Here is a comprehensive list from the vegetarian
Network Victoria (Australia):

Those suitable for vegans and vegetarians are
marked "VV". You'll be happy to know that Kahlua
is listed "VV"! As are: Galliano, Grand Marnier,
Bacchus Schnapps of various flavors, Captain Morgan
OP Rum, Chartreuse, Cointreau, Frangelico, Lena
Banana Liqueur, Mohala Mango Liqueur, Opal Nera
(Black Sambuca), Rubis Strawberry Liqueur, Tia
Mari, and various brandies, Scotches, bourbobs,
whiskey, rums, etc. Lots of wines, too.

NOTE: Even if you can’t order wines or spirits
online (especially from overseas companies), these
websites give you lists of vegan and veg wines that
you can order from your liquor merchant, or look
for, anyway.

NOTE: Alcohol can be “vegetarian” if it isn’t
“fined” (refined) with blood, isinglass or gelatin,
but it may be fined with casein or albumin, so
would not be vegan. See article just below.

List of California vegan wines:
Frey Vineyards make vegan wines in California

Forrestville Winery
(evidently good, cheap wines that are vegan—from
Sonoma county, Calif.)

Another well-known California company:
I understand that all Fetzer wines are vegetarian,
but only the whites are vegan.

La Rocca Vinyards

Coturri Winery (online ordering; organic)

Barefoot Cellars


Wine is clarified, or cleared, after fermentation.
Some of the ingredients used include:
- edible gelatins (made from bones)
- isinglass (made from the swim bladders of fish)
- casein and potassium caseinate (milk proteins)
- animal albumin (egg albumin and dried blood
In the UK beer (bitter) is also commonly fined
using isinglass. Many bottled bitters and most
lagers are vegan. Guinness is not suitable for
vegans. Most spirits are vegan except for Campari
(contains cochineal) and some Vodkas (passed
through bone charcoal).
