I thought this posted before, but apparently not...unless I didn't look hard enough.

Thank you for your inquiry concerning potential allergic reaction to

gluten in our cordial products.

Our cordials are made with distilled spirits that are primarily made

from a corn base. They may also from time to time, contain small

amounts of small grains such as wheat or rye. It is known that Gluten

can be found in the small grains such as rye, barley, oats, etc.

However, it is generally accepted that the process of distillation

excludes gluten in the finished product.

People with celiac disease may have a permanent intolerance to gluten.

Jim Beam Brands does not advise legal age adults whether or not to drink

this is a decision you may want to discuss with your physician if you

have questions. Your physician may be able to provide personalized

advice about this issue based on the ingredients and processes that go

into making our cordials.

Thank you for your inquiry about our products.

Sincerely,

Beth LaCaeyse

Customer Service Department

What do you think? Worth the risk?

This is the same thing as the question about whether distilling makes vinegar started from wheat gluten-free. Every thing I've seen said it does. I don't worry any more about vinegar (except malt vinegar) or distilled spirits.

I know the view on vinegar/alcohol is that the distilling process makes it "gluten free".  However, I react to it if it's not distilled from corn, rice or potatoes.  I know I'm in the minority but there those of us out there that the distillation process doesn't make it safe.
