Is Irish Bailey's gluten-free?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if Irish Bailey's is gluten-free? Alcohol drives me nuts because they don't have to label ingredients!! Of course I know to stay away from malt based beverages... but I sure do love my Bailey's in coffee!!

You really do have to be paranoid, don't you? But I guess if you end up finding something, you are not paranoid.

I happened upon this list once I started researching drinks, after hearing that two teas I liked contained gluten.

That list with all the gluten-free drinks is very helpful, however it doesn't list if Tequilla Rose or Baja Rosa are gluten free. Does anyone know? I always get Tequilla Rose as a shot when I go to the bar so I hope it's gluten-free.
