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!

Had the best time tasting different wines. Knowing it’s local and even the former owner came thru. The ladies in the gift shop were super nice! If you like wine, go visit!

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. :)
