Is Vodka Gluten-Free?
Yes, pure, distilled vodka, even if made with wheat, barley, or rye, is considered gluten-free.
Most vodkas are safe for people with celiac disease because of the distillation process. However, be on the lookout for hidden gluten in vodkas that may add flavorings or other ingredients after distillation. Vodka is typically just water and ethenol but sometimes can contain traces of other ingredients. There is also a risk for gluten cross-contact in facilities that process products containing wheat, barley, or rye.
