I've realized that I may be sensitive to nightshades. I've also realized that vodka is often made from potatoes. I know that wheat based hard alcohols are usually ok (as far as alcohols go), even for celiacs. The gluten is distilled out. Is the... (more)

As has been pointed out, many vodkas found on the shelves are grain vodkas (although Chopin vodka offers a potato vodka that I find has a delightful texture to it). My armchair chemistry tells me that I'd be rather surprised if any nightshade... (more)

I'm aware of the alleged health promoting polyphenols in wine, but I am curious if anyone knows of any studies/information demonstrating potential health promoting properties of hard alcohol? The only real one I can think of is oral hygiene... (more)

This is actually interesting, and I'd want to look into this more for myself, as I'm typically drinking gluten-free hard liquor (bringing a bottle of wine to a party around my age probably wouldn't look right, lol), but I did find this:... (more)

Following paleo, is it so bad? If yes, why? Paleo is known to be free of stupid carbs, so drinking may be a good source of energy and fun :) Correct me if I'm wrong! Paleo drinking envolves only a certain spectre of drinks! Wines, vodkas, and... (more)

Hahah. Good source of energy....no....fun? Obviously :). I'm a boozer, but I don't need to rationalize it. I drink, therefore I am. Depends on frequency and volume Answered above. Mitigates damage rather than eliminating it. But hey...I'm... (more)

This involves a bit of bathroom talk, bear with me! I've been strict paleo for several months now after figuring out that I'm intolerant to a few foods and after a very alcohol-heavy year at university. I cut out alcohol entirely for around 8... (more)

Alcohol is a killer of bacteria. That's why we disinfect wounds with it. But it will also kill off a lot of your important gut bacteria. That's what the loose stools are, mass bacteriacide like with a viral infection. But those bacteria are needed... (more)

Curious about this one, cause I haven't yet developed the taste for Chopin, which is notably distilled from potatoes. Most other vodkas (Grey Goose, Absolut, etc) are distilled from wheat. Anyone know if they contain gluten or not?

Gluten is removed during distillation, so they should be gluten-free unless they have had gluten-containing flavoring added.

In a strict sense no alcoholic beverage is Paleo, since paleolithic people did not have access to wine, beer or whisky which are all products of the agricultural age. Nevertheless I know that many people in our own Paleo community do not have... (more)

Actually, most cultures learn to drink ferments pretty quickly -- and early ferments would have been naturally fermented, just from the yeast in the air, so it's entirely possible that they drank fermented fruit juices, root mashes, etc. This... (more)

As of March 2011, FireFly has started making a "Skinny Sweet Tea Vodka." Their vodka is distilled in South Carolina from Grapes and the Tea is sweetened with Stevia. While I know its not Paleo, I loved this stuff before going Paleo and I wouldn't... (more)
