Owner description: 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.

“Great setting, great booze”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

This is a great way to see the countryside of south carolina and have a good time. If you like alcohol then this is your place. They have something for people with a sweet tooth and some selections that kick you in the mouth as well. It's a lively atmosphere with a lovely grounds. Overall, a must do for almost anyone.

“Good tastings”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Firefly had a good line up of tastings for all taste buds, from sweet Firefly Sweet Tea and Southern Lemonade to bourbon, rum Moonshine. Very out of the way, but perfect if you start with a tour of the Charleston Tea Plantation, which is where Firefly gets the tea for its Sweet Tea.

“Peach Moonshine - who knew?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Just a few steps from the Irvin House Vineyard wine tasting building was the Firefly Distillery tasting house. We enjoyed tasting the great variety of spirits and definitely bought some to share with friends and family back home.

The popcorn was nice for the kids to much on while Mom and Dad did the tasting.

I did a blogpost that included details and pictures from Firefly: http://jacquehughes.blogspot.com/

“FIREFLY MOONSHINE Latest Rage!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013

We didn't know anything about this local drink until my husband went to a local liquor store and the clerk mentioned that they can't keep it on the shelf! We decided to do some investigating by way of sampling at the distillery and LOVED the PEACH moonshine the best. Nice peaceful place to linger. Also saw an ad for weekly musical entertainment.

“So much fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Whenever I go to Charleston, I always stop here for a tasting and often walk away with a bottle or two. The employees are always super helpful and will walk you through the offerings. I LOVE their lemonade vodka, which they only sell at the distillery. Be sure to pack a snack or bring lunch/dinner before you drive out because you will walk away with a bit of a buzz after the tasting. It's fun to walk around the farm and there are picnic tables around the property.
