I began taking a peek at the possibility of reintroducing hard alcohol. To my surprise, I found that there are a lot of BOTH gluten and yeast free hard-alcohol options! RAPTURE! Some of the liquors included select brands of rum, vodka, gin, and bourbon. The general consensus is that it's important to buy domestic brands of hard alcohol, as it is the law that all domestic alcohol must be pasteurized and filtered. This is not necessarily the case in some countries overseas. If you choose to go with imported liquor, do your homework first!
My liquor of choice has always been vodka. I've never particularly enjoyed any other kind of hard alcohol. Luckily for me, vodka is considered to be the purest of all hard liquors, so it's recommended for those of us who are extra sensitive and "thirsty." Apparently research also shows that vodka is least likely to give you a horrific hangover, which is always a plus.
I'm sharing a bunch of links that I found useful in my research.

I had to do a lot of back-and-forth searching with my research. I'd find a gluten free brand of vodka and then research if it was yeast free, as well. A bit time consuming, yes, but extremely important! For those of you with fewer sensitivities it will be much easier to find something that works for you.
