Subsequently, question is, is there yeast in hard liquor? Brewer's yeast is used in all fermented alcoholic beverages—beer, wine, hard cider, sake, kvass, and other similar beverages—so individuals with yeast allergies should avoid these. The same may not be true for distilled liquor. To date, there has been very little research done on yeast allergies and distilled spirits.
