Ultimate List of Alcohol Containing Nuts

Nuts in alcohol? It’s true. In order to be safe and stay educated, I’ve compiled a handy guide of alcohol that contains nut ingredients. We’re talking beer, brandy, gin, liqueurs, rum, vodka, and whiskey. I was surprised that many types of gin are made with almonds, who knew!

Another little known fact is that spirits aren’t regulated by the FDA, which means they fall under the jurisdiction of the Department of the Treasury’s Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau which doesn’t have the same labeling requirements as the FDA. Please use this list as a guide, but always make sure to never consume anything you don’t feel comfortable about.

    Rumchata – doesn’t contain nuts BUT on their website it states that some of their ingredients have been processed on the same equipment with nuts and/or coconut products.
