Overview

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!

I’ve reviewed the Deep Water Vineyard on the same property. Very good times. Tastings, beverages and food for purchase, plenty if corn hole boards and places to sit, live music. An awesome experience.

The people were nice but the wine tasting was crowded and understaffed. Out of the 7 wines we tried, only 2 were enjoyable. We walked into the distillery and it was like a fraternity party in there. You may want to think skipping this excursion...More

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. :)
