Skyy Vodka

I can't seem to find what exactly SKYY Vodka is made from. The company website says it's distilled from grain, but WHAT grain? Wheat or corn?

Thanks, Momma Goose! :)

I've actually read through that before, and it's VERY interesting, in fact, it's sort of the reason I am curious. I went out last night, and today my insides feel absolutely horrible (aching, cramping, diarrhea.) I did not get horribly drunk, and this is not a hangover. I drank vodka, which is of course is gluten-free, but in that thread, I remember reading about people who had a reaction to alcohol distilled from grain, regardless of gluten content.

I'm just trying to figure out what would have caused such a bad reaction. It could be mixing brands of vodka. (We went to 4 places, and all 4 carried different brands of vodka, oy vey.) I drank Tito's, Smirnoff (which are both made from corn), Skyy, and Absolut. I don't think it was the Skyy, since I had that first and felt fine. I drank the Absolut last, and for some reason, I took a sip of it, and didn't want to drink it anymore.

Anyway, I'm just trying to find the culprit...

Has anyone had similar experiences?

Yes, there are some sensitive people here that do react to grain based distilled alcohol. Raven, where are you???

Don't know about Skyy, but Chopin Vodka is distilled from potatoes.

I'm not able to buy Chopin here (I live in a very small town right now) but was able to find Luksusowa, which is made from potatoes as well.

I checked the Skyy website, and while it was very glitzy, I couldn't find any real information. :(

did you have any flavored vodkas? sometimes flavorings added have gluten in them. and i remember reading somewhere that flavored absolut is bad for celiacs. but don't quote me, i'm not sure if that is 100% true, just an idea.

Nope, no flavorings. My only thought is the cranberry juice, though I don't know why it would contain gluten. (HFCS yes, yuckkkkkkk.)

Ugh- considering I have been glutened by OJ, nothing would surprise me but I know I stick with corn or potatoe vodkas (Smirnoff, Chopin). But another thought occurred to me- CC either in a glass that wasn't clean or a beverage nozzle. You figure with many different alcohols in a bar, it's a possibility?

Hope you feel better!

Skky Vodka is advertised as being gluten free, it's derived from Corn. It says so on their website..you just have to search a bit for it

Thanks modiddly 16!

I could find that it was distilled from Midwestern grain, but couldn't find if it was corn or wheat. Thanks for the info!

This is the 3rd day of me being sick from whatever I had on Friday, this is crazy.

Hello Momma Goose. Long time no speak. The potato Vodka is the best Vodka, but be careful they don't add anything back in. The industry has come up with so many flavors for hard liquer that you can't tell what they use to flavor it with. Distilling should kill the gluten protein, but if they add a glutenous substance back in then it defeats the purpose.

Raven's computer crashed big time, I am back now with my old comp but a virgin system.

I do react to the gluten grain distilled vodkas and also the grain distilled vinagers. It is not the norm though as most do tolerate. For me it is obviously a gluten reaction because it will cause a DH outbreak followed by the usual I got glutened symptoms.

What I do with any alcohol I question, or anything else for that matter is to challenge. I have some everyday for a week and watch for a reaction. Then if I have no reaction to the item it is added into my diet.

It would be hard to say if the reaction the OP is talking about is from the vodka or from CC issues. There is nothing wrong with being a loyal ______ drinker. Find one or two brands that you tolerate and then when you go out drink only those brands.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      "Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me" My sympathies that is just tragic, as this story is.  I hope you are at peace knowing you are aware of your celiac and help so many lost, scared, and confused celiacs here. It can never bring back your brother but I hope it can give soften some of what you feel that was/is beyond your control. His suffering and your loss has made you a better advocate to yourself and in your work helping us. I don't like my body or my  brain on gluten either. I do fear that people overlook the toll inflammation takes on the brain. It likely may explain decades of mental illness that was brain based inflammation unknown until changes in technology advancement catch up. However consuming gluten to study how one enters psychosis may not be the best method. Do no harm.  
    • Gardasil
      I got this vaccination in 2009 when I was 20 and it completely altered my life. Made my celiac disease so much worse, sleep 15-18 hours a day, SIBO, it has completely altered my life since getting this vaccination. My doctor has two twin girls about my age and they both have digestion problems after receiving gardasil
    • Gardasil And Celiac
      I have this same issue! I got gardasil in 2009 and have never been the same since. Celiac disease, thyroid problems. I used to be healthy and active and since I got that shot I have never been the same.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I saw this the other day too & like Karen, wondered at the last line of the article. The article had me once again thinking about my deceased brother who was dx'd paranoid schizophrenic in his late 20's. He also had alternating constipation/diarrhea  but "they" always blamed it on his meds for the schizophrenia. We, his family, knew he had those issues prior to him being prescribed the meds but there is no telling the medical community something when you're talking about a mental patient.  Okay, I know the guy is selling something but the research noted in the article is valid: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2013/06/22/gluten-grains-cause-schizophrenia.aspx We knew about this back in the 50's & going forward. They even coined the term for it "bread madness". Why have we not recognized this in the psychology/mental health/institutions community for all these many years? Why does it seem to have been just shoved under the rug like some dirty little secret?  Wondering what kind of life my brother could have had - if  he had celiac - constantly haunts me.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      My first thought was how many people that have been labeled as mentally ill or psychotic actually have Celiac Disease and never get diagnosed?  Their whole lives spent battling these conditions, being flooded with various meds and no one looks at their diet or does other testing!  It really is tragic.  I always wondered whether Patty Duke was an un-diagnosed Celiac.  She was finally diagnosed with bi-polar and ended up dying of a perforated intestine, at the young age of 69.  Ya gotta wonder........

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
