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, bourbon, liqueurs, and moonshines.

Every Saturday the distillery hosts Sippin' Saturdays with live music and tasty local food for sale. Come taste the South and enjoy a casual laid back atmosphere!

“Nice place to to visit but.....beware of buying”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our stop there on our vacation. There are animals to check out for the kids. We tasted products in the distillery and did the wine tasting also. Altogether between gift shop products, the wine and distillery products we spent almost×200. I bought two bottles of their lemonade vodka. The employee explained that it is freshly made and should be used by date on the bottle or put in the freezer. The date was 8/22. Recently aI went to give a bottle to a friend and noticed a lot of sediment on the bottom and floating around. Ten days ago I went on their website and realized there is not a contact number. I left a message on their email page. I still haven't received a response. A local friend found a phone number. I called and left a message. No answer.

“WINE AND LIQUOR TASTING”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

A nice drive through the country to visit a combination winery and "distillery." Nice shaded location with plenty of parking under the trees. Small animal farm for the kids, Live music and snacks. For $6 you try five Firefly products,

“You've got to try this”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

We squeezed in a late afternoon tasting after visiting the Charleston Tea Plantation. Watch out for the understated entrance sign, but once you're on the property, you know you're going to have a good time. Drive past the vineyard, park under the pines, and head on into the rustic cabin to try some local hooch. Our server was as nice as she could be, and gave us great suggestions on changing around our selections once she had a sense of what we liked. Just sorry that we couldn't come back for one of their Saturday afternoon cookouts. This is a fun place!

“Firefly is awesome!”
Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

This is a fun place to see and the spirits are tasty too. Definitely an "adults only" venue and you have to want to come here. Everything is $20 and you are limited to 3 bottles. We will be back!
