Description: Firefly Distillery is South Carolina's first and largest distillery...
Firefly Distillery is South Carolina's first and largest distillery. Firefly Distillery is home to Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, the original sweet tea vodka, and many more southern specialties. Current product lines include vodkas, rums, bourbon, liqueurs, and moonshines. Guests are welcome Tue-Sat 11am-5pm for tastings, closed January. Feel free to bring your own lunch and have a picnic on our grounds, perhaps after enjoying a wine tasting from Irvin~House Vineyards which is located on the same property. Every Saturday the distillery hosts Sippin' Saturdays with live music and tasty local food for sale. Come taste the South and enjoy a casual laid back atmosphere!

She gave us all kinds of creative ways to use the products so it was easy to choose a bottle to take home. Hey, if you're visiting a distillery, you want to bring home a bit of... More

Salty, delicious popcorn to accompany your vodka tasting, yes please! You're able to taste six flavored vodkas for $6. The lemonade vodka was a favorite. How much you like the vodka will be depend on how much you like sweet or flavored spirits. For the most part, I enjoyed the options. This is the superior half of the shared property... More

I did not do the tasting (I was driving), but I did listen as other patrons were having tastings and interactions with the server. I did not get his name, but he was very friendly and knowledgeable about the the products. Another server, Wanda, was cleaning up from a previous tasting group. She was happy to stop to answer my...

We did both the winery and distillery tasting and it was fun. The distillery side was the best. Their Lemonade vodka is super!

My husband and I visited Firefly Distillery as a part of the Low Country Trolley Tours Island Sip and See Tour (highly recommend)!!! What an interesting little distillery this was! It was a lot of fun for my hubby and I. He had never had Firefly, but I first tried Sweet Tea Vodka a few years ago when a friend... More

I am not much of a drinker. Especially harder types of alcohol. They have some delicious flavored alcohols along with normal ones. Wanda is the person that gives you the samples. She is wonderful. The owners need to keep her around. We went in with no intentions of buying anything. With Wanda's enthusiasm and suggestions we ended up walking out... More

Since we visited the Charleston Tea Plantation we decided to stop by the Firefly Distillery. They have tasting rooms for their wine and their spirits, but we just visited the spirits. Firefly has some very interesting flavors such as their sweet tea vodka and lemonade vodka but some legal moonshine. it is easy to forget that the sweet tea and... More

Have visited many times and enjoyed the tasting and products. Great way to spend a few hours. Worth the drive. The folks are very attentive and nice. Will return again.

Two parts to your visit to Firefly---part one->wine tasting of six varieties of Moscado grapes from dry to sweet and part two-->Firefly distillery samples of six products from flavored whiskeys to types of moonshine to specialty drinks. A fun place to spend a couple hours and MAYBE take home some Southern moonshine.

We did a tasting a couple of weeks ago on a Saturday. I had read on TripAdvisor that doing a tasting with Wanda was the highlight of some people's experience at the distillery. So I was super excited that she was our hostess. She was fun, knowledgeable and made the whole thing one of the best parts of our trip... More
