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!

Since we were out on Wadmalaw Island, and my husband and his friend enjoy drinking spirits, we decided to stop by the Firefly Distillery and it's adjacent winery. We paid for the tastings at both, but didn't really find spirits that tempted out wallets. Some...More

The hospitality of the staff at Firefly is second to none! The tastings were incredible and everyone there made us feel at home! Sit outside and soak in the sun....well worth the drive there!

So glad we stopped by. Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. Not at all touristy. Instead it’s genuine and true. A highlight of our trip.

Located out in the woods and easy to miss the turn into the parking lot. Not much to see unless there is a festival taking place. One visit was enough for me.

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. :)
