Imperial Stash Series

Our Imperial Stash series is an experimental line of high octane ciders that combines the creative spirit of Austin’s East Side with craft and culinary flavors for a unique sensory experience with every new cider.

Ft. Artist: Robert Lin

🔥🥫Robert Lin goes CRAZY with this can art, matching the uniqueness of the flavor within, the stylized, limited edition can features a honey drip print around the rim and holographic honeycomb and bee motifs, amongst many other special elements! “When Austin Eastciders approached me about this new collaboration with Mike’s Hot Honey, I was pumped to be a part of it,” said Robert Lin, designer and owner of Robert Lin Design. “The combination of the two flavors was unexpected, but also perfectly matched with Austin Eastciders’ love of doing things differently. I wanted to bring something unexpected to the can design, as well, which is what inspired the Flaming Honey Bees—a special crew of honey-makers bringing their secret ingredient to an unexpected new cider. I’m pumped for people to try it.” (Robert Lin)
