I just had two of them and I felt fine*. I believe they are distilled so it should be safe enough.

*UPDATE: Actually I'm not so sure I felt fine... sometimes it's hard to tell.



Have been Gluten Free for 2 weeks. Went out last night and had 2 mikes. Big mistake....... Nasty headaches(migraine, not hangover), nasty stomache problems too. :( Same issues as before I went gluten free. I didn't even think about it having gluten. I will never do that again. In just 2 weeks of being gluten free I have noticed a drastic difference in IBS, headaches and other issues I have had. Actually have a 8 year old, 40 lbs son that has been diagnosed as asthmatic, anemic and failure to thrive. Been referred o an endocrinologist, but think he might have celiacs. Also have a 13 year old autistic son and a 6 year old daughter that is lactose intolerant, but still having stomache issues(neg. for celiacs-blood test).

you can make your own with fresh lemonade and vodka, much tastier but not just a grab and drink drink. Always more prep for us

Potato vodka will clearly say potato vodka on the label. There are some really good ones out there and they are usually top shelf brands. Not all of us have to avoid distilled gluten but I am someone who does.

Corn is common. Smirnoff, as just one example, is made from corn.

When I go out, I stick with rum and Coke or, depending on the bar, a whiskey 7. None of the bars around here serve gluten-free beer and Woodchuck is too sweet for me. Hard liquor is easy because if you have one or two favorite brands you're guaranteed to find at least one at every bar/restaurant.

I believe I saw a Mike's "Lite" hard lemonade at the store. I didn't see any malts listed as the ingredients and believe it is gluten free. It's also only like 2% alchohol so I opted for good ol' Redbridge instead.

OK this is new to me. I was always under the impression in Canada it was gluten-free but in the US it was not. Now there is that statement from the company about the processing removing the gluten. This is causing great concern about this product since it is made from malt which is normally a no no.
I guess this will be left to the individual as we all know there are some you partake in distilled hard stuff and there are some that won't.

I still drink vodka and other stuff so I think personally I will give it a try.

This is also similar to that new Spanish beer that is claiming to have gluten but lower than the legal linit amount.

I used to love these--drank them in the summer all the time and couldn't figure out why I had the worst stomach issues afterward.....

I consider them on my "not safe" list.

Different people have different tolerance levels. Being 'below the legal limit' doesn't mean it is safe for all. We have to keep in mind that the legal limit can change, it used to be 200ppm now it is 20ppm and for some of us that is still too high. Also in some countries what is in these products differ. In the US for example wine coolers are malt based beverages but that is not the case in all.

I loved these things but I don't think I will chance it.

Perhaps some nice lemonade with some soda water and a splash of vodka?

Well, I had a few last night. I am feeling a little off but no major bouts of issues. I brought a 6 pack. Maybe I will have the other 3 over the weekend. If I feel "off" again I probably will look at this as a failed experiment.

Malt is not safe. I don't think the distillation process of a malt beverage changes the fact that it is malt. Granted, malt isn't one of the items that triggers a HUGE reaction in me...for the first year of my diagnosis I was still eating Rice Krispies because my then doctor told me they were gluten free (mind you this was 7 years ago) but I honestly think its foolish to risk it when its very clearly stated that celiac disease and a gluten free diet means to avoid wheat, rye, barely and malt.

Just my two or three cents!

One problem with liquor - any liquor - is that it often falls into the category of 'processed in a facility that also processes wheat.' If a company is making any alcohol out of a gluten grain, distilled or not, then gluten is in the facility. That ups the cc risks.

Also, one of the big issues with barley malt is that the test for gluten is less accurate with barley gluten.
