So I get this e-mail because I inquired about Ketel One vodka (I had heard somewhere it was gluten-free)

Does this make sense to anyone?? Here is the email:

Dear Laura,

Thank you for your support of Ketel One and for visiting our website.

The following ingredients apply to both Ketel One Vodka and Ketel One

Citroen:

- Approximately 64 calories in a 1 ounce serving

- No carbohydrates

- 100% wheat

GLUTEN IS IN WHEAT! :wacko:

What the heck?

I'm guessing that it is based on 100% wheat--and distilled. Distilled liquors are generally thought to be gluten-free, but there are people who will react to distilled liqior.

There are folks here who know much more about these things--feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. :D

You are quite right, and as many most likely know I am one of the people who do react.

I would suggest having one or two drinks three or four days in a row when not consuming anything else that is risky, and watching for a reaction. For those of us who do react to gluten grains they often have an overintoxicating effect and can give some really douzy of a hangover with very little injested so do take it easy though till you know.
