We stop by Merciers up in Blue Ridge now and then. They have a pretty clean operation and are making their own hard cider so I would try them. I was looking at their peach cider and thinking of making a hard peach. I have a bottle now and the ingredients are: peach juice, sugar, natural peach flavor citric acid and Erythorbic acid for color. The apple was similar I don't recall any crazy stuff in there.
I got into brewing to save money. Now I buy a new gadget every trip to the homebrew shop. My new goal is to just brew great beer.
