It is my understanding that all whiskey has gluten in it.

It is generally accepted that distilled alcohol (and vinegar) does not contain gluten, regardless of the original souce. The distillation process removes any gluten because the large gluten molecule is too big to pass into the distillate.

In the US, "vinegar" when described by that single word, is both distilled and derived from a non-gluten source, so it is not something to worry about. In Canada, the source may vary, but it is distilled.

Some people react to grain alcohol, despite the distillation. We know that some fragments of the peptide do survive in the distillate, and that some people react. Most celiacs do not have a problem with grain alcohol, but you may be in the minority that do.
