Is Captain Morgan Rum Gluten-Free?

glutenfreechart8 Gluten-Free Confidence Score: 8/10

Captain Morgan Rums are generally considered gluten-free, but there’s one thing to remember. Captain Morgan produces flavored rums as well, and there’s an outside chance those could contain gluten (and since it is alcohol they are not required to disclose allergens). There’s also a raging debate about whether or not the distillation process removes gluten proteins). If you must drink Captain Morgan we advise you use the regular Captain Morgan’s rum.

    Hi! What is your source of the fact that Captain Morgan Spiced Rum is gluten free? I contacted them several times but I never got a response… and on the internet I find many people arguing about whether it is suitable or not suitable for celeacs, so I am quite confused about this…

      HI Klaus. We actually did reach out to them directly (over a year ago) and they claimed that their regular rum is gluten-free but they made no guarantees about their flavored rums. There is always a lot of debate about alcohol and if distillation removes gluten, etc. The safest bet is to just stick with alcohol that is not distilled from wheat such as 100% agave tequila or potato or corn based vodkas, for example.

        Hi!
        Thank you for your response! Hm, if they say it is gluten free, it shouldn’t be a problem I think… otherwise I will go on with stuff like Jägermeister and Bacardi Superior! 🙂
        Have a nice day!
        Sincerely,
        Klaus

        Rum is distilled from sugar cane or sugar cane syrup/molasses, NOT wheat or barley, so the only possible gluten-containing ingredients might be the additional ingredients for their flavored rums. It is best to contact them for their flavored varieties.
