4 thoughts on “Is Jameson Whiskey Gluten Free?”

  1. All whiskeys are gluten free. Crown Royal, Jameson, and Fireball, which you say here are NOT gf are just as gluten free as Jack Daniels, which you say IS gf, but Jack Daniels is made of corn, rye and barley, which are the typical grains in whiskey

  2. Right. But the other whiskeys you review and say contain gluten do not. Is that because you can’t find a specific gf sticker in their product or mentioned in their website?? All spirits are gluten free. Please don’t spread misinformation. People who have to go gluten free already feel like they are missing out on enough.

    • This isn’t misinformation Wendy. Keep in mind that additives and other flavorings may be added to products. If we cannot find a gluten free label, or confirmation from a company, we list it as not gluten free or unknown. All distilled spirits are considered gluten free due to the distillation process, but MANY people with Celiac report symptoms from Whisky, Scotch, and other liquors derived from wheat/barley/grain, so it’s not misinformation. See more in this article from Beyond Celiac: Specifically this statement towards the end, ‘Additionally, the TTB continues to permit the term “gluten-free” on labels and in advertisements for alcohol beverages produced without gluten-containing grains or other ingredients containing gluten, provided the industry member takes appropriate measures to ensure that its raw materials, ingredients, production facilities, storage materials, and finished products were not subject to cross-contact with gluten. Examples include vodka made from corn or potatoes. ‘
