Hello all,

Vodka has always been my drink of choice when at a party. I know that some vodka is distilled with wheat so I avoid those kinds and have been drinking ones distilled with a corn base. But I have realized that I have a corn sensitivity so I'm thinking I should now avoid those kinds of vodkas. I heard there are vodkas distilled with potato? Is there anything else they distill it with. Do any of you guys have this problem and know what kind of vodkas I can drink?

PS. I am in Canada

Chopin Vodka is good. I never had a problem with any vodkas, but I switched to wine several years ago.

It's a bit expensive, but I like a French vodka that is distilled from grapes. It's called "C

i just have to think that the amount of gluten that could possibly get through that process has to be no more than you would get CC'd with just being alive assuming nothing is added later to it. I think a lot of people's issue with the hard liquor is that their gut is too tender for it. I could be wrong.

I agree. Many quality liquors are triple distilled. You just need to do your homework.

I agree with Chad and Lisa. Until your gut heals, it may just be too much. Most liquor is around 40% alcohol (80 proof), which is a strong concentration. A few rums (rum is never from grain) are as much as 75% alcohol.

I, myself, like the Twenty2 Vodka. It's made in Maine, actually in my hometown, and states right on their site that it's gluten-free. Check it out for yourself: twenty2vodka.com

I like Vikingfjord, potato vodka. When drinking I tend to prefer it as even red wine has too much sugar for me.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats of gastro in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from which looking back may have been related. Then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! I'm also still recovering from last Friday and wondering when I'm going to feel better. I've stayed off gluten and dairy since my blood result a couple of days ago but feel like I'm allergic to food in general.  Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
