While it's a little off the beaten track, this is definitely a fun way to spend time relaxing and enjoying the local flavors. This is their first season open in winter, but the fires burning made it toasty and the tasting expert was informative and did not steer us wrong. If you are in the Charleston area, this is a...

Great place to stop by if you're near the area. Had a girls trip to Charleston and this was one of the highlights! The wine was ok, but the distillery is definitely the star. Great opportunity to try their products ( especially the ones not sold in stores)

We loved our visit to Firefly! They have lots of different things to try, and we enjoyed the tasting. The staff were friendly and great with telling you about the different drinks and Firefly itself. The actual drive from Charleston is a beautiful country drive, so that also makes the visit worth the trip!

Although this distillery is a bit of a drive outside of Charleston, it's well worth it. Our group did a tasting with Wanda, who instantly became our best friend. She not only poured our selections but also gave us suggestions on ways to mix the alcohols. The lemonade Vodka served Wanda's way is phenomenal! We definitely recommend the drive to... More

My adult daughter recently visited Firefly Distillery for a "quick" visit to purchase a bottle of Sweet Tea vodka. As we were entering a couple we had met earlier told us we should work with Wanda. Wanda was the highlight of the trip. The tasting was an education in itself with numerous tasting combinations, all complementing each other. Her knowledge... More

My husband di a tasting of the flavored vodka, moonshine and liquer and really enjoyed the experience. The chocolate pecan liquor was expecially good. We bought quite a few bottles for presents, though we thought it as a bit pricey at $20 a bottle.

My husband and I really enjoyed our tasting at the distillery of vodkas and moonshine in many flavors. Wanda was a wonderful "bartender" and really catered to us.

This is a place you must visit if you're interested in distilleries. My wife and I visited the distillery and had a great time sampling different products. The server was a delight. A must visit if you're in the Charleston area. A little hard to find so get good directions.

First of all, the drive there is part of the overall experience... what a beautiful part of Charleston to experience. Tree lined roads, grand oaks, just awesome!!! You are literally removed from the city and out in the middle of almost nowhere. I am not a HUGE Vodka fan and still LOVED the experience. Also there is winery on the... More

We were at Irvin House Vineyards which is at the same location as Firefly Distillery. First we went to wine tasting at Irvin. You pay 5 dollars which includes the wine glass and the five wines they make. You were taken to the back room and they showed a video about the history of their vineyard. All of their wines... More
