Is Vodka Gluten-Free?
Yes! Vodka is alcohol distilled from grains—including corn, sorghum, rice, wheat and rye. But the distilling process removes all proteins, including gluten, from alcohol. The National Celiac Association considers distilled spirits gluten-free, even if they’re made with gluten-containing grains. So, all kinds of vodka should be safe for people who can’t eat gluten.
That said, if you’re extra-sensitive, or just want to cut wheat out of your life, we’ve rounded up the best wheat- and gluten-free vodkas out there.
A classic, super-smooth vodka, Tito’s is a great choice for drinking straight or in a cocktail. The company makes vodka using yellow corn, using old-fashioned pot stills and taste-testing every batch to ensure top quality. Did you know you can cook with vodka, too?
Another flavored option comes from South Carolina-based brand Dixie, which makes all of its vodkas from non-GMO corn. Unusual flavors—think black pepper and mint—make great mixers for cocktails. These mixed drinks are easy to make at home.
In Polish, Luksosowa means “luxurious,” and this ultra-smooth vodka lives up to the name. Made in Poland since 1928, Luksusowa vodka is made from 100% potatoes and has earned more than 38 awards in its long history. This budget-friendly pick appears on nearly all of our best vodka lists.
Boasting that they make the “World’s Number 1” vodka, Smirnoff is probably the easiest vodka to find. Their No. 21 vodka is made from non-GMO corn. Do you know this secret sign that tells you whether food is genetically modified?
So far, most of these vodkas have been made using traditional gluten-free grains. Well, Crystal Head Vodka is different. It’s made from peaches and creamed corn, then blended with water from Newfoundland. It’s filtered seven times, including through layers of semi-precious crystals. Oh, and it also comes in a skull-shaped glass bottle.
A top contender for that perfect dry martini? Cold River Vodka, handmade in Maine from local potatoes. For a delicious, totally natural flavored vodka, try their blueberry vodka, made with wild Maine berries.
