Courtney - 25
Columbia, SC

Gluten-free since July 8, 2006
Casein-free since October 16, 2006
Went six weeks, and fell back into a deliciously painful world of cheese.
Casein-free (again and for serious this time) December 11, 2006
Stupid cheese addiction....2/07

Dx Hypothyroid in 1993
Dx Gluten & Casein Sensitive through Enterolab 10/06
Dx Adrenal *Exhaustion* 2/07




Originally from WI, I am still in denial over my newfound casein intolerance. I fear I will not be allowed back into the state if I can no longer eat cheese and drink milk. This could pose some trouble over holidays when I wish to visit my family. It also poses a problem involving the severe rage I feel when I have to throw away somebody's unfinished cheese sticks. That is so wrong.

It's funny, beer was the first thing to make me sick. It has made me sick since high school- way before other gluten stuff did.

I generally drink cider when I'm at a pub. I like wine- if you have a Trader Joe's you can find lots of good cheap wines. The sulfites in red wines bother me, but it isn't gluten.

I also drink a lot of rum and tequila drinks, but watch out for stuff like margarita mix. I don't trust that stuff. Distilled liquor is generally ok, but for some reason vodka also makes me really sick.

I'm checking right now on a cider called "Original Sin" that's really tasty. It's made in NY, but they have it here in Boston (Cambridge especially) as well as Michigan and a few others.

I'll update this when I get an answer.

In terms of vodka, my doc said any vodkas are fine, since they're all distilled. So, while the potato vodkas are super tasty, they're expensive, and all the cheap folk out there like myself will appreciate being able to buy Smirnoff (or the crap in the plastic bottles, if they so desire)!

Will update,
Sally

Yay, it is safe! "thanks for the e-mail. O.Sin is gluten-free. we use only apples and
champagne yeast - no artificial flavors or colors. we do add sulfites
and sorbate to stabilize the product. we do need to add the info to
our site."

I stick to tequilla, rum, wine and gluten-free beer. Vodka does not sit well with me (prolly non gluten related). When I hang out at the bar, I am also slightly concerned about CC ( All of the used glasses and steins are washed in the same soapy water ).

What drinks/mixers are off limits, other than obviously most beers. I have not heard of any mixed drink that celiacs should stay away from...

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?!


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.

DO you know anything about the flavored Rums?? I used to drink some coconut rum...Perhaps, malibu is gluten-free do you know?? I have not had any alcohol for over 7 months, thinking I might like to have one some warm summer evening!

Thanks in advance

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.

It is generally accepted in North America that caramel color is safe. Mostly it is derived from corn, but even if it isn't, the processing involved eliminates any gluten from the final product. I said "generally accepted," and I fully expect Steve Lord (gfp) to jump in here and disagree. Steve and I agree to disagree on the safety of some things.

Most experts now believe that distillation removes gluten. Again, Steve disagrees with all those experts.

Draw you own conclusion. I don't worry about caramel color, and I consider distilled alcohol and vinegar to be safe regardless of origin. Your mileage may vary :lol: .
