fermentation. Beer is not gluten-free because it's not distilled.

I know many people with celiac who drink distilled liquor that has wheat, barley or rye.

At $3.25 a bottle, you Canadians are sure not to drink too much!

By the way, a little wine will actually help symptoms for me. I am a teetotaler other times, but when my belly hurts I will sip a little wine. It really helps...or maybe I just don't mind as much???

If any of you are in the Midwest, Lakefront Brewery makes a new gluten-free beer that's really good. It's called New Grist, and it's made from sorghum. The brewery is located in Milwaukee, but I've found the beer at a Chicago liquor store.
