Horrific alcohol reaction

Hi Steph:

I have had bad reactions to drinking inexpensively produced alcohol.  I believe the barrels that are used have traces of gluten.  I bought brandy and didn't realize on the label it says that Bourbon Barrels were used to age the brandy.  I just recently bought a Marsala to cook with.  In researching why it affected me so terribly, I read that some cooperages use wheat paste to seal the ends of barrels.  Live and learn.  



A lot of cheap stuff doesn't even use barrels.  An expensive one might use a barrel that had a wheat paste used to seal it.... But it shouldn't be inside the barrel.  If they go to the expense to do it the old fashioned way, they are very careful about the purity of tier product.
