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.
