(I see that Ranitidine itself is gluten-free as listed on a gluten-free drug list... so I'm assuming the syrup is also GF, but wanted to be sure.)

Yes, I believe so.
The brand name Zantac syrup does not contain gluten (see below) and it is likely that the generic equivalents have the same formulation.
Each 1 mL of Zantac Syrup contains 16.8 mg of ranitidine HCl equivalent to 15 mg of ranitidine. Zantac Syrup also contains the inactive ingredients alcohol (7.5%), butylparaben, dibasic sodium phosphate, hypromellose, peppermint flavor, monobasic potassium phosphate, propylparaben, purified water, saccharin sodium, sodium chloride, and sorbitol.
