Is Bourbon Gluten-Free?

Yes, pure, distilled bourbon, even if made with wheat, barley, or rye added to the “mash” is considered gluten-free. Most bourbons are safe for people with celiac disease because of the distillation process. However, be on the lookout for hidden gluten in bourbons that add flavorings or other additives after distillation. There is also a risk for gluten cross-contamination in facilities that process products containing wheat, barley, or rye. Read more at Answers from a Dietitian.
