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.

Deep water vineyard, firefly distillery and animals for the kids all in one stop! It is a beautiful setting. There is a food truck if you hungry. We did the tasting at the distillery - mint vodka is amazing!!!

Wanda was a blast! Best $6 ever spent! There's not much to it, but the simplicity is what makes it so great. Roam around the grounds and check out the gardens and animals.

Went to the distillery with a group of girls. We loved talking with the staff...We had two younger guys give us our samples and they were so much fun !! Loved trying all the moonshine and you get to take home a shot glass! Highly recommend if you have some extra time in the Charleston area.

Took my golf buddies to Firefly to do a little sampling. Our barkeep was exceptional and had us laughing and having a great time. The different flavors were fun to try. I highly recommend the Lemonade Vodka and Strawberry moonshine. Good way to spend an afternoon.

We were not impressed with Firefly. We LOVE Firefly Vodka, but there's not really much to do at the distillary. Maybe a night visit would be more exciting. There's a tasting house "distillary", a gift shop, a chicken coop, and vineyard. There is a food cart type thing, if you are hungry, and corn hole boards if you want to... More

Awesome time--would suggest to anyone who wants a short day time activity. I was surprised to see so many kids around a tasting place, but I guess there's a lot of animals and fun stuff for the kids to try too. The cow, Ida, is super friendly and loves getting pet. The distillery itself was great, since I've never really... More

Firefly distillery is a really fun place, take your houseguests and enjoy a good time. Wanda is especially great, she gives a great tasting (costs $6 for 6 tastes) and really seems to enjoy her job. She made it so much fun and we learned a lot about pairing different flavors. Certainly does make you want to buy afterwards. The... More

This was a really fun stop! I was really surprised by how many different products they did still there. They make moonshine whiskey rum and vodka all in the same place. Tasting was not expensive and you got to keep your glass. The staff was fun.

The drive to the distillery is beautiful! And once there it continues! You can choose six different vodka, moonshine, liquor or rum. Share with your travel pal to try more! Will go back.
