Good time at Firefly Distillery. This is a great place to go and spend some time when you are in or near Charleston. They have the distillery and a winery on the same property. The staff is great and the liquor's not bad either.

I love Firefly sweet tea vodka, so I had to visit the distillery! It appears to be a run down area when you pull up, but that was part of the charm. We did a tasting in the Firefly building, which was a lot of fun. We were there mid week, so it wasn't crowded, but the bartender said it's... More

Stopped here after a trip to the Charleston Tea Plantation. It was a Tuesday afternoon. I am sorry to say it was a very disappointing experience. Quite a busy afternoon and it appeared they were understaffed. I waited 20 minutes for the tasting to start. I cannot remember the young ladies name who was going to handle the tasting. She... More

Very disappointing. When one goes to a distillery, one expects to actually see a distillery. The only thing to do here is drink and buy alcohol. Since, this place is located in the middle of nowhere, I found it a waste of mileage . I won't drink and drive. You can buy the vodka in a store and save the... More

Did both the distillery and wine tastings. The distillery has several things to taste, vodka, rum, whiskey, moonshine and appertiefs. I'm usually a bourbon drinker and even though I liked several of the offerings I liked the moonshine the best. Fun time. My only criticism is that our person leading the tasting (who did a great job) also had to... More

Would have given this a better review however they allowed a couple to bring in a large dog on a long leash that was barking and wandering it's leash length. We have sever animal pet hair and dander allergies in our family and businesses meet to ask them to tKe the animal out if not a service animal

We did the taste test at the Distillery, next to the Vineyard. I think it was $6.00 for 6 samples and you keep your shot glass. Wasn't thrilled with having to stand the entire time, a stool would have been nice. The samples we had were good and we bought some moonshine and rum there, but later found it was... More

We wanted to spend a day out of the sunshine after being on the beach for several days. We went to visit the Angel Oak tree, and happened upon the distillery. We had never been to one and had no idea what to expect. We met Wanda. She was wonderful! She served us several of her own special drinks as... More

We went specifically after a recommendation from staff at the B&B regarding the lemonade vodka which is only sold at the distillery and not in any liquor stores. The sampling was $6 which included 6 samples and a shot glass to keep. The vodkas were very tasty and my mom liked the flavored moonshine. The after dinner drinks were interesting.... More
