Two new Australian vodkas, both made from grapes, now are available in the United States. G'Day Imports, L.L.C. is importing Bombora and CooranBong, both of which are distilled from grapes grown in the Barossa Valley in Australia.

Many people with celiac disease can handle drinking conventional vodkas, most of which are made from wheat, potatoes and corn. In fact, distilled liquor and vinegar are considered to be safe on the gluten-free diet.

However, a percentage of people with celiac (myself among them) do react to vinegar and alcohol distilled from gluten grains. I enjoy vodka and can drink pure potato vodka with no problem ... but I'm happy to have two new alternatives.

Bombora and CooranBong both are distilled in a completely gluten-free environment, according to G'Day Imports. The two premium vodkas currently are available in California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Minnesota, Missouri, North Carolina, New Hampshore, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Washington, and G'Day Imports says it plans to add more states to its distribution list in 2011.
