“Gluten-free” has been in high demand across all foods, and that doesn’t stop with booze. Gluten is in grains like wheat, barley, and rye. People doing the gluten-free thing generally have celiac disease, which means gluten causes inflammation in their small intestines. Many of your favorite alcoholic beverages have gluten, so finding a drink that makes your insides feel happy can sometimes be tough.
Never fear. You can trust us to find alcohol brands that are gluten-free. You should be fine if you’re mixing your drink by yourself, but if you’re at a bar, keep an eye on the bartender to make sure they use the exact brand you told them to. A really busy bartender can accidentally pick up the wrong bottle.
