    Do you happen to know if Malibu coconut rum is gluten-free, or of any gluten-free coconut rum?? [ quote name='LqrMan' date='May 25 2005, 11:41 PM' post='43852'] Hey everyone! I graduated college 2 yrs ago, but didn't do much drinking because of the whole celiac thing. Now, I work for a wine and liquor distributor! What a coincidence right?! I have heard a lot of people saying that distilled liquors no matter the source are ok to drink. I still will not chance it though until I have proof that the wheat/barley is COMPLETELY eaten up by the yeast during fermentation. I really don't think it is, but I am going down to Jack Daniel's distillery in September so I will ask the hard questions there. Some things I learned while working for a liquor distributor: -Rums are probably all safe. Dark/Gold rums get their color (most always) from being aged in oak barrels. There are a few rums (Goslings-black rum) that is probably colored, but I did not have a problem with it. -Tequilas- I believe all tequilas are gluten-free. The cheaper tequilas are called mixto-Jose Cuervo/Pepe Lopez/etc (51% agave and 49% other spirits- usually sugar derived) so they are okay as well -Southern Comfort- One of the brands I represent. I asked some brand managers if it is gluten free and got a YES back from them. I have had it a few times since and I got a headache the first time i drank it (I usually do not get headaches). I will let you know officially because I also inquired about possible caramel color that is added. -Vodka-I stick to Ciroc(grapes), Luksosowa(potatoes), Teton Glacier(potatoes), Chopin(potatoes) if I drink vodka, wich is rare. -Triple Sec and Grenadine are gluten-free as well. So enjoy your margaritas and tequila sunrises! -Brandy/cognac/calvados/armagnac all gluten-free b/c made from grapes, same as wines Basically, I stay away from the liquors I know contain gluten in their mash b/c I am too paranoid of being contaminated (been gluten-free for 6 yrs) and so far so good. Any ?'s, just ask me and I can probably find out. Sorry for the long post. -Rob
  2. I think GM is a company that will disclose on the label if the flavorings are derived from gluten, but I sent them an e-mail just to check. Also, someone mentioned seeing oat in the ingredient listing for the Kaboom cereal, but I didn't read that. Perhaps I'm missing it? Did anyone else see oat int he ingredients?
  3. Pardon the silly question, however when the recipe says '1 1/4 cups of gluten free flour,' is there a specific gluten free flour that is recommended? And is it 1 1/4 cups of gluten-free flour in addition to the 'flours/starches'listed below the '1 1/4 cups gluten free flour? It sounds like a great recipe and I am always in the market for a new, tasty gluten-free bread-as well all are! Thanks!
  4. This is my first time posting so I hope I am doing it correctly. Anyhoo ... I noticed that you said that Ludens Cough Drops are gluten free. Do you remember how you contacted the company for this information? I have been the family's resource for gluten-free info and can generally find out anything, but haven't been able to find a contact number, website or e-mail for Luden's. When did you learn this info? Thanks. Kathleen
