I know there is a lot of controversy on distilled liquors and them being gluten free. Some feel comfortable consuming liquors that are made with wheat, rye, or barley after they have been distilled, some people do not. The distillation process removes proteins, which is what gluten is, and is said to be safe for people with celiac disease and non-celiac gluten sensitivity. My personal opinion is DO WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL SAFE! I look for liquors that are made with with corn or potatoes and state that they are gluten-free. That's what makes me feel safe. When it comes to Gin or any other alcohol, do your research. We have several brands that we use and trust. For Gin our go to is something distilled from corn based spirits such as Empress 1908.



    1. In a cocktail glass place blackberries and mint into a glass and muddle together.

Gluten Free Mom Colorado

I am married to the most amazing man, Tommy. I am the mother of three beautiful children Landon, Finn, and Daisy. For years I have been helping friends, family and others navigate the life of gluten-free living. I grew up in a gluten-free house, my mom and both brothers were diagnosed with Celiac Disease when I was young. My mom did an amazing job making everything from scratch in a gluten free kitchen. When I had my first child Landon my world was changed. He was born at 24 weeks because I have a short cervix. The doctor told us that he had a slim chance of survival and that his life would be plagued with severe complications. He survived and has minimal complications due to his prematurity, but when Landon was two he started getting rashes all over his body and he would constantly be sick. My mom advised me to get Landon tested for Celiac Disease. This was the beginning of my true GF journey. Shortly after he was diagnosed, I decided to go off gluten as well. Although I do not have Celiac Disease, I have found that I feel 100% better eliminating gluten from my diet. Recently Finn was having some issues with his legs and knees hurting. The doctor told me to take Finn off gluten to see if it was causing the inflammation and pain. Sure enough once we changed his diet the symptoms went away. We have Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance on both sides of the family. My sister-in-law and niece were recently diagnosed and my Grandma recently took gluten out of her diet due to an autoimmune disease. We are in a fortunate position that both of our families understand the purpose of living a gluten-free lifestyle. I am on a mission to help people create amazing gluten-free recipes and to see that this diagnosis is not a curse, but can actually be delicious.
