Started our Charleston weekend by checking out Firefly and was glad we chose to do so. Wanda was an awesome bartender and we found several new types of Firefly that we hadn't tried before. Great lunch place on-site with pizza, fish tacos, etc that were great. Highly recommend!

So much fun to go a few times a year to taste latest spirits, then sit and listen to band under the beautiful oaks on Wadmalaw.

Stopped in after touring the nearby tea plantation. Very enjoyable tasting room. The sweet tea vodka and lemonade vodka are terrific! Took some of both home. They have a small petting zoo for kids.

Deep water vineyard, firefly distillery and animals for the kids all in one stop! It is a beautiful setting. There is a food truck if you hungry. We did the tasting at the distillery - mint vodka is amazing!!!

Wanda was a blast! Best $6 ever spent! There's not much to it, but the simplicity is what makes it so great. Roam around the grounds and check out the gardens and animals.

Went to the distillery with a group of girls. We loved talking with the staff...We had two younger guys give us our samples and they were so much fun !! Loved trying all the moonshine and you get to take home a shot glass! Highly recommend if you have some extra time in the Charleston area.

Took my golf buddies to Firefly to do a little sampling. Our barkeep was exceptional and had us laughing and having a great time. The different flavors were fun to try. I highly recommend the Lemonade Vodka and Strawberry moonshine. Good way to spend an afternoon.

We were not impressed with Firefly. We LOVE Firefly Vodka, but there's not really much to do at the distillary. Maybe a night visit would be more exciting. There's a tasting house "distillary", a gift shop, a chicken coop, and vineyard. There is a food cart type thing, if you are hungry, and corn hole boards if you want to... More
