Finding a safe and delicious gluten free alcoholic beverage has become growingly difficult.
From the ongoing debate about distilled alcohol being gluten free or not to the accidental mix ups by the bartender, it’s a challenge to find a gluten free alcoholic beverage that works for you and your diet.
The Ultimate Gluten Free Alcohol List
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. Just note that if a product or brand has (don’t drink if allergic to gluten) it’s because it’s not truly safe for anyone with Celiac or a gluten sensitivity. Although those alcohols are “gluten free” or “wheat free” there is still a very small trace of gluten in them, even after the distillation process. Although this trace of gluten is microscopic, really sensitive Celiacs or gluten allergenic folks may have a negative reaction to those products.
So just be safe and drink what you think is best for your body.
Here’s what you’ll find in this gluten free alcohol listing:
- Gluten Free Beer
- Gluten Free Hard Cider
- Gluten Free Vodka
- Gluten Free Tequila
- Gluten Free Rum
- Gluten Free Gin
- Gluten Free Hard Sodas
- Gluten Free Hard Seltzer
- Other Gluten Free Liquors and Alcohol
Although I am very confident in this listing, I am human, so mistakes may have been made. I urge you to please double check the labels of alcoholic beverages to ensure that they are truly gluten free.
So with that being said, let’s just straight into this gluten free alcohol list.

Vodka is a very tricky alcohol for gluten free drinkers. You see, technically, during the distillation process of the vodka, the gluten proteins from wheat based vodkas is supposed to be removed. However, many people have claimed that these vodkas (made from wheat) still contain gluten, thus leaving them feeling sick and nauseous. So to be safe, stay away from all wheat based vodkas if you have Celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity.
However, you can still opt for a non-wheat, potato, corn, or grape based vodka which are typically cleared for gluten free consumption.

What About Wine?
So most wine tends to be gluten free from an ingredients perspective. The only time wine may be suspect to glutenous ingredients or cross contamination is from the wine sealant used in wine barrels.
This sealant sometimes tend to leak into the wine thus cross contaminating the wine.
However, most wineries are starting to remove this past from their barrels.
So if you do have any questions about whether or not a wine contains gluten, it’s advised to contact the winery directly to see if their wines or barrels contain any wheat or glutenous ingredients.
But on a side note, if you’re looking for delicious wines to experience and try, I suggest you check out one of these wine subscription boxes.
Basically the way it works is that each company will send you a box of wine that are all based on your tastes and palette.
It truly is a pretty awesome concept!
Is distilled alcohol gluten free?
Although hard liquors such as vodka, bourbon, whiskey, gin, and scotch are made from glutenous grains, they are actually made gluten free through the rigorous distillation process.
So basically even though some liquors are made with gluten, after distillation, all the gluten is removed from the final product.
Thankfully, there are a couple fool proof liquors that are usually always gluten free such as tequila which is made from agave, rum which is made from sugar cane, and brandy which is basically distilled wine.
All of which are not made from wheat or any glutenous main ingredients.
