We had a good time here. This is a good place to see when visiting the Angel Oak Tree. The vodkas and moonshine blends were our favorites. They even sell sandwiches with delicious maple cookies!

It's a small spot but very cute and fun. We enjoyed the tasting and the popcorn. The lemonade vodka and peach moonshine is fantastic.

We were never before aware that their was a distillery in the Charleston area so imagine our surprise when we found Firefly on an island south of Charleston. Be aware that the signage on the road could use some improvement but since it shares the entrance with a vineyard and is on the left side of the road as you... More

I was recommended to visit here with my young son to pet the animals. I had no ideal it was sort of a bar with tastings for $5 for Firefly spirits or at the Winery side for a $5 sample. It was very rustic, but not in a very fun way, needed cleaning in my opinion. My son did like... More

What a great time was had at firefly distillery. We wanted something different to do for a morning so we hit the road for a tasting. Great people showed all of their different liquors. Very reasonable and just something different to do in my favorite city. I would definitely go back.

We went here after driving out to the tea plantation. The atmosphere is very rural and laid back. Wanda took us through the tasting and made recommendations as we went. She was great! Bought two bottles of booze and just relaxed and enjoyed ourselves. I'll do it again.

We visited the Deep Water Winery/Firefly Distillery property recently. We were enjoying a glass of wine in the courtyard between the wine tasting room and the distillery tasting room. We thought that since we were there, we should at least check out the distillery tasting room. We walked in with absolutely no intention of doing a tasting. That was before... More

So we come to the south for vacation. There is a drink on the menu that sounds innocent enough. Southern Peach Tea. It's not your momma peach tea. When we saw we could go to the distillery where said Peach tea came from we jumped at the chance. They have a tasting room for moonshine, vodkas, whiskeys and rum. Also... More

A friend had a drink earlier in the week that had Firefly Peach Moonshine in it so we decided to visit the distillery. The grounds are unique & quaint (also a winery on the site) and the tasting room & shop are interesting. We were hoping they would show how they made the spirits. It's a cool place to visit.

Thank frdallen
