Gluten Free

Gluten-free alcohol refers to alcoholic beverages that do not contain gluten, a protein found in wheat, barley, and rye. Gluten can cause adverse reactions in individuals with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity.

While most traditional beers, ales, and lagers are made from gluten-containing grains, there are gluten-free beer alternatives available, typically made from gluten-free grains like sorghum, millet, rice, or corn.

Other types of gluten-free alcohol include:

  1. Wine: Most wines, including red, white, and rosé, are naturally gluten-free as they are made from grapes. However, some winemakers may use gluten-based products during the production process, so it's essential to check with the manufacturer or choose wines labeled as gluten-free.

  2. Spirits: Distilled spirits such as vodka, rum, tequila, whiskey, and gin are generally considered gluten-free. The distillation process typically removes gluten proteins, even if the base ingredient used in production contains gluten. However, there can be a risk of cross-contamination during manufacturing, so it's advisable to choose brands that explicitly state they are gluten-free.

  3. Ciders: Ciders are fermented beverages made from apples or other fruits. Most ciders are gluten-free, but it's important to check the labels or contact the manufacturer to ensure they are produced in a gluten-free facility and don't contain any gluten-containing additives.

It's important for individuals with gluten sensitivities or celiac disease to read product labels carefully and, if uncertain, consult with the manufacturer or seek guidance from a healthcare professional to ensure the alcohol they consume is gluten-free.
