Gluten Free Alcohol Guide

What Alcohol is Gluten Free?

Finding gluten free alcoholic beverages has become increasingly difficult. From the ongoing debated about distilled alcohol being gluten free or not, to the accidental mix-ups by a bartender, it’s a challenge to find a gluten free alcoholic beverage that works for you and your diet.

In this gluten free alcohol listing, you’ll find all the beers, hard ciders, vodkas, rums, tequilas and other hard liquors that are gluten free.

Warning: Remember to always double check the drink labels when out and about, and use GluteGuard to back up your gluten free choices!

If you absolutely HATE beer, then you should definitely try a delicious hard cider. Plus, there are a lot of free brands that are gluten free! Just remember that not all hard ciders are gluten free because some brands do barley for enzymes and flavour, so be sure to read the labels carefully!

Vodka can be a very tricky alcohol for gluten free drinkers. Although gluten proteins from wheat based vodkas are technically removed during the distillation process, many people still report feeling the classic symptoms of gluten sensitivity after drinking them.

Blue Ice Vodka, Bombora Vodka, Boyd and Blair, Cayman Blue Vodka, Chopin Polish Vodka, Ciroc, Cold River Vodka, Devotion Vodka, DiVIne, Famous Vodka, Fleischmann’s Vodka, Kamachatka, Krome Vodka, Luksusowa, Monopolowa, New Amsterdam, Ocean Vodka, Pau Maui Hawaiian Vodka, Smirnoff Vodka, Teton Glacier Vodka, Three Olives, Tito’s Vodka, UV, Vikingfjord.
