"We just checked with our cidermaker and the only cider that has honey is the Summer Honey Style."

[a few days later]

"...just got an update on the honey question. The following ciders contain honey: crisp, easy, elder, ginger, honey, hoppin"

Company email (February 2016):
"All of our ciders except for those in our Cider House Collection contain honey. This collection contains three ciders (Strawman, Iceman, and Muse) sold in 750 mL corked bottles. These are very popular styles made in small batches, and can be hard to find at times. However, when you do find it, it is definitely worth the wait! We hope you enjoy it as much as we do. If you are having trouble finding them on their own, let your local liquor store know that you are interested in exploring additional Angry Orchard cider styles and hopefully they will be able to order more from their local distributor."

Company email (January 2016):
"Our ciders are made up of a combination of the following: hard cider, water, cane sugar, apple juice concentrate, honey, natural flavor, carbon dioxide, malic acid and sulfites."

Company email (October 2011):
"All of our ciders are completely vegan."
