Get into the “Spirit” of Vegan Booze!

Did you know that there’s a good chance you’re drinking animal products with your alcohol? Yep! It’s disturbing for vegans and non-vegans alike!

Most of these animal products are used during the “fining process,” which is how alcohol is filtered during brewing. The most common offenders are: Isinglass, carmine, gelatin, egg whites, seashells, honey, milk, casein, and sometimes…brace yourselves folks…actual blood. Wha?!?!

If you want to support brands that don’t utilize animal products, feel free to reference our list of vegan spirits and liquors below.
