Vegan Booze Guide

Because Saint Patrick’s day was yesterday, I thought I’d give you all a little ‘refresher’ on vegan drinking information. Pun intended.
Not all booze is Vegan friendly! A lot of people don’t know about what goes in to their drinks isn’t only alcohol. Animal products can be used in alcoholic beverages directly, or during the filtration process. If your drink has honey or dairy in it, you can read it on the label, but if it’s been filtered through egg whites, gelatin, seashells, or isinglass(fish bladder, a common occurrence in Japanese beer) you won’t know for sure unless you ask. If there is a brand you’re curious about, contact the company and ask them if they use animal free alternatives in their filtration processes.
I’m not much of a drinker, but I always get questions about what kind of alcohol Vegans can drink, so I’ve compiled a short list of Vegan friendly alcohol options. Obviously, if I were to try to list all of the companies that offer Vegan friendly alcohol, it would take like forever. So, I’m going to list companies that are more well known. If I forgot any that you want listed, let me know. (Obviously Organic NSA alcohol is superior to any other kind and no alcohol is superior to that when regarding health.) When in doubt, don’t drink it.

Obviously I left a ton out, so if you want to find out if a certain drink is Vegan friendly, I usually use this site as it is a trustworthy source of info:

To my knowledge, all of the products listed on this page are Vegan and are processed in a cruelty free manner. If you find evidence that any of the products on this list are not vegan, please let me know and I will alter the list accordingly.

(I do not support or condone abusing alcohol and only wish to provide information for those who choose to partake in it safely.)
