Below is the response I promptly received from Skinnygirl regarding gluten in their products. I'm curious if what they say about distillation is correct and if these would be considered safe? Thanks.

The ingredients in Skinnygirl Margarita are not produced from cereals containing gluten and do not contain gluten.

The alcohol in Skinnygirl Sangria do not contain gluten. A portion of the other ingredients in this product were produced from cereals containing gluten that were added prior to distillation. Gluten can be found in small grains such as rye, barley, oats, wheat, etc. It is generally accepted that the process of distillation excludes gluten in the finished product.

The primary alcohol sources in Skinnygirl Cosmo, Bare Nakes, Cucumber, and Tangerine are produced from the fermentation and distillation of cereals containing gluten such as rye, barley, oats, wheat, etc.. Gluten can be found in small grains such as rye, barley, oats, wheat, etc. It is generally accepted that the process of distillation excludes gluten in the finished product.

Beam does not advise legal age adults whether to drink or not to drink; this is a decision you may want to discuss with your physician if you have any questions. Your physician may be able to provide personalized advice about this issue based on the information provided above.

Most celiacs are okay with distilled gluten grains. There are a very few, myself included, who don't tolerate them. I don't know which group you would fall in. You might want to try them out when you are for sure eating safe items to see if you react. If you are new to the diet your system may have a hard time with alcohol whether it is gluten free or not.
