mike’s HARDER is obsessed with quality and crafting the best tasting hard lemonades. We created a proprietary and unique filtration process to make the purest, cleanest tasting malt beverage base giving all our products a clean, natural taste. What we learned, as a by-product of this rigorous filtration process, was that this process naturally removes gluten. Recently, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) – the Federal government organization that oversees labeling for alcoholic beverages – granted us permission to introduce a special seal for our product packaging to communicate that mike’s HARDER products are crafted to remove gluten. This seal is the first of its kind for fermented malt beverages having a gluten-containing grain, which in our case is barley. Since Mike’s Hard Lemonade Co.’s Chief Lemon Squeezer and his family follow a gluten-removed diet, the team at mike’s HARDER is thrilled to be able to place our Crafted to Remove Gluten seal on our packaging.
At mike’s HARDER, we are committed to ensuring every batch meets our team’s high standards for quality and taste. Each is tested by an independent agency using the R5 Competitive ELISA test. Our proprietary process is not used by any other fermented malt beverage in the industry and helps us create that clean taste unique just to mike’s HARDER! This new designation, that our products are crafted to remove gluten, is not meant to encourage you to drink more. In fact, we encourage you to consult with your doctor if you have extreme sensitivities since our product may contain gluten traces. mike’s HARDER is fermented from grains that contain gluten and crafted to remove gluten. The gluten content cannot be verified, and this product may contain gluten.
