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, 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!

We decided to stop here on our way out of Charleston and are so glad we did. We did the vodka tasting and ended up bringing home 2 bottles of lemonade vodka. Man do I wish they could ship this stuff out because it was sooooo good.

After reading about this distillery in Rachel Ray magazine we decided to make a trip out to Wadmalaw Island. It was a beautiful drive. The Firefly Distillery is a very cool farm-like location with a tasting room, gift shop, and a bunch of cute animals. There is also a winery on the same property, although we did not do the wine tasting. At the Firefly tasting, there are 12 drinks to choose from, including different flavors of vodka, bourbon and rums. For $6 you can taste 6. There were 2 of us so we tried all 12. We especially liked the stories that the bartenders told as they poured us our tastings. The hardest part was limiting ourselves to 6 bottles, since you can only buy 3 per person! We also enjoyed wandering around the farm and looking at the farm animals.

I found this tour by accident and I am so happy I did! We enjoyed the land that Firefly was on. We were able to taste all 12 vodkas, rums, and bourbons. I paid $6 for 6 samples and my boyfriend paid $6 for the other 6 so we could try them all. This is a great place for the whole family. They have animals all over the property and corn hole game. They also have a tire swing and when we were there they had live music. Fun people too. So Bring the whole family and come out for some fun and drinks.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Firefly distillery. The tasting was great ($6 for 6 liquors and keep the shot glass). We were able to share amongst our group and taste all 12 products. The grounds are beautiful. They have corn hole, tire swing, plenty of grass, gardens, vineyards, and animals. Our toddler had a blast. We also went to the winery tasting ($3 for 6 wines and keep the glass). I would recommend this to anyone near Charleston

This should not be missed. Vodka tasting and rum. $6 for 6 different tastes. You get to keep the shot glass. Really a lot of fun
