I am going to make mint juleps tommorrow and was looking for a Bourbon Whiskey. Anyone have one they use? I know Dana lists them as being safe in her new book...but I still have to check on brands. E-mailed a few but haven't heard yet. Thanks! :P

I don't drink bourbon, but I've cooked with Jim Beam with excellent results.

I've heard good things about Evan Williams and Wild Turkey, as well.

My personal favorites are

Booker's

or

Basil Hayden

They are both premium boubons and have a smoother taste than Jim Beam (not that there is anything wrong with Beam)...

I forgot to mention, I'm in the south. Premium bourbons are for pansies :P

Just kidding. :)

HI

I am not a drinker per say....but i do love my 'Calvert's Extra' I have looked and looked on web sites and can't find if's it's gluten-free. I have seen on sites that Segrams is gluten-free. now what about irish Mist? Don't know if this will help jenvan as i don't know the difference between whisky, burbon, but think that my blended burbon is milder and might not be what she needs/

Richard any help here?

thank

(Judy HI!)

I don't know much about whiskeys...the recipes I found for juleps called for bourbon whiskey...that's all I know. :) I tried to do a little reading...but didn't learn much :huh: If anyone has more info, I would love to hear it!

Like I said, I used to love scotch...and would love to "replace" it with something. I wondered about Brandy, but didn't know where to start there...

All bourbon is whiskey, but all whiskey is not bourbon.

They are all aged in Oak barrels, but bourbon is aged in barrells that have been charred first. Bourbon must also be made from a certain percentage of corn in the mash. Over 50% I think. Most of it comes from Kentucky.

Whiskey, I believe, is made more from rye than corn. Jack Daniels is whiskey, not bourbon.

Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, and Evan Williams is all definitely bourbon, and not using good Kentucky bourbon in a mint julep would be a sacrelige. Especially close to derby time ;)

Derby time...That's right--aren't you a "southerner?" :D

Oh and duh--just looked back up top of thread, where you say you are a southerner... oops :blink:

Jack Daniels. They say right on their website that they're gluten-free! Nothing like a good Jack and Coke! How's that for a ladylike drink? :lol: It was a happy day when I found out that my favorite alcoholic beverage was also gluten-free!

Apparently the distilllation process removes the gluten. I was happy to find out that Jack Daniels was gluten-free, but have not yet been brave enough to try it again.

Yes, if its a distilled alcohol it should be safe...but apparently there is a chance a manufacturer could add something in post-distilling containing gluten? Hence...I check before I drink.

Maker's was good--smooth... Enjoyed it!

Today is my lucky day. I have been gluten free since March. I gave up my favorites Burbuon & Ginger. I never thought to check their website.

Thanks, made my day.

    • If you hear an ice cream truck playing morbid music, grab your money and run!  They sell roasted sweet potatoes from a truck.  Live on those.   They are delicious. Eat them as you would eat a candy bar.  It's just sweet potato.  Maybe 300-500 yen for a big one.  They are sold by weight.  served hot and ready.  I have purchased enough for a few days at a time and eaten them cold after refrigeration and loved them as well.  300 Yen per potato so plan accordingly incase  you hear that truck.
    • I have been to amusement parks & stadiums that don't really have gluten-free except ice cream, chips, that sort of stuff.  And, when called or emailed in advance, I am given a note to bring my own food.& eat outside with my family.  But that is different than a restaurant that is not allowed to have outside food in. From what I have seen, this family didn't handle the whole situation well.  If they had brought a small discrete lunch in, waited until the others had their food, then pull it out and not made a big fuss, they probably would have been fine.  I have also been told that this tavern does do a safe gluten-free meal.... 
    • So sorry it is difficult.  There is soy sauce (made with wheat) and fish flavoring in everything!   I too have neurological damage from 40 years of gluten.  I can feel your pain.  Do you want me to look for a base contact for you?   I still have a connection at my Okinawa church which is near Camp Foster.
    • I find it amusing I brought this up to point out that discrimination is not something that should happen to those of us with this disease and if handled well we can compromise by bringing our own food where allowed and calling and contacting places prior to going explaining and setting things up. In this way we do not end up feeling out of place and can try to live a more normal life with social interactions and gatherings if all is handled well. I am unsure if this goal was met or blown out of the water . One point I think this applies also and has for me so far it seems, is theme parks. Places like Six Flags where your stuck in their grounds, and they can not guarantee food safety. I found that with my celiac diagnoses I can talk to them and be allowed to bring my own food into the park. This not only allows me to head out and eat but also saves me a ton of money >.< as expensive as gluten-free food is theme park food is like another 3x that. They just put a medical sticker on my cooler and I store it in a locker in the park and go back to it for snacks and food. Odd thing from years past.....I have a life time member ship to Six Flags, But I can not go unless someone else is with me for when I get anemic, or sick so I go once a year if even that (not gone this year or last year). My other option is to book a hotel near by or sleep in my car. (I get deathly tired at night and pass out around 9pm). There is also the lines I have to buy a flash pass to skip the lines, or I have panic attacks being unable to move for hours waiting for a ride.  
    • I lived in Okinawa for 4 years prior to diagnosis.  My son however tried to go gluten free during that time.  His school had no idea what I was trying to say and could do nothing for him.  Everyone eats school lunch. Period.  It was difficult.  If I went back I would eat the percooked hard boiled eggs from Lawson's or your nearest convenient store.  You may feel more comfortable rinsing them before eating them.  I would also eat the plain rice onigri.  If you know the contents of the mayo you could eat mayo/fish onigri. Stay away from the ones that use soy sauce.  Maybe look at tins of fish while you are there to see if they contain soy sauce. The other idea is to connect you with someone on a base.  They have great American grocery stores with lots of options and American doctors and hospital.  They deal with American insurance companies.  I looked into that for my father in law who came to visit while terminal.  He had postal insurance and was 100% covered in Okinawa on base.  Do you have military connections there?   Camp Foster or Kadena grocery stores are the big ones with the best selection.  The others may be too small for your needs.
