Firefly Distillery is South Carolina's first and largest distillery....

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. Guests are welcome Tue-Sat 11am-5pm for tastings, closed January. Feel free to bring your own lunch and have a picnic on our grounds, perhaps after enjoying a wine tasting from Irvin~House Vineyards which is located on the same property. 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!

This was NOT what we envisioned (look for the entrance bc you will drive past it) but that isn’t a bad thing. We thought it would be a HUGE production. It’s a really nice size with all kinds of animals! A mini cow, pig, goat, chickens. And then there is the booze. Really good. We were (like many others) lucky... More

We brought a friend to the Firefly Distillery tasting and it was a fun experience. As you get in they will give you a sheet of paper where you mark six of the liquors that you want to try and they will be served in order. You can keep the shot glass with the distillery logo at the end as... More

The Distillery itself is just a tasting room. They have a still, but it's only open for tours on a very limited basis. You get to taste 6 different distilled drinks for $6 and get to keep the etched shot glass. It's combined with a vineyard which also has tastings (separate $5 charge for 5 tastes and a glass), a...

A must stop if you visiting Charleston. The lemonade vodka is a must the only place you can buy it is the distillery. Wine has changed ownership new owners have tweaked the wine. Very good so try it

We stopped here last week on our way down to Savannah GA from Charleston SC. It wasn't planned as part of our trip but decided to stop after seeing a flyer for it. Best decision! The tastings were awesome and Wanda made the whole experience so much fun. I wish we were driving home instead of flying. We were limited... More

My wife thought she would definitely NOT like anything here,,,,,,surprise,,,,,,she walked out with 4 different bottles of the great tasting moonshine. Wanda made some tasty mixed flavors and had her hooked. Sooo glad we decided to check them out. Give this... More

My wife & I returned for the first time since the distillery was sold & it is still a great way to spend a couple of hours. The tasting room is fun with their shot glasses & trying their local Firefly products. We bought several bottles of different types & then went over to the wine tasting room. They have... More

This place is a hoot, have a wonderful wine experience and then visit with Wanda for great moonshine and vodka tasting also! It's a little bit of a ride from downtown but worth it!
