    It's my understanding that the distillation process removes the gluten and that whiskey is gluten free. At least, I believe this is what many experts in celiac disease have concluded.

    I'm hoping no one will contradict me on this one - I'd hate to loose my scotch.

    That seems to be the conclusion. When it's distilled the gluten molecules get left behind. Fermentation on the other hand does very little, so (barley or wheat based) beer is not celiac-safe.

    Anyone bringing me a scotch or bourbon on my birthday is my new best friend.

    The Alcohol in the Hooch does more damage than any minor amount of gluten if it there in minor doses. I think it's a misguided target.

    That being said, I would probably still drink Maker's Mark if it was made by enslaved Choctaws out of refined fiberglass I love it so much. I guess it could be said that I have a bias.

    Alcohol doesn't give me an instant headache and upset my stomach though

    Whisky should, theoretically be gluten free, but some of the cheap blends have colouring put in which contains gluten! So the answer my coeliac husband found was to only drink single malt!
