Is It Gluten Free?

___  Yes!
___   No!
___  I’m afraid to find out!

This one has proven to be surprisingly problematic for me. Celiac.com has quite a bit of conflicting information and my favorite Celiac / Gluten free database, Clan Thompson, has not yet added this one to their list. So I sucked it up and contacted the company. You know from my previous posts how onerous a process it can be to speak to the legal minions.
Post your answer and insights in the comments below and I’ll add my findings in a day or so!

Update:I contacted Captain Morgans (Diageo Distributors) and inquired about the Parrot Bay Coconut Rum specifically. They promptly replied with the following:

Please be advised that Diageo products which have been distilled do not contain glutens or gluten residues. However, as this relates to a medical condition, may we suggest that you consult your own physician concerning the consumption of beverage alcohol products.
Unsure as to whether this covered the Coconut Rum as it’s a low proof product and I was concerned that ingredients may be added after distillation, I asked for clarification and received the following response:
The Captain Morgan Parrot Bay Coconut Rum is a distilled product and it is gluten free. However, as this relates to a medical condition we recommend that you consult a physician before consuming the product.
So there you have it!
