Bombay Sapphire Gin: Gf?

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.

    • Three years ago I lost about 40kgs (Aussie lol) by better diet & exercise. All was going great til I stopped losing. I upped my exercise but bizarrely started gaining weight. One night a week of not being able to sleep soon became two, then virtually every night with either 1-2hrs tops or none at all. These weird symptoms started about two years ago, becoming worse in say, the last 9mnths. Then I started to get diarrhea. Occasionally then weirdly 2-3 days with multiple occurences then a day or two with nothing, then back to loose & offensive. My GP ran tests, including the TTga (hope that's  right) antibody blood test. Negative so he tells me that's not it. After 9mnths of this he shrugs and says, "I don't know what it is I've run out of ideas what ideas do you have?" Finally refers me to a gastrointerogist.  Private, of course and can't really afford it but we (my fiance and I) go. Stools and blood samples are ordered, basically bye, see you in a month. I have looked my symptoms up and they seem to point to Celiac. Today we went back. I have been having bloated stomach, sore back and limbs,  lovely burps, constant urination and crushing anxiety attacks folowed by depression (which I have never had before in my life). Admitted over the last weekend I didn't sleep for two and a half days and found myself hallucinating and crying to just be able to sleep. Mr fancy pants gastrointerogist says," Hey great news, the stools samples rule out parasites and Crohns!" I tell him how excrutiating the last month has been to which he replies, "It's not Celiac disease, (points at negative blood test results). Celiac doesnt present with diarrhea, anxiety and frquent urination all together." I also had a fecal occult blood test which showed positive & notes say are maybe due to a lower gi bleed, and a ct scan that says shows some damage which, in their words, could be due to a condition such as Celiac disease. He has booked me for a double scope as the next step, has a few ideas what it could be (won't tell me because he doesn't want me to be 'anxious'). Told me to consider that all these symptoms could be me just worrying and being anxious. Told him when this started I was not worried about anything, shrugged and said, It could stil have happened, hey, sometimes we never find out what causes it and your just stuck with diarrhea forever." Then as I was leaving he slapped me on the back and said, "Don't worry so much, see you soon." I need to have the scopes done but is it me or are the things I was told today not true?  I would honestly love it not to be Celiac disease but could he be wrong?
    • Sigh. I totally do love the packs of stretch pants at Costco though...
    • hey, i'm vegetarian and gluten free as well
      have you tried making any recipes with cashew nuts like cashew cheese or pasta sauce? they're really good, easy to make and an excellent way to get more protein/iron
      i can send you some of the easy recipes if you like  
    • Right, fistulas or fissures are usually associated with Crohns, but not celiac.  It is not impossible to have both conditions though.
    • Bravo for being strong enough to bring this topic up.  Depression, anxiety, and other mental or neurological issues are common in celiacs and those with NCGI.  Science is finally catching up to what many of us have already known to be true.   http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3641836/ I have suffered from anxiety and still have some neuropathies.  At first I blamed menopause (that alone can make you crazy), but my symptoms tend kick in after a Gluten exposure and improve as I heal.   You are not crazy!  Gluten can cause so many problems.  What other disease requires that the patient be in charge of "medicating" and caring for themselves?  Most of us after a diagnosis get a "Well, just avoid gluten.  Lucky you that there are so many restaurants that offer a gluten free menu!", speech from our doctors.  We never get time off from thinking about food, our next meal and will it be safe?  Our relationship with food changes dramatically and it can be exhausting.   We do need more resources and support from medical, but for now, at least this forum is helpful!
