Distilled alcohol is gluten-free. If it says gluten-free but has alcohol, it is gluten-free.

Thank you, Is that the same assumption with vinegar as well? I have been avoiding any products with vinegar unless it says speceifically distilled vinegar. I assume if its listed as vinegar then it is made the wrong kind of vinegar? thanks so much

Vinegar, when you see just the single word, is distilled. The only vinegar to worry about is "malt vinegar" and it will be labeled as exactly that.

What about that article I saw saying that scientists won't claim gluten free on all distilled alcohol/vinegar because not all distillation processes eliminate gluten all of the time. Sorry I can't link you to it.. Maybe you've heard this or read about it?

The distillation process is said to remove the offending gluten to a safe level for Celiac to consume. There rarely is an assurance that anything is 100% gluten free.

Some sensitive people may react to distilled grain based alcohol and vinegars.

Actually if only the word vinegar is on the bottle it must by FDA regulation be apple cider vinegar. Distilled vinegar must say distilled before the word vinegar. Distilled vinegar can come from a gluten grain or a nongluten grain. Some of us will react to gluten grain vinegars even when distilled. I have had more than one nasty DH outbreak due to distilled gluten grains until I realized that lucky me I am one of those who react.
