Is Fireball Whisky Gluten-Free?
The Answer is: NO
All our research as continuously shows that that Fireball Whiskey is NOT gluten-free. The company claims that Fireball Whiskey is “considered” gluten-free as the distillation process “technically” removes gluten proteins.
It can’t be guaranteed to be 100% gluten-free. It is therefore advised that if you are allergic to gluten or Celiacs, to steer clear.
It is generally accepted that all distilled alcohol such as Fireball is gluten-free due to the distillation process which is said to remove most of the gluten although some gluten-sensitive celiacs can have an adverse reaction.
Many people diagnosed with celiac disease choose to avoid flavoured whiskey due to the fact that the additional flavourings such as the added cinnamon can sometimes be contaminated and sourced from a third party supplier. This means that the company generally has no control over the manufacturing process of the cinnamon flavouring.
