Has anyone tried it?

Do you happen to know if it is vegan. I have found two different list of ingredients which would imply such, but its not from the official site and their site is down.

Never heard of the stuff, but I do have to admit it sounds lovely.... Hopefully you'll find out.

I've tried it and it is delicious with lemonade but I can't answer as to whether or not it's vegan..

I've yet to find out which was quite a bit disappointing the other night when all my beer was gone and that was all that was left. I've got family in town this week, but I hope to find out before I leave next week.

I'll post the response I get when I do, cause I've been told it is extremely good just mixed half and half with water, and one person said they thought drinking it with water helped them to not get hung over.

Have you tried emailing the company? I'd be interested in finding out. I'll shoot them an email as well.

As I originally posted their website is down. I haven't been able to find any email addresses yet. Have you found one, I would love to write.

Sorry, I didn't notice that on your first post. The website I used was I just sent in my name and phone # and they said they would contact me.

That totally was down and gave me a 503 error last week.

Interesting, but YAY!

try the peach tea kind. it's amazing. they have a lot of flavors actually.

Yeah, Firefly is amazing. I don't know about the hangover thing. I've been catastrophically hungover from Firefly, though it does help tremendously in a hair-of-the-dog morning after type of way. 1/2 and 1/2 with water is my usual mix, but the lemonade thing is also amazing. Shots straight aren't bad, but a little on the sweet side. Like a shot of iced tea concentrate.

Thanks for doing the research. I'm also very curious!

They're made by Irvin house vineyards and I found a phone number in google maps. I just spoke with someone and she said they owner (And I guess distiller) was out of town till the fourteenth.

She told me she was 99.9% sure it was vegan and started to say there wouldn't be anything not vegan about the sugar. I mentioned bone-char sugar to her and left my phone number for someone to contact me when they know.

They apparently used to use pure cane juice from louisian in the tea, but they only use that in rum now?! They seem to like local and small type places so I'm venturing a guess that it really is gonna be vegan, but I'll post when I get a call after the 14th (but I won't be back in town till the 25th)

OMG is that available in the uk?! if its vegan I need some. i love ice tea and i love vodka, combining them seems like a good idea!
