Overview
More
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, whiskeys, liqueurs, and moonshines. Guests are welcome Tue-Sat 11am-5pm for tastings. Must be 21 to enter tasting room. Feel free to bring your own lunch and have a picnic on our grounds, perhaps after enjoying a wine tasting from Deep Water Vineyard which is located on the same property. Every Saturday we have our Weekend Wine-down with live music and tasty local food truck. Come taste the South and enjoy a casual laid back atmosphere!

What a wonderful place nestled in the countryside of Wadmalaw Island in Charleston. I had Moonshine, Vodka and Bourbon and they were all good. Fun people who served us.

I'm a local, and every time I have visitors, I always take them to the firefly distillery and it is the highlight of their trip. I highly recommend the tastings and I love their lemonade vodka that you can only get at the distillery.

If you go to their website, it lists on a map where their products are sold. I tried to post the link but I am unable to. Just google firefly vodka and click the 'find the fly' tab at the top of their page. :)
