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

    • Yes you are correct. Interestingly my genes in the US are thought to be more associated with RA. Which is something they thought I had prediagnosis. In the Middle and far East they are more likely to be associated with celiac and they are rare genes in Caucasians which I am according to my parents known heritage. I always caution folks not to take the gene tests as absolute proof they can't have celiac because I had one child who had positive blood and biopsy, did well on the diet, then got genes tested in young adulthood and was told they could never be celiac. Of course that resulted in her abandoning the diet. I worry but hope someday doctors will realise we still have a lot to learn about the genetics of this disease. PS While I still have some deformity in my hands my joint pain resolved after a few months on the diet.
    • It seems like you really need a concrete or near concrete answer so I would say maybe you ought to get the gene testing. Then you can decide on the gluten challenge.   Thanks! I am convinced our dogs are there waiting for us. Meanwhile they are playing, running, laughing, barking & chasing. I have another favorite quote dealing with dogs: "If a dog will not come to you after having looked you in the face, you should go home & examine your conscience."  ~~~ Woodrow Wilson ~~~
    • I can't help thinking that all of this would be so much easier if the doctor I went to 10 years ago would have done testing for celiac, rather than tell me I probably should avoid gluten. He was looking to sell allergy shots and hormone treatment, he had nothing to gain from me being diagnosed celiac. I've been messing around ever since, sort-of-most-of the time being gluten free but never being strict about it. I really feel like three months of eating gluten would do my body a lot of permanent damage. I've got elevated liver enzymes for the third time since 2008 and no cause can be found which might be good, I guess. I wonder if it would be reasonable to do the HLA testing first, to decide if I really need to do the gluten challenge. If the biopsy is negative, that is. Squirmingitch, love your tag line about dogs in heaven. We lost the best dog ever last December. I sure hope all my dogs are there waiting for me!
    • Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA alleles mentioned above. Results are reported as permissive, nonpermissive, or equivocal gene pairs. From: http://www.mayomedicallaboratories.com/test-catalog/Clinical+and+Interpretive/88906  
    • This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven?  My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an absolute determination either way.
