Gluten Free Alcoholic Drinks
Gluten free. You see it everywhere these days right? But what does it mean?
The technical answer: For any food item to be labelled as being gluten free, it has to have less than 20 parts of gluten per million.
Nowadays there are a growing amount of great tasting gluten free alcoholic drinks in the UK, but it wasn’t always that way.
It always seemed pretty unfair that coeliacs had to miss out on the simple joys of life – like a good beer or piece of toast, but now with countless new options across all categories, things have definitely improved.
With many gluten free alcoholic drinks out there simply being a ‘free-from’ version of their original, we wanted to make sure we made Long Shot completely gluten free from the start – and with less than 10 parts per million, Long Shot can offer that new solution to the parched masses out there.
Being gluten intolerant or coeliac is pretty serious though, and can even be life-threatening. So it’s important to know that the grain alcohol used in our manufacturing (although it comes predominantly from grains such as wheat), is completely gluten-free because of our distillation process, breaking down and removing the proteins that trigger these intolerances and allergies.
So whether gluten is your absolute kryptonite, or you’re simply trying to consume less, we’ve got your next gluten free alcoholic drink sorted.
All our Drinks are...
Suitable for Vegans
Because we also watched 'that' Netflix documentary
It turns out most of the beers and wines out there aren’t actually vegan-friendly at all (I know, it was news to us too!) So rather than just ticking the ‘vegan’ box, we wanted to make a great-tasting drink first, which also happens to be suitable for vegans. Check ingredients >
Because that’s cool, right?
A rigorous distillation process for our grain alcohol helps to break down and remove the proteins that trigger any gluten intolerances and allergies. So if you’re simply trying to cut down, or have a more serious issue, you’ve nothing to worry about with our gluten-free hard seltzers. Check ingredients >
Low carbs mean it’s perfect for washing down that avocado & egg salad!
That’s right – it is possible to still enjoy a drink whilst on a keto-diet, you just might need to stay away from the beers. With only 2-2.5g of carbohydrate per can (all of which come from naturally occurring sugars in our fruit juices), Long Shot can bring that keto-friendly option to the drinks table.

So you can have that second cheeseburger after all!
But seriously, why waste all that hard work with the diet when enjoying a drink? We noticed that those couple of drinks can all start to add up and is partly why we created Long Shot – to bring that lighter alternative. And with roughly half the calories of your standard G&T, you can get more of the flavour, with less of the guilt. Check ingredients >
Basically the opposite of those sugary canned cocktails you see everywhere.
We got frustrated by the lack of high-quality ‘lighter’ options out there and weren’t so keen on the teeth-rotting level of sugars we found in most ready-to-drink options we found. So the only sugar you’ll find in our drinks comes from naturally occurring sources in the fruit-juices we use. Check ingredients >
The same kick as your standard journey juice, with less of the guilt
We wanted the individual fruits we use to be the centre of our drinks – and we’re sometimes told it’s hard to taste the alcohol in them – but there’s nothing stopping you topping yours up with a splash of vodka for more of a hit if you fancy! Check ingredients >
