In brief: Wine, distilled liq.

Wines are made from grapes, and are gluten-free.
Gluten is a protein found in grains such as wheat, rye, barley, barley malt (malt), etc... Distilled liquor (hard liquor like gin, vodka, or whiskey) is purified and concentrated by distillation, which removes the gluten that was in the original fermenting grains. Beer, ale, lager, and malt drinks normally contain gluten.

In brief: Non-grain based

Any liquor derived from wheat, barley, oats, rye are potentially gluten containing though distillation usually removes all protein including gluten.
Any liquor derived from other sources, e.g. Rice, grape, agave, potato, sugar cane, etc. Should be safe.

In brief: Gluten

Anything with wheat contains gluten.
Look for alcohol made from veggies or fruits that don't contain wheat.
