It's distilled so it should be fine......but it did contain gluten at some point. I drink it with no problem.

Thanks Donald & Alanda!

After reading how it was made on their website I got a little worried. I don't eat or drink anything unless I'm absolutely sure it's gluten free.

Thanks again! :)

There are lots of folks that do tolerate distilled gluten but some do not. I am one who doesn't. I couldn't drink it. If you really wanted to know whether you could handle it you could drink some daily for a week and watch for a reaction. I wouldn't do this unless you are really well healed though.

My bf was drinking Scotch and bourbon, and I got glutened from kissing him. I've had similar gluten reactions with Irish Cream, which is supposed to have the gluten distilled out. I don't chance it anymore.

Wow! Thanks Ravenwood glass & Wolicki!

I didn't realize I would have to worry about distilled liquor. I haven't had any yet, just a glass of wine. And I know I'm not healed all the way either so I will definitely stay away from it. It's not too hard, but I do love my wine. Do I have to check all the wine I drink too? Or is all wine gluten free? :huh:

Thanks you all for the warnings... This is depressing...

Ok, this might be controversial, but I had an issue with a Chardonnay a few months back. I can't remember now if it is Chilean or Argentinian wine, but they use some kind of wheat in the cork/cover. I think if you search this site you can find the info. That's the only issue I've ever had, and I do like me some wine too :D

Actually, I watched an episode of Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe, and he was making the wooden barrels they make wine in. They DO put a caulking in the rim that has wheat in the paste. At least that manufacturer does. Sorry, don't remember the name. I guess you just have to pick a wine brand you like and ask them how their barrels are made. Sucks, huh? Woodchuck is gluten-free!

Thanks for the heads-up Wolicki & JNBunnie!

I can't believe it! I'm even more depressed. I really thought wine was like milk... one of the few things we didn't have to call on. I guess I'll have to start making my phone calls... I use wine a lot in my recipes. ;)

It's ok, just call your favorite wineries, and stick to those brands. I've found that most are ok :D

    • remind your hubby, "if mama ain't happy, ain't nobody gonna be happy."
    • Thank you for all your help with this.  I was also wondering if I could ask and hope you don't mind, will they be able to tell Celiac on the camera or will it be down to the biopsies they take? My endoscopy is on the 9th, and I am worried about not having enough gluten to show.  
    • Vegetarian here too, celiac really makes it tough as all the Quorn meat replacement products bar the odd one or two are out Then there's all the scare sites saying only paleo type diets will repair your insides but guess what they're all heavily meat / fish based. @Ennis_TX has some good ideas for meals
    • Wow guys just read all the replies Thankyou all so much!!! There are so many things you've all said that has triggered a light bulb in my little head!  The glasses may not be clean!!  I will put this to a test. One night I'll stick to bottles of cider (double checked are gluten-free)  another I'll try the Gin or William chase vodka if I can find it! And see the effects. if I loose many days due to these not working I'll see a practitioner and see what the deal is!  Before I was diagnosed at Coeliac... I went to a herbalist who did a test and said corn is funny on my body!!! But then 18months later (when I became incontinant and lost a lot of weight) my bloods came back positive (after begging the docs and telling them it wasn't IBS)  i don't tend to snack at bars on food but I must admit I never thought it could be the way it's served!!  The humour and information has made me feel so much better  thanks all  xxx
    • Hey Matt  thanks for your reply fellow Brit! I this is very interesting... I am very sensitive to cross contamination... e.g. A sieve wasn't washed properly when I lived at my mums so when I had drained my gluten-free pasta .. I hadn't even eaten the dish before I started to pass out and go dizzy and hot .. calling for my bf and mum ( they had a great team going when I would have an episode) it's horrendous!  The fatigue is something I imagine every coeliac suffers with! I have to nap a lot.  Ok so the booze I drink most of is -processo -amaretto -vodka, wine, cider (very rarely)  when I drink at home I'm fine!!!  I wonder if it's cross contamination from the bar or the level of alcohol?!  I also had a jäger bomb shot on Friday (looked it up and a lot of people say it's gluten-free)  it's a hard live but someone's got to do it!!  Thanks for the reply!  When you get poorly from gluten (and the other evil candidates) are you so bad you can't function and feel your body is about to snap?  Kind regards  steph
