Vodka should be the highlight of every drink trolley. However, if you have recently switched to a gluten-free diet, you might be questioning all your food and alcohol choices.

What Vodkas Are Gluten-Free

Can you get vodkas that contain no gluten whatsoever?

Vodka is made with potatoes, grapes, corn, and plenty of other vegetables.

But you’ll be happy to know that there are a lot of vodkas that are gluten-free, because, during the distillation process, all the vodka is eradicated from the recipe.

So where can you find a decent gluten-free vodka? How much will you have to pay for one? What ingredients do they contain exactly? Well, we have a good list of gluten-free vodkas for you to try, so look at our list below.

Is There Gluten In Vodka?

Well, the simple fact is that there is no gluten in any spirit. This is because, during the distillation process, the gluten is completely evaporated. This is true even if you are making drinks with an ingredient such as barley.

However, you can get certain vodkas and other spirits that add ingredients after the whole thing has been distilled. This means that there might be some traces of gluten in your final drink.

Therefore celiacs are extra cautious when making their vodka drink.
