Oh, that sounds disgusting to this bourbon lover.

DS has had Loon Juice cider. It's local so may not be down there. It's made from Honeycrisp apples, and OMG now I want one RIGHT NOW, but it's only 1:00 pm.

This is an obvious one, but today when I was looking for a specific bourbon at the liqour store, I noticed a bottle of peanut butter whiskey.

Which I did not buy.  Even for someone who is not allergic to peanuts, that does not sound delicious.

It was probably Screwball.  My bar has just brought that on and I may have thrown a tiny fit about it.  They know how I am with my allergies.

Also, some others to avoid:
Beefeater Gin
Bombay Gin

Due to almond so I've read.

There is a local brewery next to my work, and they make and sell peanut butter porter beer - it sounds disgusting.


For peanut and treenut free alcohol, I work in a restaurant with a bar, so I've called on a couple things.
Decoy Wines (So I've been told)
Angry Orchard hard Cider (they just use apples from different locations)
All of Mike's Hard
White Claw

Again, you may need to check again but these are the ones I've attempted to contact..

I know this is an old post, but I want to chime in on the washing of glasses and cups.
I work at a country club and often help wash wine glasses.  I would never, ever drink from a glass that was washed by the bartender.  There's too many risks.  The glass is dipped in a water (that doesn't get changed too often through out the day), then gets placed on a big sponge like thing that spins.  Then rinsed and wiped down with a rag that has probably wiped many other glasses down.

Of note --- in bars getting a hard alcohol mixed drink is a risk factor because of how bartenders "wash" the mixing devices. Rather...not wash. They usually just get a spray or rinse of water, so allergens can remain. Same with any blender drinks.

So - be sure to order your drink at the actual bar and with the actual bartender. Explain you are allergic to some alcohols with nut derivatives. Ask for your drink to be mixed in your actual drinking glass or a completely clean/fresh mixer.

There are some microbeers or specialty brewers that use actual nuts in their beer. "Nut brown ale" doesn't mean it contains nuts (it's about the color) but I have seen a "Black walnut beer" that had actual walnuts used in the brewing process.

good luck!

Oh, but in answer to your question, so far I haven't run into any Smirnoff Ice flavors that weren't safe. So far so good on Mike's Hard varieties as well.  :cocktail:

You've been lucky with Southern Comfort. It supposedly contains tree nut derivatives. I imagine since it usually contains apricot, it's probably almond, since the two tend to be interchangeable (lots of artificial almond extracts are made from apricot).

First of all, welcome! It's awful how alcohol doesn't have to be labeled.

There is better bourbon to have that I can't imagine would be any less safe than JD.

I will look for a thread we have on this.

I've limited myself to Jack Daniels and coke and Southern Comfort over the last few years and somehow survived. Accidentally had Amaretto the other day whilst drunk and not knowing what it was.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Tempted to attack a Smirnoff Ice in a bit because it's so hot, though am unsure about it still. I wish Alcohols had ingredients and allergy warnings on them like foods do.
