A nutritionist assured me years ago that Bombay Sapphire Gin is gluten-free, but now that I'm looking for confirmation I can't find any.

Anybody know?

All distilled alcohol is gluten-free unless gluten is added afterward. I would feel safe with the Bombay but do not have documentation showing it is gluten-free. You can go to bombaysapphire.com and there's a place there to see ingredients. There's also a contact link but it wasn't working when I was there.

Thes are gluten-free, according to the manufacturer. Booths is good.

I drink Bombay with zero problems and it's my favorite gin. Most hard alcohols are indeed gluten-free as Richard says, even if grain-based due to the distallation process unless they add a gluten-containing substance afterwards. :D

Hi...I love bombay sapphire and I'm newly diagnosed and still having issues with finding what is and isn't gluten free. What about the tonic that goes in the gin and tonic? Is that gluten free?

With regard to alcohol being gluten-free after distillation: After YEARS of knowing Richard, if he says something is gluten-free, it is. He also is EXPERT at providing links to sites available. He rocks!!

Here's a great site for gin knowledge:  http://www.gintime.com/brands/bombay-sapphire-gin/

 

Bombay Sapphire Gin IS gluten free, naturally.  See below:

 

So what is inside the bottle? Bombay Sapphire’s recipe is based on 10 botanicals. They include traditional gin botanicals such as juniper berries, citrus, angelica and orris root. To these are added coriander, liquorice, cassia bark, almonds, cubeb berries and West African grains of paradise. And, although it is a London Dry gin Bombay Sapphire is made differently to most other London Dry style gins. A triple distilled, 100% neutral grain spirit is first poured into still, at the end of the lyne pipe at the very top of the still is a set of copper baskets into which the botanicals are carefully layered. The spirit becomes vapour as heat is applied and, as it travels upwards through the baskets, it extracts the oils of the botanicals within. On its journey back through the condenser it becomes liquid again. In the normal way feints and foreshots are removed and the spirit, now Bombay Sapphire gin, is collected in the spirit receiver. It is reduced to 40% ABV (47%ABV in the US) using pure water and finally bottled.
