This is right next door to the Irvin House Vineyard. You don't get an actual tour of the distillery, which is a bit disappointing, but for $6 you get to taste six of their distilled products (they have a dozen or so), and you get to keep the souvenir shot glass. Their products tend to be on the sweet side... More

So this was fun! Make sure to do the liquor tasting 2nd as it will take the longest to try 6...and the complementary one. The wine tasting was good but REALLY sweet 😝.

The place is way out but a nice scenic drive. Be aware that you have to pay to taste anything. We were not aware of this when we were tasting the wines and this is the first place we have ever had to pay to taste, fine but I would have liked to know ahead of time. There is only... More

Firefly Distillery is not a distillery at all. The property has a vineyard and a winery for it's muscodine wines and a tasting room for it's world famous Sweet Tea Vodka along with bourbons and moonshine which are all distilled in Kentucky. The Firefly Distillery is a scenic 30-mile drive from Charleston into the backwoods of Wadmalaw Island. The property... More

It was busy, but the staff were freindly, you can do several self guided tours for free. They had live music, food and wine tasting going on.

Way back in the woods, but worth the trip. Great staff and tasting. Some products only available there...too bad!

I knew I would enjoy the winery, but I wasn't so sure about the distillery. The tasting pleasantly surprised me. They have something for everyone. My favorites were the apple pie, banana pudding, and strawberry moonshines. One warning for lightweights like myself, bring a picnic lunch or snack. They have some popcorn on the tasting table, but there is no... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the Annual Lucille Ball Grape Stomping event, the wine tasting, the distillery (assorted flavors of vodka and "white lightning"), the food, the music, the grape vineyard (muscadines), the ambience -- Everything was wonderful!

If you are looking for something fun, different and quite enjoyable (and are over 21), this is the place to go. Staff was the definition of southern hospitality, very informative and certainly knew their stuff. Great location away, just be sure you do not miss the turn. We did not but heard some others that went by more than once... More
