On the front page of this site there is a listing of this.

As far as vodka goes it depends on your friend's tolerence level of gluten. There is an opinion that all vodka is gluten-free as long as it is distilled as this process removes the gluten. Some celiacs that are very sensitive do not agree with this opinion and will not have it.

Your best bet would be to get Chopin potato vodka as it is not made from any grains.

I don't think I have ever came across a fruit juice that has gluten in it so orange juice and cranberry should be fine. I usually just have vodka and 7UP / Sprite.

Not sure where you are located but if you go to the website Redbrigebeer.com there is a way to look up liquor stores that carry it if you wanted to get a gluten-free beer. It is an Anheneur Busch product so it is pretty availble in liquor stores.

gluten-free beers that are less available are Bards and New Grist.

Other gluten-free Beers available in some areas:

St Peter's (not all are gluten-free so check)

Greene's

New Planet

Hard Ciders are gluten-free

A lot of the websites for liquor companies have a Facts area that will say "gluten free". Might check before heading to the store.

Do read the ingredients on the Bloody Mary Mix. Zing-Zang (a really tasty one) IS NOT SAFE.

I have no problem with any distilled liqour except sour mash bourbons, but I don't think that is caused by gluten.

Blue Ice is a highly rated vodka made in the USA from Idaho taters.

Luksusowa is a triple distilled Polish pototo vodka.

I'm sipping on a potato vodka/watermelon slush with a fresh basil leaf and a drizzle of cranberry juice. At the moment, I can't think of anything I'd rather be drinking.

Holy Moly, that sounds good. How do you make it? I have watermelons and fresh basil. Vodka is a staple in my house!

I have never had any problems with distilled spirits, and I'm fairly sensitive. I drink rye whiskey and Absolut vodka pretty regularly and do not get any of my usual gut reactions to gluten. Articles right here on Celiac.com say that distilled liquors do not contain gluten, as well as pretty much any book I've ever read on the subject.

I have however had a reaction to ingredients in flavoured mixers, particularly a margarita mix. I read the ingredients and it did not specifically say any of the usual suspects, but after drinking said margarita, I was doubled over in pain for the remainder of the evening! I can't remember what brand it was, but it was something that can typically be found in the drinks aisle of any grocery store. I stay clear of any of those now, and buy Baja Bob's mixes. All gluten free and sugar free, and very very tasty! Everything from margarita to whiskey sour mix! :D

There are quite a few gluten free beers on the market too thankfully. I like New Grist, it is the most available where I live (Whitby ON),but other brands will be available in other areas. Cidars are nice too, I like Strongbow, but it tends to give me hiccups. :blink:

I would stay away from Grey Goose - From Them:

Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding GREY GOOSE super-premium vodka. Please be advised that the alcohol used in processing the vodka contains 100% wheat grain. Therefore, GREY GOOSE vodka may contain trace amounts of gluten, because some of these ingredients are outsourced. The exact quantity is unknown.

If you still have questions, we suggest you contact your doctor as to whether or not you should consume such beverage products before consumption.

Sincerely,

Barbara Krupnick

Kettle 1's response:

Thank you for taking time to contact Ketel One. Your feedback is important to us.

In regard to your inquiry, please be advised that all pure (non-flavored) vodkas are considered to be gluten free due to their distillation process. However, we encourage you to contact your health care provider prior to the consumption of our products. We hope we were able to assist you with your inquiry.

Once again, thank you for contacting Ketel One.

Sincerely,

Meghann D.

The Ketel and Grey Goose answers sound like legalese "cover your a**" answers. I have used both with no reaction.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
