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

There are several things about visiting the Firefly Distillery and Irvine House Vineyard. One is the relaxing scenic drive to there. Nestled in the middle of large oaks with Spanish moss draped from them is rustic looking building surrounded by grape vines. Just walking around in enjoyable. The employees at the distillery are fantastic, especially Wanda. She made the trip... More

First off it's a pretty drive down roads shrouded with oak trees with Spanish moss draping from them. Be careful, or you will drive right past the entrance, it's marked, but then it's like, um I think you just passed the place. It then sits down a gravel road that winds about, are you really at the right place? Yes... More

It was a very relaxing time at the distillery. There was live music and a food truck that had shrimp, Mahi, and pulled pork tacos which were very good. The liquor tasting was only $6 you can pick 6 different types of vodka, 'moonshine', rum and flavored liquor to try. At the end we got to keep the shot glass.

So it turned out that Irvine House Vineyard and the Firefly Distillery are on the same property and right next to each other...like just a few steps next to each other. We started out at the winery. We tasted some of their wines while we watched a video about the winery with great commentary from the 2 employees serving us... More

Our first stop of the day was at the Firefly Distillery, 6775 Bears Bluff Road Wadmalaw Island, SC 843-557-1405 . It's about 1/2 hour drive outside of Charleston. $6 or 6 tasting and you get to choose between vodka, moonshine and rum. Lots of tasting, lots of teasing and lots of fun. I can't believe I took park in this... More
