Hi i am wondering if anybody knows whether Pimm's alcohol is gluten free?? I am unable to find the ingredients or the way it is processed anywhere online, and was hoping somebody might know?

Thanks,

carmen

I don't have a problem with it, and I am super sensitive. I did email the company and they say it is gluten-free. I did find an approximate recipe online ( the real recipe is a secret). http://frolickingfoodie.blogspot.com/2008/05/pimms-oclock.html

Diagnosed June 2006 with adrenal insufficiency.

Diagnosed June 2006 as Gluten Intolerant after I failed the Challenge Diet. Negative blood test.No biopsy.

Diagnosed June 2006 as B12 low. Needed weekly injections for a year.Still have them every 2 weeks.

Trialled Dairy Free Diet and reacted positively to that challenge in January 07.

Or this home made version

two parts 40% gin

two parts red vermouth

one part orange Curacao

This makes the "Cheat's Pimms"

Then of course add either fizzy lemonade or ginger ale (usually about one of Pimms to three of mixer)

or

For one jug

Half inch cointreau

Two inches Martini Rosso

One inch Martini Bianco

One inch gin

One inch cava

One inch cider

One inch lemonade or appleade / sprite

Good splash Angostura bitters

Wedges of lime. orange and lemon (really, really fresh and zesty fruit makes a big difference)

Fresh sprigs of lemon balm (or mint)

cubes of cucumber

Ice

While were on this subject: Does anyone know if Grand Marnier is gluten-free? I went to the website & it sounds like it probably is but for the "secret ingredients". I emailed them but they have ignored me.
