Irish cream, in its traditional form, typically contains ingredients like cream, Irish whiskey, sugar, and flavorings, which are generally considered gluten-free.

However, some variations or flavored versions of Irish cream may contain additives or flavorings that could potentially contain gluten. It’s essential to check labels and opt for products labeled as “gluten-free” to ensure they meet strict gluten-free standards.
