Bailey's Irish Cream - Gluten Free?

T’is the season to be merry and for me that means copious amounts of Bailey’s Irish Cream J

I’ve seen some Bailey’s copies on the market that say they contain gluten but the official Bailey’s bottles don’t.

I dug about on their website for a while and found in the FAQs some info on allergies.

I am allergic to Gluten/Egg/Lactose/Nuts does Baileys® contain Gluten/Egg/Lactose/Nuts?

We are not qualified to give medical advice. If you are a person with a serious food allergy, you should consult your doctor before consuming Baileys® who can contact us for a more detailed list of component ingredients if required. The information below is intended as a guide only.


Gluten:
Please be advised that the whiskey used in
Baileys® is manufactured by fermenting grain which contains Gluten. Due to the presence of gluten in the whiskey components before distillation we cannot absolutely guarantee that there are no effects to coeliacs. As we are not qualified to give medical advice persons requiring a gluten free diet should consult their medical adviser before consuming Baileys®.

Pretty similar advice to that given by Jack Daniels. And equally frustrating.

Can you imagine a normal person asking their doctor to contact Bailey’s for an ingredients list?? Why can’t they just post the ingredients on their website??
