If you’re gluten-free or vegan (or both), enjoying alcohol can be almost as tricky as finding food that’s safe for you to eat.

Luckily, most spirits are gluten-free and vegan, but other alcoholic drinks aren’t so straightforward.

According to Coeliac UK, beers, lagers, stouts and ales aren’t safe for a gluten-free diet – unless you specifically pick up a gluten-free alternative, of course.

Vegans aren’t so fortunate either.

A lot of breweries will use animal-derived products, such as gelatine or isinglass (a gelatine made from the swim bladder of fish) during the clearing process.

These are definitely not vegan friendly.

Not sure what’s safe? Here are 10 alcoholic drinks that are both gluten-free and vegan.
